Studying & working in Austria

From a science and business perspective, Austria is a very attractive location. Internationality is a key element for excellent research and good teaching. When it comes to international orientation, Austria is a pioneer on both an European and a global level. Approximately one quarter of all students at Austrian universities come from abroad and have immigrated with the sole purpose of pursuing their academic career in Austria.

Austria strives to provide the right circumstances so that the knowledge of its students is put to good use right here – to the students benefit and to the benefit of Austria as a business location. In Austria you will find the headquarters of many international companies which not least benefit from the central location between the industrial countries of Western Europe and the dynamic growth markets in Central and Eastern Europe. This economically prosperous environment offers diverse career opportunities combined with one of the highest standards of living worldwide.

The brochure “Studying & working in Austria” provides information on the relevant legal requirements for studying and working in Austria and is meant to serve as a further building block for a comprehensive welcoming culture in Austria.
