Studyportals International Student Satisfaction Awards 2016 – Austria


In 2016, many students have reviewed their experiences of studying abroad. Based on these reviews, Studyportals has created the International Student Satisfaction Awards. These awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe.

Many international students following programs in Austria have shared their experience this year. A total of 203 students left a review of their experience in Austria, with an overall satisfaction grade of 8.9, ranking 10th in this year’s award session! 33 different schools have been reviewed, of which 3 universities are awarded. A university is eligible for an award when having an average student satisfaction of at least 8 out of 10 based on a minimum of 20 reviews.

Unlike university rankings, Studyportals’ International Student Satisfaction Awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe. We created three award categories to distinguish between levels of satisfaction:

  • Award for Very Good International Student Satisfaction: between 8.0-9.0 out of 10;
  • Award for Excellent International Student Satisfaction: between 9.0 and 9.5 out of 10;
  • Award for Outstanding International Student Satisfaction: at least 9.5 out of 10.

3 Austrian universities received an award:

Reviews Score Award
Vienna University of Technology 23 9+ Excellent
Karl-Franzens University of Graz 23 9+ Excellent
University of Vienna 38 8+ Very good

What international students say about studying in Austria:

Austria is the perfect country to meet new people, travel and learn about other cultures! I really had the best time there and recommended it already to my course mates.
