The University Mozarteum Salzburg maintains numerous cooperation agreements with various institutions worldwide and divides these into Erasmus+ and bilateral partnerships.
Erasmus+ is the most successful program of the European Union in the field of education. The experience gained abroad is a valuable asset for both professional and personal development. The University Mozarteum, after a successful application to the European Commission, was awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education for the full period of the program (2021-2027). For this purpose, an → "Erasmus Declaration on Higher Education Policy" was drafted. The charter entitles the holder to participate in all activities under the EU Erasmus+ program, as well as, for example, student and staff mobility in the form of a teaching visit or professional development activity.
Bilateral partnerships: The bilateral cooperation agreements that the Mozarteum University maintains with renowned institutions worldwide enable artistic exchanges in the form of cooperative projects or in the context of a study or teaching stay at a partner institution.
Erasmus + Inclusion Support: It is important to us to open the doors to greater mobility for people regardless of their personal and social background. The Erasmus+ program and the Mozarteum University want to promote inclusion, diversity and equal opportunities. People who wish to participate in the Erasmus+ program (students, teachers, training) can apply for an inclusion grant and are encouraged to apply. You can clarify the possibilities for an Erasmus+ application with inclusion support in a consultation with the staff of the International Affairs Department.

In times when Europeanization, internationalization and globalization are more than just buzzwords and a common European educational area with a broad range of courses and teaching content is increasingly becoming a reality, educational institutions also have the task of supporting and further expanding cooperation at both national and international level in the best possible way. The geographical location of the city of Salzburg as a connecting axis from north to south, which can be traced back historically to the 8th century, alone suggests the cultivation of contacts with the European area.
The idea of connecting Europe has a centuries-old tradition in Salzburg. W.A. Mozart traveled from his home to cities such as London, Paris, Milan, Naples and Prague, thus giving Salzburg's musical life a European dimension, which was continued in the following century by music festivals held in loose succession and reached a new dimension with the founding of the Salzburg Festival in the 20th century. Salzburg thus opened up not only to the pan-European, but also to the international sphere. The cultivation and promotion of contacts and cooperation in the field of fine arts was thus further intensified.
Internationality has also always been given great importance in the history of the Mozarteum University. Students of the most diverse nationalities take advantage of the opportunity to be educated at an institution for which renowned artistic personalities from all over the world have been recruited as teachers. They are keen to share their skills and art with the trainees and, through their own commitment and worldwide activities in cultural life as artists, educators or jurors, contribute significantly to initiating, promoting and developing contacts at European as well as international level with other cultural institutions and to fulfilling the mission of cooperation both within and outside the Erasmus+ program.
Mobility is an inherent theme and characteristic within the world of music and art, the importance of which manifests itself in numerous fields of action of the university. The University Mozarteum Salzburg sees international mobility as a natural part of university life. Mobility experiences and stays abroad enable students, young researchers and teachers as well as non-academic staff to gain additional knowledge and competencies.
The University Mozarteum Salzburg is therefore very concerned to consciously motivate students and teachers to participate in various mobility projects in order to make a stay abroad the norm. The Erasmus+ program enables our institution to cooperate with many European partners* in the field of student and faculty mobility, which would not be possible to this extent without EU support. All students (regardless of social and economic background) should have access to quality education.
The new Erasmus+ program generation will help the University Mozarteum Salzburg to create new incentives for participation in Erasmus+ mobilities (e.g. also for disadvantaged people). By introducing "blended mobility" and short-term mobilities, working students will also have the opportunity to gain experience abroad. This makes it possible to increase student mobility at the University Mozarteum Salzburg.
Internationalization strategy in relation to Erasmus+
Internationalization at the University Mozarteum Salzburg is already very well developed. The more than 2000 students come from five continents and about 70 countries. The approximately 550 teaching staff also represent a far-reaching internationality with a total of 38 different nationalities from three continents. The University Mozarteum Salzburg has risen from 32nd to 11th place in the international subject-related "QS World University Ranking" in the performance agreement period 2019-2021 (in 2018 it was still in 52nd place). Through numerous measures, it strives to continuously improve its international standing. For example, the International Summer Academy of the University Mozarteum Salzburg has earned a globally visible international reputation in its more than 100-year history, which is reflected in the high number of highly talented foreign applicants every year. The International Mozart Competition, which takes place every two years and whose final concert is regularly streamed by the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF), has gained a firm place in the league of top-class international music competitions.
