5 PREFACE & Introduction Preface With this brochure we would like to illustrate the wide variety of study options in Austria. The higher education location Austria unites three very important aspects: a great number of high quality tertiary education institutions in all nine federal provinces, a long academic tradition and an open-minded atmosphere for creativity and innovation. In many areas the Austrian institutions have accomplished outstanding achievements on an international level and gained high reputation. But it will only be through a co-operation of all four areas of the higher education sector universities, private universities, universities of applied sciences, and university colleges of teacher education with their respective tasks that the international competitiveness of Austria can be guaranteed. The brochure Higher Education Institutions in Austria is an overview of universities, universities of applied sciences, private universities and university colleges of teacher education. By means of short presentations, contact addresses and references we endeavour to provide an overview of the Austrian higher education system for all those who are interested in studying or pursuing research in Austria or getting in contact with one of these institutions. We would like to use this opportunity to thank all institutions and people who contributed with their great commitment to the making of this brochure. Information about study options in Austria can be found in our Study Programmes. A brief Guide for International Students, where you will also find important practical and legal information (entry and residence requirements, living costs, accommodation, lists of the fields of study, etc.) which is important for the preparation of your stay in Austria. Do not hesitate to order this guide from us More information at Rita Michlits (OeAD-GmbH) Introduction Knowledge and innovation are the two pillars on which the broad spectrum of higher education in Austria is founded. Extremely complex university structures that have grown over a long tradition as well as very young institutions characterise the higher education landscape in Austria. Austria offers a space for both a scientific discourse intent on constructive criticism and discussion and for a rather application- and practice-oriented specialised education. The numerous Austrian institutions of higher education have become the most important site of academic teaching and research and they offer a broad range of study options. The university colleges of teacher education offer excellent educational possibilities for teacher training throughout Austria. Internationality is an important factor for the high quality standard that is guaranteed by the institutions of tertiary education. Numerous bilateral grant programmes, joint study programmes, university 4
6 partnerships, the EU programme Erasmus+, educational networks such as CEEPUS, ASEA Uninet, etc. enable a great number of exchanges and a constant crossing of borders. The Bologna Process has been widely established in Austria. Transparency and acknowledgement of bachelor and master s programmes are vital requirements for the opening within and outside Europe. Science that stretches beyond regional borders is the basis for the vibrant meeting place of research and teaching that is offered by the Austrian institutions of higher education. 78% of the students study at universities, 12% at universities of applied sciences, 5% at university colleges of teacher education, 3% at universities of the arts and the remaining 2% at private universities. 23% of the approximately 340,000 degree programme students in the academic year 2012/2013 are international students (Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research, unidata). Universities Wide variety of study options. The Austrian universities display an enormous variety in terms of both size and structure. Their educational offer reflects this diversity. The study programmes at the traditional comprehensive universities in Vienna, Graz, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Linz and Salzburg cover a broad spectrum of academic subjects. Austria s technical and medical universities, on the other hand, concentrate on a range of highly specialised theoretical and applied disciplines. In 1994 the Austrian university landscape was expanded even further by the establishment of the Danube University Krems for postgraduate education. As of January 1, 2004 the former medical faculties were disjointed from their home universities and turned into institutions in their own right, the autonomous Medical Universities of Vienna, Graz, and Innsbruck. Research and teaching are seen as an inseparable entity at Austrian universities. Underpinned by this tenet all academic fields (Humanities, Natural Sciences, Law, Social and Economic Sciences, Medicine, Technology, Mining Sciences, Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences and Veterinary Medicine) aim at fostering interdisciplinarity. Interdisciplinary research work promotes a university education that strives to develop far-sighted concepts and solutions. The permanent dialogue with trade and industry has led to the establishment of a great number of competence centres in which innovative cooperation between university departments and enterprises takes place. In the last few years the Austrian university system has introduced the European three-tier system of degrees according to the Bologna process. Besides, the old two-tier system still exists in some subject areas and universities (for example Medicine). 5
7 Universities of the Arts Tradition and modernity. Whether it is music, dramatic arts, fine arts or applied arts, Austria s universities of the arts provide an ideal space to tap into the fascinating interaction of art and science and acquire an exquisite education in a host of subjects. The universities of the arts in Austria have the highest percentage of international students (46% in the academic year 2012/2013, Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research, unidata). Austria has traditionally been at the confluence of a rich variety of artistic streams, trends and styles. Today it continues to offer ample opportunities: the sound festival Ars Electronica in Linz, the Salzburg Festival, which is very rich in tradition, the jazz big band in Graz, the Viennale film festival, the Baroque palace theatre in Schönbrunn or the Picture Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts, to name but a few. While the academic universities mission is closely tied to research, the universities of the arts supreme objective is anchored in the development and opening up of the arts. The interaction between art and science, theory and practice presents a challenge to creativity, innovation and technical brilliance, which is taken up by the universities of the arts. Private Universities A perfect study environment. Austrian private universities offer innovative and high quality education and provide students with personal attention at the highest academic level. Continuous internal and external evaluation of teaching and research as well as active promotion of the arts assure constant university quality development. The Austrian private universities refine existing and establish new degree programmes based on current and future educational needs. Periodic external reaccreditation reviews supplement internal quality management and provide graduates with excellent chances for their future careers. The Conference of Austrian Private Universities (OePUK) serves as official representative for its members both in Austria and abroad. The curricula of the Austrian private universities as well as the academic degrees awarded by them differ from university to university. More information: Universities of Applied Sciences A booming sector. Since the start of the first few universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschule) degree programmes in the winter semester 1994/1995 a constantly growing demand can be experienced in this sector. The programmes on offer at pre- 6
8 sent provide for an academically based and practiceoriented education (www.fachhochschulen.ac.at). In line with the Bologna Process universities of applied sciences offer bachelor and master s programmes, and in a few cases still the former diploma programmes. Practice-oriented. In the areas of economy, tourism, technology, information technology, health, security, media and design the universities of applied sciences provide students with qualifications for specific occupations that are in line with the demands of trade and industry. Mandatory career-oriented practical training units or job-based internships are part of the universities of applied sciences degree programmes. Since 1996/97 part-time study programmes for working people have been offered, too, which take into account the specific situation of working students. Whether you are interested in modern telecommunication technologies, e-business, biotechnological processes, traffic ecology, industrial IT, healthcare management, facility management or many more subjects, the study options at the universities of applied sciences are adapted constantly and in permanent dialogue with trade and industry to meet the trends and requirements of the time. University Colleges of Teacher Education The Austrian university colleges of teacher education offer a three-year (six-semester) Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree in combination with a teaching qualification for primary, secondary or special needs schools. Some of them also offer BEd degrees for polytechnic schools and for teaching religious education. The University College of Agrarian and Environmental Pedagogy offers a Bachelor of Education in combination with a qualification for teaching in schools of agriculture. Graduates of higher secondary education are accepted at the university colleges after going through a screening procedure and after successfully completing a four-week information period. The study programme comprises courses in educational science, subject studies relevant for the respective teaching qualification and practical school experience. There are nine state-run university colleges, e.g. in Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Salzburg, Tyrol, Styria, Vorarlberg, Carinthia and two in Vienna and five private ones maintained by the dioceses of Graz, Innsbruck, Linz and Vienna and by a foundation in Burgenland. 7
