Moves to establish a standardised European Higher Education Area have led to the introduction of a two-cycle degree system across Europe. Bachelor’s degree programmes generally comprise 180 to 240 ECTS points and Master’s degree programmes 90 to 120 ECTS points – regardless of whether the course is at a university or a university of applied sciences.


As a university of applied sciences we carry out regional and cross-border research projects for and in collaboration with partners. We promote sustainable concepts, combining creative impetus with a solution and market-oriented approach for the benefit of society. Our university is committed to driving innovation in Styria and beyond.


Internships, courses geared to the job market and a practical focus make it easier for graduates to enter the professional world. Only an average of 2% of the approx. 10,000 graduates of FH JOANNEUM are registered as unemployed. Universities of applied sciences offer a wide range of continuing education courses for people in employment seeking further specialist or personal training.

The criteria governing the choice between a university of applied sciences and a university are down to the individual and where the required education can be completed. Professional training in the healthcare sector (midwifery, physiotherapy or speech therapy) is offered only by universities of applied sciences.
