The Gateway to the best FREE Education in Europe
he St. Stephen’s College Vienna is an Austrian preparatory center, which prepares international students language and subjects wise for a public Austrian University. We assist and guide students on their way to admission and provide visa support service. The degree programmes are offered by the Austrian universities themselves.
Due to the differences in educational standards, international students must learn the German language and pass supplementary exams before they can start studies at an Austrian university as an ordinary student. St. Stephen’s provides students with the language and pre-university training programmes. Students seeking direct university admission, have a possibility to choose the University Admission service provided by the College or contact a chosen university directly for further information.
