Covid 19 information update

Just now most courses are running in distance learning and there will be no change probable for this winter semester. For the coming summer semester we cannot tell, how the situation will develop. So far it does not look like a "normal" start would be possible, but we monitor developments concerning the Covid 19 situation in Europe and Austria continuosly and update this information. It's very likely that the start of the summer semester will have to be in distance learning, which will be transfered to in person teaching as soon as possible. Students participating from their home countries online will continue working together with students present in Linz, teachers using classroom streaming facilities. 

Linz - a great place to study


Linz is Austrias third biggest city (appr. 200.000 inhabitants) and lies in the „Heart of Europe“, on the main motor way and trainlines, about half way between Vienna and Salzburg. It’s „old town“ with cafés and restaurant is a pedestrian zone and is easy to reach from residences and the university by foot.

Europe’s great river, the Danube, connects Linz with East and West and this influences the pulsating life of modern culture. Linz is hosting important festivals like the "Ars Electronica Festival" and the "Crossing Europe"-film festival! Museums and Concerthalls for different tastes offer a wide range of activities.

Linz also has it’s own airport with regular connections mostly from Frankfurt, London and Vienna as well as charter flights from different European Cities. 

Everybody who is interested in nature and outdoor activities can find the main range of the Alps appr. 70 km South of the city. In the North the countryside rises to the granite hills of the „Mühlviertel“ just across the river on the Northern outskirts.
