First Generation

Ready for University!

The First Generation Program at the University of Vienna

You are a student and one year away from your Matura? Are you thinking about studying at the University of Vienna? No one in your family has ever studied at an Austrian university? Then sign up for the First Generation Program of the University of Vienna!

In workshop units you will get to know different fields of study and processes and meet students. Together we will discuss all your questions. This way you will be well prepared for a new phase in your life!

What has happened so far?

We started the pilot project in 2021 with the Gymnasium Augarten and the Bildungsgrätzl Wallenstein 2.0. 35 students* participated in the workshops and will start their studies in fall 2022. A review of the program can be found here (german only).

Programme 2022

In 2022, the project will be adapted and expanded in cooperation with the University of Vienna’s Teaching Affairs and Study Services Department and the Wiener Bildungsgrätzl.

For you there will again be exciting workshops and many tips that are useful for both the selection of studies and the start of studies.

This is what you can expect in 2022:

  • 3 workshop afternoons
  • Duration per workshop: 3 hours
  • Locations: University of Vienna and Dock
  • Information sheets with further links
  • Meeting with students

The exact program and all workshop days will be published soon.
