Studying in the European Higher Education Area
The European Higher Education Area offers many advantages for students. Since Austria’s accession to the EU, the number of participants in the ERASMUS student exchange programme has almost tripled. At the same time, academic attainments as well as academic degrees have become comparable through the introduction of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and the bachelor and master system throughout Europe.
Moreover, numerous cooperation programmes within the EU offer interesting new opportunities not only for students, but also for graduates and researchers.
