Quality of life is very high

Did you know that Vienna in Austria scored first place in the Mercer Quality of Living 2019 Ranking for the 10th year in a row?

A leading provider of data on quality of living for employees sent to work abroad, the Mercer ranking is based on the standard of the natural environment, the socio-cultural environment, housing, recreation, school and education, and more.

By winning again this year, Austria promises to offer international students a rewarding study adventure.

Excel your German language skills 

As a German-speaking country, many Austrian universities expect you to take extra German language classes.

Part of your semester credits, these additional lessons will widen your language skills and introduce you to a new culture.

Future employers outside or inside Austria will be impressed with your hard work and commitment to learning another language and embracing new knowledge.
