Austrian Summer Schools 2008

Hannes Richter


For those interested in pursuing summer studies in Austria, whether it be learning German or attending academic lectures on Europe viewed through different fields such as Law, Politics, History, Economics, Art, Music, etc., Austrian summer schools offer a diverse program for every need.

Academic programs include the International Summer Program at the University of Vienna, now in its 60th year, and the University of New Orleans International Summer School at the Leopold Franzens-University in Innsbruck, which is open to all students of accredited U.S. universities and is the largest U.S. program of its kind.

At the same time, apart from academics, students can enjoy the picturesque alpine landscape and outdoors and breathe in the cultural splendor of Austria’s imperial cities. From modern arts and the world-famous Salzburg Music Festival to open-air cinemas and mild evenings in beer gardens, Austria offers an interesting variety of things to do as a complement to one's studies. It becomes an experience, having the rest and the best of Europe at your fingertips and within easy reach by plane or via the country’s rail system. Austrian Information provides the following list of links with useful information on programs for 2008.
