We have a long established relationship with Austria - our first known Austrian graduate was Marcus Maximilian Schmidl who graduated in Medicine in 1861. Since then we have welcomed many Austrian students, with graduates working in industry, technology and education, amongst many others. With more world-class universities per head of population than anywhere else, you should consider joining the 20 Austrian students who commence study in Scotland at the University of Glasgow every year.
