The University of Applied Sciences (UAS) Burgenland (German: Fachhochschule - FH) is a state-approved university of applied sciences. Almost 6,500 graduates in good positions and an employment rate of around 98% prove the high quality of training at the university.
Yes, at the beginning of your studies you will also be registered as an extraordinary student of the FH Burgenland and will receive confirmation of enrolment and ID.
There are two types of studies: ordinary (consecutive) and extraordinary (non-consecutive). Classical, orderly studies are consecutive and thus build on each other. In order to do a consecutive master’s degree, you must have completed the corresponding bachelor’s degree. Our courses are non-consecutive studies, even if they are often taken following a bachelor's degree.
Extraordinary, non-consecutive studies are regarded as continuing education courses in accordance with § 9 FHStG, as amended. Our master studies are continuing education masters. Correctly, they are also called courses and not studies.
There are several admission requirements. Among others, you can also complete the course with professional experience and university entrance qualification, but without pre-study. Courses serve the practical further training. Therefore, the legislator regulated the admission in such a way. As a rule, continuing education courses are therefore associated with less workload, but offer more practical relevance and are more flexible, compact and service-oriented.
Yes, based on the findings of developers in Germany and Austria, with a strong focus on market needs. There are similar contents partly also elsewhere, but not the same ones, not in this target-oriented package and not in this form of holding or organization. The studies themselves are therefore new, but not the people behind them, who have many years of experience in this segment in Germany and Austria - both in communication practice and in academic teaching.
When selecting tutors, authors and teachers, we attach great importance to relevant scientific and/or practice oriented as well as didactic qualifications and training. So, you don't learn alone, we are there for you and focus on personal exchange.
They are very topical. The course is constantly being further developed and provided with new content, including current case videos from practitioners, current tasks of the same in the modules, new scientific findings in the scripts and use cases on the pulse of time as well as current keynotes on the online platform.
Unfortunately not. In such a compact study, the contents and their special preparation are a key value. Moreover, the isolated detachment from the context of our learning platform would also reduce the learning success. Since the contents are embedded multimedia, there are self-tests or checkups, online tutorials, etc.
