Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschulen)

 

In Austria there is a wide variety of institutions of tertiary education. In addition to public uni­ver­sities, the Austrian tertiary sector includes universities of applied sciences (UAS, Fachhoch­schulen, since 1993), private universities (since 1999) and university colleges of teacher education.

The common language of instruction is German but some of the programmes are offered in English (about 16 % of the degree programmes at public universities in 2019).
