Young, but oho. With just over 50 years of age, the JKU has already experienced a lot – and has a lot to offer: on the one hand an excellent range of courses with more than 60 fields of study, and on the other a place of top research. More than 110 institutes are located very close to each other on the campus, which is unique in Austria. This is well thought-out and modern and promotes one thing above all: exchange. Around 20,000 students and around 2,700 teachers and staff can not only learn together, but also live together – and have a good time together.
what you should know about us
All our courses are practice-oriented. From the first semester onwards students in initial training continuously engage in school experience.
We aim for a balance of research-based and pedagogical approaches by providing support for research activities with a focus on the analysis of teaching and learning processes.
International teaching and research exchanges play an important role at our institution. From the third semester on, our students can spend one or two semesters abroad. They will not lose a semester since all examinations taken abroad are fully recognised here.
The Institute of Media Education endeavours to equip students in initial as well as in-service and supplementary training courses with the background required for critically analysing media content and for using and creating media judiciously.
Our campus is situated in the green belt of Linz. However, it takes only 15 minutes to walk to the town center or 5 minutes by bus.
