Description

Founded in 1585, the University of Graz is the second oldest university in Austria as well as being one of its largest.

Numerous successful scientists, Nobel Laureates among them, have begun their careers at the university, including the physicist and philosopher Ludwig Boltzmann, who was twice a professor at the university twice where he developed his statistical theory on heat, and Alfred Wegener who developed the theory of continental drift.

From archaeology to experimental physics, the university today offers over 120 programmes across its six faculties. Its newest faculty, of Environmental and Regional Sciences and Education, opened in 2007 and although the university once comprised its own medical institution, the Medical University Graz (as it’s now called) became an independent entity in 2004.

Around 12% of the university’s 31,500 students are international, and the university is heavily involved in international mobility programmes. Graz currently offers a range of study and research opportunities with around 500 partner organisations around the globe.

Courses at Graz are taught mainly in German and students are expected to have a level of proficiency in the language. The university does run a doctoral programme in Natural Sciences though, which is offered in English.

Located in the southeast of the country, Graz is home to a total of six universities and the city is predominantly considered to be a ‘university town’, where every sixth resident is said to be a student.

As a historic, well-preserved city that features a wide variety of architectural styles, Graz has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. It is also located close to the nearby cities of Vienna and Salzburg, and close to Croatia, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.

In 2003, Graz was designated a European Capital of Culture.

As a student of doctoral studies at University of Graz, I would state my opinion as a good enough because it is surely worth of money but not the top level. Regarding the Staff (Professors, Assistants, Collaborators etc.) they share a very special connection with the students. Most important, they always have time to help to assist you or to give you fine advice. Even though I find this very kind of them, scientifically they are not on the required level as top European universities are. So, I recommend this University as a good one to reach master's degree or bachelor degree but not the one to study doctoral studies.

The University of Graz is good value. The facilities are good and the personal helpful. The tuition conditions I had there were optimum but I know it could not be the case for 1st-year students, especially in law. The teachers are high profiles, especially in history and international relations. Be ready to help yourself if you are not a German native speaker though, especially with questions regarding the administration

As a student of BA Transcultural Communication I would like to say: - the Curriculum is being constantly changed and has a lot of complications and difficulties such as not being able to change the study languages without loosing at least one semester because of unnecessary and restrictive conditions - it is more science than practical oriented - there is no standard level for languages required, which means even though there are entrance exams the levels depend of the group dynamics
