Brief information about KUG

Regional Tasks - International Orientation

More than 50 percent of our students are from abroad. They come from approximately 70 different countries and support an intercultural diversity and, as a result, a creative climate at KUG. The geographical location of KUG combines Austrian tradition in music and performing arts with the creative potential of Eastern and South Eastern Europe. In Graz, the capital of Styria and the second largest city in Austria, which is rich in tradition and modern at the same moment, students can enjoy all benefits of students´ life with its many cultural offers. On the other hand, you will discover the most beautiful surprises where you do not expect them: In the middle of nature, located between Vienna and Graz, you can find the location of Oberschützen - an ideal place for intensive studying and practicing, far from hectic pace and noise.
