The Salzburg University of Education Stefan Zweig (PH Salzburg) combines professional initial teacher training, in-service training and continuing education of teachers with research on relevant educational needs for the future of society. Personal and social qualifications are assessed to the same extent as methodology and profound knowledge. The attached training schools enable students to put theoretical know-how into practice. A European network of contracts with 70 partner institutions contributes to the attractiveness of the PH Salzburg Stefan Zweig and supports mobility for teachers and students alike. They are encouraged to take part in national and international development and research projects, thus becoming part of a European educational and social community.

The inclusive university understands itself as a learning organisation. "All equal – all different"
