Students with special needs

The University of Arts Linz welcomes students with special needs. Incoming students with physical, mental or health disabilities have access to the same support services and facilities that are offered to all other students. If there is information about special needs known to the sending institution, it should be provided to our International Office. This is meant to make all the relevant preparation before students' arrival, and assist the students during the exchange period.
Erasmus Program: Incoming Erasmus students are advised that additional financial Erasmus+ funding or any inclusion funding must be applied for at their home university.
