Studying in Salzburg

Dear Students,
We are very pleased that you are interested in studying with us at the University of Salzburg!
Our University is the largest higher education institution in the federal state of Salzburg, with almost 2,800 employees and around 18,000 students. We have over 50% of academic staff and approximately 38% of our students come from international backgrounds.
Salzburg is one of the safest cities in the world, and the University’s excellent student-to-staff ratio provides students with a supportive environment and a wonderful learning culture. The University’s twenty sites are located in and around Salzburg’s historical center, which is a UNESCO listed world heritage site. Situated in the heart of Europe, Salzburg offers fantastic connections to neighbouring countries and to some of Austria’s most beautiful alpine national parks. It is also a culturally vibrant city, home to world-famous performing arts and music festivals. Operating in this setting, the University of Salzburg offers international students and scholars abroad a unique range of experiences.
The university of Salzburg, unlike other universities, offers a distinctive contrast between historical and modern features. It was first founded in 1622 as a Catholic Benedictine University by the former Archbishop of Salzburg Paris Lodron, who was born in the small northern Italian city of Rovereto. During the Napoleonic Wars, at the beginning of the 19th Century, the University was closed down and was not reopened, even after Salzburg became part of the Austrian Empire. Many of our institution’s building are within walking distance of each other or in purpose-built research and teaching facilities nearby. Some of these buildings date back to the time of the university’s original founding, whilst others are newly built with striking modern designs. All buildings are equipped with up-to-date facilities for teaching, learning and research.
We hope that you have an interesting and enjoyable time at our University, as well as in Salzburg itself!
