Why study in Austria

Once the center of power for the large Austro-Hungarian Empire, Austria was reduced to a small republic after its defeat in World War I. Following annexation by Nazi Germany in 1938 and subsequent occupation by the victorious Allies in 1945, Austria's status remained unclear for a decade. A State Treaty signed in 1955 ended the occupation, recognized Austria's independence, and forbade unification with Germany. A constitutional law that same year declared the country's "perpetual neutrality" as a condition for Soviet military withdrawal. The Soviet Union's collapse in 1991 and Austria's entry into the EU in 1995 have altered the meaning of this neutrality. A prosperous, democratic country, Austria entered the EU Economic and Monetary Union in 1999.From it’s international reputation for academic excellence to it’s affordable tuition and living expenses Australia has a lot to offer international students.

  • Austria is a wonderful country, with a typically European focus on providing quality higher education and study. This means that studying here will be productive, institutions are well-equipped and, most importantly, your education will be well-respected. Austria is also a beautiful, advanced, and cultured country.
  • Austria has been the seat of culture for most of Europe since its inception in the late 900’s, and has a long and impressive history, with a list of firsts and accolades longer than The Ringstrasse. Vienna is the capital city, and is a stunning city to look at and to visit, with culture and history seeping out of the walls of every building for miles around the old town. The city of music, as it’s known, is full of enviable tourist attractions such as the Palais Liechtenstein, where the Liechtenstein Royal Family lived right up until 1938. It says a lot about a city when even the Royal Family from a different country chose to live there.
  • Austria is a very mountainous country, and it’s difficult to go anywhere here without being awed by the horizon in every direction. The mountains provide excellent entertainment for the more adventurous and outdoorsy Austrians, who ski and hike their way through their stunning country regularly. The younger generations of Austrians, however, have chosen to stay in the cities and have in a very short space of time managed to carve a modern edge into Austrian culture; which for many years has been seen as overly highbrow in some respects.
  • The cities of Austria have become popular hosts for hedonistic nights out. Although this is no Berlin as far as clubs and bars go, Vienna is not far behind, whilst other cities such as Graz and Salzburg enjoy large student populations.
  • Austria is one of the richest countries in the world, with a GDP per capita of $50,546 in 2013.
  • Austria’s focus on higher education is reflected in its tuition fees, which are incredibly low for the standard of education received, even for international students. Even better, the opportunity to learn one of the most important languages in the modern world – German – is a large attraction for prospective international students, and is another CV-enhancing bonus of studying here. And when we say “low tuition fees”, we mean really low. See the section on the Cost of Studying and Living in Austria, below.
  • Austria has long had a history of outstanding higher education, with some of Europe’s finest philosophers, scientists and writers having worked and lived here. Vienna in particular has a long tradition of academic achievement. This is where the Vienna Circle, probably the most significant movement in Philosophy since the Ancient Greeks, was born; and this is where new advances in the sciences and the arts are still occurring every year. Austria is a wonderfully traditional place to study, and a lovely, beautiful and exciting place to live.
