Abstract

The system of post-secondary education in Austria includes four types of institutions, and is divided into two sectors. The university sector includes eighteen universities, of which twelve are regular universities and six are universities of the arts. The non-university sector includes specialised programmes for applied studies: the Fachhochschulstudien, established in 1994-1995. Furthermore, there are the Akademien in the field of social work, teacher training, paramedical professions and religious education. In Austrian terms however, these Akademien are not part of the higher education system (Pechar, 1998).
