Austrian National Union of Students Counselling for Secondary School Graduates

For many prospective students it is challenging to find the right study programme: There are approx. 800 bachelor programmes offered within Austria, so it is not surprising that one may lose track of them. The Austrian National Union of Students (Österreichische HochschülerInnenschaft - ÖH) offers extensive information on topics such as the choice of degree programme, where and when to register for entrance examinations or apply for degree programmes, or how to finance your studies.

Apart from numerous consultation appointments in schools you have the possibility of receiving personal guidance directly in their office during their office hours. You can also reach the consultants via e-mail, phone or chat.

An important tool for carrying out independent research is the website (available only in German). Here you can find up-to-date information and useful links to all fields of study in Austria.

In order to get a better idea of one or more fields of study, the programme "Try out University" (Studieren Probieren) offers you the opportunity to accompany a student of a university, a university of applied sciences or a teacher training college to a course and to ask him/her for insider information regarding the respective degree programme.
