An institution with a strong international profile, it concentrates on the core activities of research and education at 6 faculties (Arts & Humanities, Law, Social and Economic Sciences, Theology, Natural Sciences and Environmental and Regional Sciences and Education). Close ties with almost 500 universities world-wide form the basis for the mobility of students, faculty and staff and numerous joint projects in teaching and research as well as organizational and curriculum development. The university has developed profound experience in working together with international partners in a variety of projects and programs, such as Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Lifelong Learning Programmes [LLP], etc. for many of which the University of Graz also acts as the coordinator. Guest professors and guest researchers contribute significantly to the internationalization of our institution.
