Live and learn in Austria's most charming student town: Krems!
UNI students can study abroad at Krems University of Applied Sciences for either the semester, academic-year, or a short-term summer program.
This is an exchange partner so if you study abroad during the semester or academic year, you will pay UNI tuition and fees for this program.
Krems is a small town in Austria with around 23,000 people. It is about 40 miles from Vienna and is a very historic city.
The short-term summer program provides students the opportunity to engage the faculty's expertise of IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems and WU Vienna. Because of this, time is spent on the campus in Krems and Vienna. It is very easy to commute between the two cities (about 40 miles apart).
IMC Krems offers courses in Business, Digitalization and Engineering, Health, and Life Sciences. Details on course options available can be found on Krems' Course Overview page.
About one month prior to the semester start, students will be able to get information on the course registration.

From the semester and academic year-long experience, IMC Krems and the Study Abroad Advisors at UNI support students in finding accommodation - a list of available rooms (in students’ residences, shared apartments) will be provided during the application process.
The short-term summer program allows for commuting between Vienna and Krems on a daily basis. Because of this, the Study Abroad Center will pre-book student accommodations prior to departure.
