We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Austria's historic universities reflect the country's centuries of cultural and intellectual achievement. A Masters in Austria will allow you to take part in this proud legacy, studying at internationally renowned universities in some of Europe's most beautiful cities.
Famous as the home of some of history's greatest composers, Austria offers a cultural backdrop that few other study abroad destinations can compare with - and an ideal setting for subjects like music, architecture and theatre.
It's not all about Mozart and Mahler though. As you'd expect from the country that also gave the world Sigmund Freud, Erwin Schrodinger and Arnold Schwarzenegger, opportunities for Masters study in Austria are very broad.
You'll be able to choose from academic programmes at prestigious public research universities as well as specialised professional and vocational training at Austria's Universities of Applied Sciences (or 'Fachhochschulen').
There are over 65,000 students studying abroad in Austria (making it the sixth most popular international study destination in Europe).
Masters degrees in Austria usually take two years to complete and the Austrian academic year runs between October and September.
If you are an EU or EEA student, you can usually study a Masters in Austria for free - provided you complete your course within the assigned period. Students from outside the EU or EEA will pay an average of €700 per semester.
The main teaching language at Austrian universities is German, but many Masters programmes are also offered in English.
Students from the EU and EEA won't require a visa to study in Austria, but will need to register with the authorities upon arrival. International students will usually need to apply for a permit before travelling to Austria (unless arriving on a separate tourist visa).
You can find more information in our in-depth guide to Masters study in Austra. This includes advice on the Austrian university system and degree structure, together with detailed guidance on visas and immigration for study abroad in Austria.
You can also read our guide to living as a Masters student in Austria for information about accommodation, living costs and working whilst studying abroad in the country. If you're planning to study a Masters in Austria in German, take a look at our introduction to international German language tests.
