about us

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.
