The university is situated in a lively location in Vienna’s second district: the first district, with Museumsquartier and Rathausplatz just a short trip away on the U2 underground line. You can reach the Praterstern interchange in just two minutes, or take time out in the Prater park – the options are almost endless. The university is located on three different sites. The main building is close to the U2 station, Messe Prater, just a short walk from the leafy surroundings of Prater park. You will also find the university’s main library there. The Media Quarter Marx site is located next to the Puls4 and Pro7 media groups.
Austria's Austrian Universities of Applied Sciences began in 1994 and now educate 50,000 students in the country. There UAS system in Austria is different than others I have experienced thus far. Like other countries that have reputable UAS programs, there is a practical focus and an emphasis on providing students with the skills and knowledge they will need in the workforce. In fact, the country-wide employment rate for graduates of UAS programs is 90%. Unlike UAS programs in other countries, almost all of the graduates go directly into master’s degree programs, and many graduates do continue on to study in Ph.D. programs. Further, the entry requirements are not lowered necessarily lower for UAS programs in Austria.
