With oead4refugees the OeAD provides an overview for refugees who are living in Austria and want to study here or have their degree recognised in Austria. With this we want to support people who are in the middle of an asylum procedure or have already completed it to identify educational chances and take advantage of them.

We provide information about higher education to:

  • Recognised refugees and people who have been granted subsidiary protection
  • Asylum seekers and people who have been granted temporary leave to remain

Refugees can find general information about higher education in Austria, financial support options and housing for students. The latest information about courses and relevant news can be found on ourFacebook page. Contacts and information points can be found in our link collection.
