For foreigners, the cost of education is fixed and is 761 USD per year. On the official website of the university, you will find all the relevant information about tuition fees and scholarships.

Bachelor degree at UASUA
In order to enter a bachelor's program, applicants must successfully pass the entrance exams.
The campus of UASUA is located in Wels. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. Students have access to the extensive scientific library of the university. The collection of scientific papers helps them in conducting research. Not only locals study at UASUA, but also students from other countries. This is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the culture of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
