In case required by the program:
The required language skills depend on the mobility program. The certificates have to be sbmitted either at the time of application or the beginning of the stay.
CPY abroad: B2 language skills of the language of the host country and/or the working language of the hospital (documentation, patient contact) are required.
South Tyrol and Switzerland: if the working language of the hospital is German (documented in the Learning Agreement) no other proof needs to be submitted.
If the native language of the student is the same as the language required in the hospital, the native language counts as langauge proof.
Reference in brackets for B2.
Online language courses, self-evaluations are not sufficient proof.
Through the Austrian Students' Union (ÖH) you are accident and liability insured during your stay abroad (Attention: this accident and liability insurance is not vaild for the USA, Australia and Canada).
This is, however, not a general health insurance!
Further information can be found on the ÖH website.
We strongly recommend to take out a private health and accident insurance for your stay abroad.
