International spirit at IMC Krems

Azerbaijan, Cameroon, USA: Students at IMC Krems come from a total of 46 countries. Approximately one fifth of all new students have a foreign passport. A quota that speaks for the quality of the IMC Krems. All students benefit from the international university flair in Krems. Also thanks to the language of instruction English: Approximately half of the study courses are offered exclusively in English, the others in a combination of German and English. This is an important experience that many students will complement with a semester abroad at one of the more than 140 partner universities.

In addition, 60 incoming exchange students have recently arrived in Krems and will study for one or two semesters at IMC Krems. "Our international students will decisively influence, energise and enrich the everyday study life at the IMC FH Krems", emphasises Martin Waiguny, Chair of the Academic Board, proudly.

Ulrike Prommer, CEO, explains: "The good reputation precedes us in all parts of the world: I see it as extraordinary confirmation for IMC Krems that so many international students apply for our university. I wish everyone much success in the new academic year and a good time in our beautiful city of Krems".

Kick-off for our Informatics bachelor degree programme

The academic year 2019/2020 will start with a special premiere: 35 students will start their bachelor studies in Informatics. With this new English-language course, the university of applied sciences is responding to the growing demand for computer scientists. Students benefit from excellent job prospects - thanks to the practical education. They acquire basic theoretical knowledge and the necessary tools. A successful mixture, which is practiced in all programmes at IMC FH Krems. There are good reasons why the employment rate of IMC graduates is a high 98%.

All information in a compact package: The IMC Induction Week

Internationality and practical relevance are two of many strengths of IMC Krems. The special service is also one of them. First-year students are welcomed with the Induction Week, where all administrative and study-related questions are answered. At the Welcome Fair, the students get to know the service points of the university of applied sciences and get valuable tips for their everyday life in the university town of Krems.

We celebrate the 25th anniversary of IMC Krems
