International Schools in Austria

This is the online directory with the main schools in Austria that offer an Education in English. The programmes vary from the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) programme, which includes PYP, MYP and Diploma to the British GCSE and GCE examination systems. All schools are required to satisfy the requirements of the Austrian national system.

International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate Organization’s Diploma Programme was created in 1968. It is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. The programme has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB diploma holders access to the world’s leading universities. The Diploma Programme’s grading system is criterion-referenced, which means that each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement. These are consistent from one examination session to the next and are applied equally to all schools.The IBO has shown, over the course of 30 years, that students are well prepared for university work. They are accepted by universities in more than 110 countries.

The IB Diploma is recognised as a foreign university entrance certificate provided it contains the following subjects:

1) Two languages (A1; A2 or B)
2) History or geography or economics from Group 3
3) Biology or physics or chemistry from Group 4
4) Mathematics (HL or SL) from Group 5
5) One subject from Group 6 (Arts)

Students must have reached at least a grade 3 in all subjects and a minimum of 24 points. IB certificates are not recognised as being sufficient for university entrance. Having German as one of the languages in the diploma is sufficient as proof of knowledge of German.

These guidelines represent a recommendation by the Federal Ministry; final decisions about university admission rest with the Vice-Chancellor of the university concerned.
