Overview

The University of Applied Arts Vienna is home to about 2.000 students, many of whom come from other countries, both within Europe and abroad. The broad spectrum of artistic disciplines, complemented by a large number of scientific subjects, certainly enriches the special atmosphere that prevails at the »Angewandte«. The concept of the university as a place for critical reflection upon one’s personal thought and action, a place where questions are more important than patent solutions - this idea flourishes at the Angewandte. Studies are not limited to the mere conveyance of artistic techniques and skills. Rather, the development of individual artistic creativity and critical reflection upon one’s work on the basis of theories and concepts are our foremost priorities. Students learn and experience art not just as an end in itself, but fundamentally as a departure point and medium for communication, where the analysis of the significance and effects art has in society play an important role. Encouraging the development of creative visions and facilitating artistic experiments, in tandem with a commitment to technical excellence and conceptual brilliance, are the basic elements of the quality standard the Angewandte sets for both teachers and students alike.
