Have you ever dreamed of skiing the Austrian Alps, surrounded by centuries-old towering pines and majestic white-capped mountains? How about taking a leisurely stroll through the Austrian capital of Vienna? It is home not only to savory sausages, but to the Father of Modern Psychology, Sigmund Freud, and an immensely rich ancient Roman history. The Republic of Austria is landlocked in central Europe-boasts a vast political, educational and artistic culture. Because of this, it's considered an ideal study abroad location. Students of nearly every discipline are immediately immersed in the deep and varied customs of the country. Sandwiched between Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary (with which it was once unified), Switzerland, Italy, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Lichtenstein, Austria is located pretty much in the dead centre of Europe, forming a bridge between east and west.  It is one of Europe’s great cultural capitals, and for fans of architecture, music and art is not to be missed.

Austria is a dream locale for studying abroad. It offers unparalleled opportunities with the finest colleges and universities. Can you picture walking through an ancient town-square and going to class in an actual palace? How about taking any number of classes in German to sharpen your language skills? History students love studying the sensational architecture of the nation-both ancient and modern, along with the compelling past of Austria, and of Europe as a whole. Austria provides students with extensive learning programs, competitive academics, fascinating history and impressive cultural experiences. It's sure to broaden your horizons-not only as a student, but as a purveyor of the past and adventurer of the present-day.
If you are considering studying abroad for higher education, Austria is an excellent choice. Austria has everything you need - from beautiful cities and a great cultural experience to the striking Alps and great education system. At most institutions you are required to speak German, but there are plenty of options if you would rather conduct your studies in English. A good command of German is generally a prerequisite for entry into higher education programs in Austria as most programs and degrees are taught exclusively in German. At the postgraduate level however, especially at private institutions who cater toward international students, classes are given in English. Studying in Austria provides learners with endless opportunities for stimulating new experiences. With the influence of so many different cultures during its developing eras, the art, literature and architecture are fascinating. Vienna has been a center of musical innovation since the 1500s, with movers-and-shakers like Beethoven, Mozart and Strauss all penning masterpieces here. The architecture of Austria can delight and inspire any interested visitor, especially students.