In recent years, the Mozarteum University Salzburg has greatly increased its involvement in the relevant international networks and thus also assumes responsibility for the international shaping of the tertiary education sector in the field of the arts. Furthermore, the Development Plan 2022-2027 foresees the implementation of several international studies in order to further develop internationality in the field of teaching as well. In System Goal 6 of the GUEP 2022-2027 as well as in Chapter VI. of the Development Plan 2022-2027 of the University Mozarteum Salzburg, the perspectives and strategic orientations of internationalization are presented in detail.
Closely intertwined with the development planning, the University Mozarteum Salzburg has elaborated the following six objectives for its internationalization strategy:
- International visibility and profiling of the university as a whole
- Further development of study formats
- Perception, discourse and co-design of international quality standards in research, EEK and teaching
- Mobility as a broadening of the horizon of experience for students and teachers
- Dialogue of cultures
- Internationalization at home
The ERASMUS+ program contributes to the realization of these objectives. Especially the topic of mobility, but also the topics "Dialogue of Cultures" and "Internationalization at Home" experience an additional strengthening through the program, since mobility - as a bilateral exchange with partner institutions - also promotes internationalization on site.
The Mozarteum University Salzburg would like to participate in the Erasmus Key Action 1 (KA1) - Learning Mobility. Known forms of mobility are to be continued and intensified as usual (study visits, Erasmus+ teacher mobilities and staff mobilities). The procedures are to be further digitalized step by step through the introduction of the Online Learning Agreement and the European Student Card. Through the new Erasmus generation, the University Mozarteum Salzburg can also further expand its existing cooperation projects with worldwide partners and launch new projects.
The University Mozarteum Salzburg aims to implement the priorities of the new program by:
- promoting environmentally friendly methods in all program activities
- creating incentives for the participation of disadvantaged people
- implementing the program's digitization measures
- promoting civic engagement before, during and after the stay
Goals and objectives
The University Mozarteum Salzburg has set the following mobility goals for the performance agreement period 2022-2024:
- Increase the number of regular students with participation in an international mobility program (outgoing students) as well as
- increase the number of regular students with participation in international mobility programs (incoming students)
In addition, short student mobilities are to be supported through the introduction of the Blended Intensive Programs in order to increase student mobilities at the university and to enable students to gain the important learning experiences abroad also through short stays. Through regular evaluation of the mobilities (student as well as staff mobilities), the quality of the mobility will be reviewed. The partnerships of the University Mozarteum will also continue to be evaluated regularly. An example of a concretely planned project in the area of mobility in the performance agreement period 2022-2024 is a project on artistic work in "being on the road" with the incentive of a travel grant including network support and presentation at an international Bob Dylan Symposium, which was implemented for the first time in 2022. To support and promote mobility, the International Affairs Department was strengthened and reorganized in 2021. The expansion of the regional mapping project to the area of international cooperation planned for the performance agreement period 2022-2024 is intended to support the servicing and orientation of mobility as well as the quality of international cooperation.
A project also supporting the area of mobility in the performance agreement period 2022-2024 is the planned relaunch of the website of the University Mozarteum Salzburg. This will be accompanied by a redesign of the "International Affairs" section, so that the information offered to students and teachers on mobility and exchange programs will be made more intuitively accessible.another objective in this performance agreement period is to promote the internationalization of teacher education and to increase the mobility of teacher educators.
