About the University

Pioneering, open-minded, appreciative: that’s what we embody as a university of applied sciences.

International. Entirely.

International students. Guest lecturers from all over the world. A huge range of degree programmes taught in English. At our university, you will study in a unique international environment. Learn new languages, get to know different cultures and make contacts with people from across the globe. You’ll quickly figure out that ‘internationalisation’ and ‘internationalisation at home’ are more than just buzzwords at IMC Krems. They are part of everything we do – day in, day out.

An exceptional blend: stylish architecture meets historic treasures, great facilities and the latest technology

You’ll be spending a lot of time with us, so we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. Our students love the modern facilities at the university. On the main campus they study in light-filled rooms with views of the surrounding vineyards. At our Piaristengasse campus and Gozzoburg you’ll be studying in historic, medieval rooms and halls. Combined with top-quality facilities, state-of-the-art technology and international flair, they create a unique atmosphere in a great central location.

About the Location

You might hear some people say Krems is an enchanting, but small town. But thanks to its beautiful location on the Danube, it’s a hotspot for thousands of tourists who visit the historic old town every year. It’s also close to Austria's capital, Vienna. Trains run every hour and the city’s famous sights and landmarks are just an hour away.
