The Location:

St. Poelten, Austria’s oldest city and youngest regional capital, a city for retail and industry with a Baroque city centre, lies to the south of the Danube, in the heart of Lower Austria [
Niederoester­reich]. Sit­uated 60 km to the west of Vienna in Austria’s oldest baroque town, St. Pölten UAS was founded in 1996 and is an expanding insti­tution of higher edu­cation with cur­rently 2,200 enrolled stu­dents. The provincial capital of Lower Austria with 50,000 inhab­i­tants com­bines his­torical and con­tem­porary archi­tecture, apart from offering numerous cul­tural events throughout the year. St. Pölten is cen­trally located, within easy reach of a whole variety of attrac­tions. Within an hour of our city you can enjoy the urban life of Vienna, the crisp pleasure of skiing and snow­boarding resorts, the refreshment of beau­tiful lakes and forests, the culinary delights of the nearby wine growing regions and his­torical sites such as the monastery in Melk.

Stu­dents who are native German speakers are not required to attend the course on German Lan­guage and Aus­trian Culture. Instead they are asked to choose one or more elec­tives (worth 3 ECTS credits) in the fields of Media Tech­nology or Media Production.
