Learn about the relationships between man, society and the environment while studying with Austrian and international students at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna.

The capital city of Vienna is an exciting combination of the royal-imperial flair of the past with the latest modern trends. Enjoy the tradition of art and culture as well as the many outdoor recreational opportunities in the city's parks, woods or along the Danube river.
