Study Abroad in Austria at Salzburg College

Video and Photos


Salzburg College is a small, private institution specialized in offering quality international education programs in the US-American academic tradition. At Salzburg College classroom work, field study, and academic travel complement one another. All classes are taught in English, mostly by European professors, and you receive regular US credit for your academic work.
Our facilities are located in the KunstQuartier (ArtQuarter) in the heart of Salzburg's old town. The close vicinity to public, educational and cultural institutions allows for easy integration of classroom study and on-site experience.

You can choose between living in an Austrian home or staying in a carefully selected university dormitory. Becoming part of an Austrian family or joining Austrian students allows you to learn to understand Austrian customs and values first hand- one of the most rewarding aspects of studying at Salzburg College.

A great vacation

If you are looking for an academically rich program and to connect with students from Austria, this is not the program for you. This is a program that allows you to travel and have fun with your American counterparts. It is a very small group, and if you do not get along, have fun because there are only a small number of classes and you will all be together.

Response from Salzburg College

I’m sorry you were not able to fully enjoy your semester here in Salzburg. Naturally, as with many things in life, studying abroad is a very personal experience. Salzburg College has been offering study abroad programs for over 40 years and we have welcomed thousands of students. While one student might really thrive in our more personal
setting and enjoy the intimacy, another might not see expectations met. We thank you for your honest feedback and promise that we will continue working on providing all our students with the best possible study abroad experience.

A perfect place to experience Europe.

Salzburg and Austria have such a rich and distinct history. It's in a prime location - literally in the heart of Europe - to explore the land many cultures that have existed there. It's a place of profound beauty and Salzburg College does an excellent job immersing you into the culture and teaching you what you want to learn. The staff are friendly and fun-loving and the people are amazing.

How can this program be improved?
I would have liked to have a roommate to live with me in my host home.
