Students may study in Vienna for a semester or a year for full University of Illinois credit. Students may take classes in German or in English. Illinois in Vienna is open to all Illinois students as well as students from other universities. Among the most frequent Illinois students are those from the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Commerce and Business Administration, and Engineering. Recent participants have also included students from such institutions as Cornell, Georgetown, Vassar, and Yale. Students' background in German varies from no German to advanced.


We offer our graduate students several funded opportunities to conduct research and (on select programs) to teach at German and Austrian universities. We maintain a regular exchange with the Universität Greifswald. And, graduate students also travel regularly to European archives and universities with the support of external (Fulbright, DAAD, etc.) and internal sources (School of Literatures, Cultures, and Linguistics fellowships, departmental fellowships, Dissertation Completion fellowships, and summer research support).
