EDUCATION IN SALZBURG

The province of Salzburg is a centre of education and training. The provincial capital Salzburg can look back on a centuries-old tradition as a university city. In 1622 the university was opened in a ceremony by its founder Prince-archbishop Paris Lodron, whose name it still bears nowadays. However, it was not until 1962 that it was re-opened as a university with full status after years of changeable fortunes and a struggle lasting over 150 years. The four faculties – natural sciences, the humanities, theology and law are divided into about 70 institutes. Don’t forget the Mozarteum and beginning in 2003 the Private Medical University.
