Program Description:
Karl Franzens Universität Graz
Graz, Austria
Graz, Austria
The university was founded in 1585 by Archduke Karl II and re-established as a university institution in 1827 by Emperor Franz I. One of the oldest universities in Central Europe, Graz combines five centuries of scholarly tradition with a forward-looking commitment to teaching and research.
Graz offers the atmosphere and first-class facilities of a vibrant modern city (opera, theaters, a lively pub-scene…) with the charm and architectural beauty of a historic town. The city center is one of the best-preserved in Central Europe and only a 10-minute walk away from the university. Graz is a clean, safe, and beautiful city, which is small enough to feel at home, but big enough to provide students with plenty of entertainment during study breaks.
Academic System and Language Requirements
Over 100 study programs are organized in six faculties, or colleges. Course subjects available range from Theology and Economic Sciences to Languages and Natural Sciences.
Basically the language of instruction is German. The equivalent of two years of college German (level B2) is desirable for students who want to take courses in German. Students with no German proficiency can be accepted if they find enough courses in English to meet their home University's credit requirements. For these students, participation in the pre-semester German intensive course is mandatory. For all other students this course is highly recommended.

Accommodations and Other Arrangements
Shared flats in a student dormitory with cooking facilities are available to exchange students. Single and double occupancy available. Rooms in student dorms are only available from either September 1 or February 1 onward. All dorms in Graz are co-ed.

The university offers an optional Buddy Program where an Austrian student will assist you in your first few weeks at the university.
