In 1995 it opened its doors to students and was first created as a competence center for scientific specialization that focused on the pressing challenges at the time designing study courses accordingly.
Danube University Krems provides extra-occupational university courses as Master programs, studies to qualify as “Academically Accredited Experts” as well as “Certified Programs”. Both PhD studies are connected to the main research areas of Danube University Krems.
Research at Danube University Krems is centered on contemporary and future challenges society faces. In a trans-disciplinary context we build bridges between basic research and practical application, between individual disciplines and – as befits a university for continuing education – most of all to society.
Basics and application in research are combined in the four research fields:
The Dual Career Service provides practical information about required formalities (arrival, registration), ranging from child care to postgraduate courses, and assists the partner of Dual Career couples in finding a suitable job. Furthermore, the service cooperates with the Dual Career Service Support of WWTF and other institutions such as AMS (State Employment Office) and the Regional School Inspectors for Lower Austria and Upper Austria.

The interactive methods of teaching motivate me to study better and invest more time and energy to learning and researching. Besides, gaining knowledge based both on practice and theory, I could start my little business and decide what I want to study next in my master degree.
everything was good regarding theortical part of the study
The university is really great. During my studies I learned really a lot in the European and domestic law. All the readers was recognized and highly motivated. Particularly the possibility to join in their research was a great experience! Unfortunately the university has very limited access to continuing PhD studies.
