Klagenfurt University is a multi-campus university, which has been a dynamic institution since the year 1979 when it was founded.
The structure and the manageable scale of the university have positive effects on teaching and on internal administration. These benefits are further enhanced by the nature of a multi-campus university with three locations in Austria: Klagenfurt (main campus), Graz and Vienna (Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies – IFF Vienna Campus). This structure is of considerable advantage for incoming students as it opens the possibility of choosing between three locations.

The Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies in Vienna offers a Masters Program in Social and Human Ecology. The Program allows BA-degree holders in natural or social sciences, economics or technical sciences to continue their studies in the interdisciplinary field of Social and Human Ecology. Students from different backgrounds study the principles, theories and methodologies of Social and Human Ecology.

Program Students (Program Students study within the framework of a European Program or within a Bilateral Agreement between Klagenfurt University or the IFF Faculty and their Home University) need to be nominated by their home university to the International Office in Vienna.
Once the International Office has received the nomination, we send general information via e-mail along with the Application for Admission as a Program Student to the selected students. This document must be filled out, signed and sent back to the International Office in Vienna. Approximately two months before the student’s arrival date, the Admission Office will send a Letter of Admission (Bescheid) by post (see below for details).
While program or international students are enrolled at the IFF-Faculty, they enjoy the opportunity of taking additional courses at other universities in Vienna as co-registered students. If you are interested in a co-registration, please contact the International Office in Vienna.
A Learning Agreement is a list of courses that you draw up with your program coordinator, listing the module name and credits for each of the classes you will attend during your stay at the IFF Faculty in Vienna.
The Course Catalogue (Vorlesungsverzeichnis) is issued shortly before the beginning of each semester. It lists the courses along with descriptions of all the departments at the IFF Faculty. There are also course catalogues from each of the departments which contain detailed descriptions of the courses on offer, provide reading lists, and indicate the number of credits students receive for each module. These course catalogues are very useful as a source of information on course credits which can be brought forward as valid credits upon your return to your home university. You can find the Course Catalogue online at: http://www.uni-klu.ac.at/iff/inhalt/438.htm by clicking at the link to the Vienna courses.
Please bear in mind that you must also extend your stay in rooms at the student residence.

Every student receives a letter of admission (Bescheid) entitling them to enroll at the university in the subject which they have applied for. This letter states your personal details and specifies the subject(s) for which you have been accepted.
Enrolment of program students takes place at the International Office at IFF Vienna, Schottenfeldgasse 29/1, on the 4th floor in Room 406. The enrolment always takes place at the beginning of the semester and students must come in person with the following documents:
Enquiries concerning housing should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Austrian law requires that international students have sufficient funds to cover their living costs during their stay in Vienna.
The cost of living and studying in Vienna amounts to ca. € 600 per month. A room in a student residence costs on average about € 350 per month. Private rooms can be higher. Students should also be aware that a relatively large sum of money is needed at the beginning of their stay, because a rental deposit of approx. € 700 has to be paid before arrival in Vienna. Students are advised to purchase a semester ticket for public transportation in Vienna. Viennese public transportation is highly efficient and reliable.
