Studying in Austria

Austria has long attracted students from all over the world - and not without reason! Here we give you an overview of the Austrian higher education system, lifestyle and culture.
As an international student, it can be difficult to find your way around a foreign country. Here you will find the first places to go, tips and tricks for the first period of your studies.
We place special emphasis on finding the right health insurance. As a European student, your statutory health insurance usually covers you in Austria, but only to a limited extent and only at the usual costs in your home country. As a student from a third country (non EU country), the right health insurance is even compulsory in order to obtain a visa. Here you will find all important information pertaining to this.
