TU Graz/ Studying and Teaching/ Teaching at TU Graz/


TU Graz strives to offer the highest international level of education in German and English. Students and teaching staff are placed at the center of the strategic development plan; the university is aware of its educational mission to society and identifies specific focal points.

Continuous development of the quality of teaching and learning is the cornerstone of excellent research.

Strategic Fields of Action

Additional strategic fields of action, which have various effects during different life stages, are derived based on the Student Lifecycle:

  • Positioning TU Graz as an excellent educational institution
  • STEM funding
  • Internationalization and diversification
  • Guided Start and Graduation Support
  • Motivational teaching and learning environment
  • Final phase of the study programme
  • Life Long Learning
  • Strengthening the network of alumni members

In addition to identifying strategic fields of action, the university strengthens the feedback culture, consistently implements measures and states its commitment to sustainability to support education. Real projects are being carried out and measures are being applied in these fields of action to strengthen teaching at TU Graz.

The phases describe different life stages and the associated needs of stakeholders in higher education. For this reason, each of the phases is based on a specific field of action.

The Student Lifecycle

The TU Graz strategy of academic affairs is based on a holistic approach and applies to the entire Student Lifecycle.

The university assures the holistic effectiveness of their measures for education by accepting a responsibility to provide education over all stages of life, rather than only focusing on a specific time period. This approach contributes to lifelong learning as the students pursue their educational goals, moving along a path that takes them from the status of interested, prospective student to alumni member.
