Covid 19 information update

We started our winter term successfully with orientation days for our almost 30 incoming students.
In order to guarantee a high degree of protection against the Corona Virus, all students have been asked to wear masks at the Pädagogische Hochschule Upper Austria. Lectures are hold mostly in classrooms where our students have to keep a distance of one meter (one person/table), big lectures are offered as online teaching. Some courses are also organized in a hybrid way: classroom teaching combined with online teaching. Teaching practice in schools takes place as usually. 

We are looking forward to receive your nominations for spring term starting with an orientation week in the last week of February 2021.

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.
