1. Take a test to determine your preferred field of study
Whether you choose a public university or a teaching college, a polytechnic or a private university, your decision-making process should not only depend on interests and preferences but also on future career opportunities and financial aspects. There are several tests which analyse your strengths and weaknesses and suggest fields of study.
- Instructive open days
In case you’re uncertain about your decision, you can attend open days at different colleges. On the platform ’studieren probieren’ of the ÖH (Austrian Students’ Association) you can find the events calendar. During an open day, a student of your desired field accompanies you to a selected course and answers all your questions. This allows you to get a good insight into student life at a specific location.
