University Vienna

The University of Vienna was founded in 1365 by Duke Rudolf IV. It is the oldest university in the German-speaking world and one of the largest universities in Central Europe. In 2015, the University of Vienna celebrates its 650th anniversary.

The University of Vienna is one of the oldest and largest universities in Europe: 20 faculties and centers employ about 10,400 people, including about 7,500 scientists.

The University of Vienna is thus the largest research institution in Austria as well as the largest educational institution: Approximately 88,900 national and international students are currently enrolled at the University of Vienna. With 184 regular degree programs, it has the most diverse range of courses in the country. The University of Vienna is also an important institution for continuing education in Austria. Founded in 1365, the Alma Mater Rudolphina Vindobonensis celebrated its 650th founding anniversary in 2015 with a diverse annual program.

Johannes Kepler University Linz

The JKU has been around for 50 years, making it a comparatively young university. That makes its development over the past five decades all the more remarkable. Today, the university employs over 2,700 people.  Over 20,000 students are currently enrolled in an academic degree program at the JKU. Their drive, curiosity, and creativity align with those of the university’s namesake, Johannes Kepler, who lived and worked in Linz between 1612 and 1627. The JKU combines the past and the present and, as Upper Austria’s largest institution of research and education, the university continues to forge ahead and shape the future.

University Innsbruck

Founded in 1669, the Leopold-Franzens University Innsbruck is the largest university in the western part of Austria. Located at a traditional north-south crossroads connecting Europe, it is oriented internationally while positioned locally. This is also reflected in the current research focus areas: These include Alpine Space, Cultural Encounters – Cultural Conflicts, Economy, Politics & Society (EPoS), Molecular Biosciences, Physics, Scientific Computing and the Digital Science Center (DiSC).

The University’s main mandate is to focus on research and development, teaching and continuing professional education and training. In all these fields its regional status is to be deepened and its high ranking in the European academic area is to be guaranteed. . The University of Innsbruck is divided into 16 faculties and 83 departments.
