Internationalisation has been one of the main targets of the University of Applied Sciences BFI Vienna since its foundation. We successfully put the Bologna System into practice to promote cultural exchange through mobility and to support employability as well as quality improvement in higher education. For the continuous efforts and fruitful implementation the European Commission repeatedly awarded us the Diploma Supplement label and the ECTS label.
We have established a network with more than 80 partner universities throughout the world and offer a wide range of services to our students who seek international experience. Currently we offer 11 double degree programmes, international weeks and strongly focus on the international and intercultural orientation of teaching and learning with the aim to provide equal opportunities for all our students. Similarly, we support our international students with tailormade programmes like orientation weeks, Austrian language and culture courses, a buddy system, a wide range of social activities organised by local students and joint projects where international and local students work together in diverse teams.
