10 good reasons to study at IMC Krems

Pioneering, open-minded, appreciative. That's what we stand for as a university of applied sciences.

What makes us special? We are more than happy to tell you about the aspects of our university, which we are especially proud of.

Plenty of opportunities to apply your knowledge

All of our degree programmes have a strong practical focus. This means that you can apply the theory and tools you learn about straight away once you start working – something that your future employer will also really appreciate. You start putting your knowledge into practice during your degree by working on real projects. And at the same time you can build up a valuable network of professional contacts.

The personal touch

People get to know each other at our university. Students progress through their degrees together with their classmates. This makes for a great experience and benefits everyone in several ways. Your lecturers will get to know you personally too, and will support you throughout your time with us. You study as a member of a class and don’t just feel like one of the crowd.

International through and through

International students. Guest lecturers from all over the world. A range of degree programmes taught in English. And all this in Krems, in the heart of Lower Austria. At our university you’ll study in a unique international environment. Learn new languages, get to know different cultures and make contacts with people from across the globe.

Study abroad made simple

A semester abroad is a tremendously enriching experience. You acquire know-how, gain new perspectives and build contacts. Our students often make new friends from all over the world, too. We make it as simple as we can for you to spend a semester abroad at one of our 137 partner universities. Take advantage of our international network. We provide all the help you need before, during and after your stay abroad.

Professional experience? All part of the degree!

Experience is crucial to enhancing your job prospects. That’s why we make sure you obtain a wealth of experience during your degree programme. Internships are a core element of our full-time programmes, so you can gain practical experience and build contacts. And you can also take a step towards an international career by doing your internship abroad.

All-round support

It goes without saying that we provide all the support you need to get the most out of your lectures. But we also like to go the extra mile with services such as language courses, careers advice and help with starting a business. Our experts have a wealth of experience and contacts that you can benefit from.

Finding a job? It’s almost in the bag.

A degree from our university opens a lot of doors. Employers know about the benefits of an IMC Krems education. We’re especially proud of our graduate employment rate of 98%. Many of our students find a job or take the step up the career ladder they were aiming for soon after graduating.

Always in touch – the IMC Alumni Network

Even after graduating we make it easy to keep in touch with your classmates and the university. The IMC Alumni Network provides you with career information and organises regular get togethers in Austria and abroad. The aim is to help you expand your network of contacts – which is why Alumni Services and Career Services work together closely.

An exceptional blend: stylish architecture, 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. And our historic locations in the old town are equipped with the latest technology.
