Dear visitors!

This website is intended to provide you with a comprehensive overview of our activities and the wide range of information we offer. 

Our responsibilities in the area of education cover the entire school system, from elementary education and primary school to the completion of secondary school education, as well as university colleges of teacher education. Adult education and lifelong learning also fall within our sphere of responsibility.

On the following web-pages you will also find an overview of the Austrian university landscape, details about studying in Austria, the FHStG – the University of Applied Studies Act, EURAXESS Austria, the Office of Science and Technology at the Austrian Embassy in Washington D.C., and about the "PROVISO" project supporting Austrian participation in FP7.

In addition our ministry offers an extensive range of services. Please feel free to make use of these services and do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
