The Anton Bruckner University is one of five Austrian Universities for Music, Drama and Dance, and one of four universities in Linz, the European Capital of Culture 2009. 850 students from all parts of the world study here. They are taught by 200 Professors and teaching staff, who are internationally recognised artists, academics and teachers.

The cultural landscape of Upper Austria sets an example in music education all over Europe. The Upper Austrian Provincial Government gives particular support to artistic education, which is why – compared with similar institutions – tuition fees here are extremely moderate.

Culture characterises Upper Austria - a discussion process about our cultural model has developed a framework for future targets in cultural policy. We have taken the opportunity to be involved in this debate.

We invite you to build a comprehensive picture of our house, our courses and activities from this home page.
