Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg) is a relatively small university; this fosters a culture of open doors and short communication routes.
The staff-to-student ratio is just 1:12 and thus very good, ensuring that students receive individual and personal attention throughout the course of their studies. In addition to highly qualified lecturers from FH Vorarlberg, students also encounter teachers from top companies in each of the different sectors. The degree programmes are organised by years to guarantee clear timeframes and open structure. The programmes themselves are versatile and diversified: in addition to lectures and seminars, students are involved in projects and team work, excursions, learning games and exercises that make up the curriculum. FH Vorarlberg is defined by a strong focus on research; this benefits students too, who can experience that study and research are closely linked.