In addition, the development plan 2022-2027 formulates as a major concern the conception of structural measures to promote project-related student mobility beyond ERASMUS. Further topics mentioned in this context are the development of mobility windows, the structural anchoring of cooperations, the special case of Brexit in the context of university mobility, and the quality management of international activities. In relation to the objective of "internationalization at home", the following measures at the study location are also formulated in the Development Plan 2022-2027 and in the Performance Agreement 2022-2024:
- Deepening the repertoire of a particular culture
- Multilingualism in performances
- Maintaining contact with consulates and embassies, arranging students for performances in order to realize joint cultural programs
- Special teaching offers and access to research results, e.g. in the research field "Music and Migration"

Mobility under Erasmus+ or under a Bilateral Agreement does not include automatic insurance coverage. Students are obliged to take care of their insurance coverage for the entire duration of their stay abroad. This includes accident, liability and health insurance. It should be noted that not all costs may be covered, therefore it is recommended to take out additional insurance for the duration of the stay abroad. We therefore advise students to take out the following insurances during their stay abroad (study or internship), if they do not have them anyway:
- Health and accident insurance
- Liability insurance
- Travel and repatriation insurance
The Mozarteum University Salzburg is not liable for the consequences of non-insurance or underinsurance.
Health insurance in other European countries:
With the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) - which can be found on the back of the e-card - you can prove that you are legally insured in Austria. The EHIC is valid in all 27 EU countries as well as a number of other European countries in hospitals and doctors' offices that have a contract with the local public health insurance. List of EHIC countries. In addition to the EHIC, it is advisable to take out private travel health insurance that also covers transport costs to Austria and leisure accidents. Check with your health insurance company in time before departure.
Health insurance outside of Europe:
If you are studying abroad in a country where the European Health Insurance Card is not valid, you must first pay for your own medical treatment on site. If you have a valid statutory health insurance in Austria, you can apply afterwards to the Austrian Health Insurance Fund (ÖGK) for reimbursement of costs for treatment abroad. Only a part of the costs will be reimbursed. Again, we recommend that you take out additional private travel health insurance, which also includes transport costs to Austria and leisure accidents.
Accident and liability insurance:
As an ÖH member, you are insured against accidents and liability for the entire semester by paying the ÖH fee. This insurance coverage also applies to accidents or damages that occur during your studies at the host campus or on the way there. It is therefore recommended that you take out additional insurance that is also valid outside working hours. Especially for stays abroad with a limited duration, we strongly recommend taking out your own (private) travel health insurance including return transport to Austria. Detailed information on accident and liability insurance for stays abroad can be found on the ÖH website under OeH Versicherung.
Accident and liability insurance for study abroad and internships abroad in general:
As an ÖH member, you are insured against accidents and liability for the entire semester by paying the ÖH fee, even during stays abroad. In principle, accidents that occur during your studies/internship are insured. Liability insurance covers damage caused by students to other persons during their studies/internship. Detailed information on accident and liability insurance for stays abroad can be found on the ÖH website under OeH Versicherung.
The ÖH insurance does not include health insurance! There is no insurance coverage for liability claims in the USA, Australia and Canada!
Information for Erasmus+ Internship:
Regarding accident and liability insurance, you are obliged to clarify with the internship provider before starting your internship whether you will be covered by accident and/or liability insurance by the internship provider for the duration of your internship. Subsidiarily, students are insured against accidents and liability within the framework of the OeH Versicherung during the internship or on the way between the internship site and the place of residence, provided that the ÖH contribution has been paid in the respective semester.
However, it is recommended to take out an additional insurance policy that is also valid outside working hours.
Exchange students must have health insurance during their stay in Salzburg, which is subject to a fee in Austria.
- Students from EU/EEA countries or Switzerland bring their European Health Insurance Card EHIC with them. With this card they have access to all medically necessary public health care services in Austria (under the same conditions and at the same cost).
- If students are third country nationals (i.e. not from the EU/EEA or Switzerland), they need a health insurance valid in Austria.
In principle, travel health insurance must be taken out in order to enter Austria with a visa (for the entire duration of the stay). Please note that this insurance must be valid in Austria and must provide sufficient coverage for various health issues (insurance coverage of well over 30,000 euros including a guarantee to cover any recovery and repatriation costs).
Students in Salzburg who have special medical needs are advised to bring prescriptions or medical indications right from home. There is no special medical emergency service on the university campus. Students must independently arrange for a* suitable* doctor in the city in case of illness or for examinations.
