Studying at 55+
The University of Salzburg offers the UNI 55 PLUS Program, in which people over 55 years old can study. Even if they don’t have a graduation degree. After the program, there is therefore no academic degree. You can decide for yourself how many courses you will attend per semester. You also do not have to complete the study with an examination.
YOU HAVE AN ACADEMIC TITLE FROM YOUR COUNTRY. WHERE CAN YOU HAVE IT RECOGNISED?
If foreign degrees have been completed, they can be recognised in Austria. Thus, they are equated with Austrian studies. The Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy is responsible for this. There is an online application system at www.aais.at
WHAT IS THE KNOWLEDGE CITY OF SALZBURG?
The Knowledge City is the joint appearance of all knowledge facilities in the City of Salzburg. And in total, there are over 500 institutions. Here, knowledge is generated, mediated and further enhanced.
Some places of knowledge:

Further education in the City Library in Lehen
The City Library is more than just a book rental. It offers around 200,000 different media – including movies, music, audio-books, notes and console games. But it also hosts events and houses over 5,000 newspapers from all over the world. The book-bus of the City Library, a driving library, drives around the whole city four days a week.
WHERE CAN YOU TAKE A LANGUAGE COURSE IN SALZBURG?
Anyone who wants to practise German and use the language can participate in the conversation course “talking to each other“.
