Incoming Students

Welcome to Kufstein University of Applied Sciences

Dear students,

as you know, learning is a journey to a new world, an adventure, an expedition. 
Although you have to do the walking part yourself, the FH Kufstein Tirol University of Applied Sciences accompanies its students on this expedition and helps them to reach the highest summits.

We are happy to welcome you at the Fachhochschule Kufstein Tirol – University of Applied Sciences. After months of preparation you finally made it to Austria and the team of the International Relations Office (IRO) wants to help you to get started. That’s why we created this study guide in order to help you with the most important questions during your life abroad e.g. accommodation, daily life, student facilities, housing, grading, etc.

You will be integrated in an international environment, surrounded from Austrian and foreign students and faculties. It will not only be one of the most exciting experiences in your life - a new language, a new culture and a different way of life, but also a lifelong memory of a time full of new skills, insights and friendships.

Enjoy your journey!

And just in case, the IRO will assist you in any matter, so please do not hesitate to contact us.

Fact Sheet


International Program

The FH Kufstein Tirol offers its exchange students a special International Program (IP). The IP is open to all students from our partner universities just as our partner institutions welcome the students from the FH Kufstein when they do their compulsory study-abroad semester.

The IP offers a range of courses, all of them held exclusively in English. The curriculum consists of courses designed specifically for the exchange students as well as selected courses from the bachelor and master degree programs of the FH Kufstein. In the context of the latter, incoming exchange students join our regular students, which ensures they are well-integrated in the learning environment at the FH Kufstein.

The courses in the IP are taught by professors of the FH Kufstein as well as by visiting professors from around the globe. The curriculum covers the subject areas of “International Marketing”, “Management”, and “Finance” and "Technology", which are all an integral part of the internationally oriented study program.

In order to give the incoming exchange students some insights into Austrian history and culture, the International Relations Office (IRO) regularly offers courses such as “Austrian Culture & History” and “German Language”. These courses are a great stepping stone for our guests on their way to exploring Kufstein, its surroundings, and the rest of Austria.

Exchange students and visiting professors alike can expect to receive from the IRO comprehensive support and consultation in all matters concerning the International Program and their stay in Austria.
