Mobility promotion

Du nutzt öffentliche Verkehrsmittel um zur Fachhochschule oder zum Praktikum zu kommen? Dann haben wir gute Nachrichten 🙂 

Wir, die Hochschüler_innenschaft der Fachhochschule Kärnten, fördern die Benutzung von öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln durch einen Zuschuss für Fahrten zur Erreichung des Studienortes oder der Praktikumsstelle, sofern ein Praktikum im Curriculum vorgesehen ist.

The subsidy is granted for the purchase of ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) tickets, annual tickets, semester tickets or monthly tickets, or for individual trips for the purpose of traveling home during an academic year. During the lecture and exam-free periods (February, July, August and September), a mobility grant is only paid in the case of a compulsory internship according to the internship duration specified in the curriculum and up to the maximum grant amount. 

The trips must be related to the studies or the course. Excursions within the framework of studies or a course cannot be funded.

Amount of subsidy:

The Students Union of the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences grants a maximum of € 40.00 per semester or € 10.00 per month. The subsidy can only be paid once per student per semester. In case of simultaneous use of different means of public transport, the subsidy will not be paid out twice.

Ein kleines Rechenbeispiel:
📌Das „Kärnten Ticket“ für Studierende kostet € 299,-/ Jahr.
📌Spare bis zu € 80/ Studienjahr, wenn du pro Semester einmal um Mobilitätsförderung bei der ÖH FH Kärnten ansuchst.
