Embrace the Alps and Academia: Unforgettable Study Abroad in Austria

Nestled in the heart of Central Europe, Austria boasts a world-class education system that's surprisingly affordable and accessible for international students. Here at Rio Overseas, we believe Austria's unique blend of academic excellence, cultural richness, and stunning scenery creates an unparalleled study abroad experience.

  • Cutting-edge programs: Delve into a variety of programs taught in English, from engineering and medicine to music and business. Whether you're passionate about artificial intelligence or yearn to master the art of yodeling (jodeln), Austria has a program to ignite your academic curiosity.

  • Specialized institutions: For a focused learning experience, explore specialized universities like the Vienna University of Technology or the Salzburg University of the Arts.

Affordable Excellence: Education Without Breaking the Bank

  • Public transportation discounts: Student discounts on public transportation allow you to explore Austria's diverse regions and experience the best of the country.

  • Scholarships and financial aid: Several scholarships and financial aid options are available for international students, making studying in Austria even more attractive.

Beyond the Lecture Hall: A Cultural Tapestry Awaits

  • Adventure in the Alps: Austria is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Hike through breathtaking mountain trails, go skiing in winter wonderlands, or cycle along idyllic lakes.

  • Coffeehouse culture: Unwind in a traditional Viennese coffeehouse, savour a slice of Sachertorte, and soak up the intellectual and artistic atmosphere.

  • Vibrant cities and charming towns: Austria offers a unique blend of urban sophistication and small-town charm. Explore bustling Vienna, marvel at the beauty of Salzburg, or discover the hidden gems of Innsbruck.

Gain Valuable Work Experience and Build Your Future

  • Post-study work visa:  There is no post study work visa. After graduation, students renew your residence permit "Students" for a period of twelve months for the purpose of searching for employment, or starting a business provided that you fulfil the general requirements under Austrian settlement and residence law (such as sufficient means of subsistence, health insurance coverage etc.)

  • Gateway to Europe: Austria's central location makes it a perfect base for exploring Europe. Schengen visa privileges allow you to travel freely across 26 European countries during breaks and after graduation.
