Regular degree seeking international students

Welcome to Krems!

We're happy that you're interested in studying at IMC Krems.

Studying in the heart of Europe

Our university has a distinctive international flair: the students hail from over 50 nations and almost half of our courses are offered in English. 

The university town of Krems has a character all of its own. You'll be studying in the very heart of Europe at three unique locations: IMC Campus Krems, and the historic IMC Piaristengasse and IMC Gozzoburg sites. A truly unique combination.

There's also lots to discover in your free time. Spectacular mountain scenery, magnificent European cities, and the Wachau UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Region – all this and more are only a short train ride away from Krems.

With this in mind: Servus – and welcome to Krems!
