As a public university for continuing education, it works with its expertise in teaching and research to meet societal challenges and aligns its study programme accordingly.

With around 8,000 students from around 85 countries, Danube University Krems combines many years of experience in academic continuing education with innovation and the highest quality standards in research and teaching.
One of the strengths of the University for Continuing Education Krems is its application-oriented research with a high degree of transdisciplinarity.
