WUS Austria – One-Month Visits to Austria for Graduates
TU Graz is in the middle of the City of Graz, a lively university city which offers many opportunities. Graz is at the centre of Europe. Here, you’re only a stone’s throw away from exciting cities such as Vienna, Prague and Budapest. You’re at the mountains in less than an hour. And with Italy, Slovenia and Croatia close by, the Adriatic Sea isn’t far away.
A very good public transport network and popular cycle lanes contribute to the high quality of life in the City of Graz. Cultural activities are diverse and affordable. The influence of different cultures makes the city colourful and lively. And the different festivals, farmers’ markets and Christmas markets as well as the diverse cuisine mean that you will never get bored.
