International Office

The International Office (IO) is the service center of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (KUG) for all students and teachers who intend to travel abroad within the framework of international education programs. The IO is also the contact point for those who intend to study or teach as guests at our university. The office administratively supports, to the best of its capacities, all efforts to put existing and new international contacts on a good institutional footing.

The team of the IO

  • supports the implementation of mobility programs for students, teachers and employees of the KUG.
  • strengthens existing partnerships and helps maintain international networks.
  • advocates that the KUG is internationally visible and benefits from international cooperation at all levels.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us: international_office(at)!

Austria's second largest city is rich in history and at the same time a city full of modern life. It would not be an exaggeration to describe Graz as a city of contrasts: architectural witnesses from the city's more than 850-year history, like the country house, which the Landeszeughaus also owns It houses more than 30,000 weapons and armor, the cathedral and the mausoleum, Eggenberg Castle and the Graz Castle with the double spiral staircase create a unique harmony with the most modern buildings by internationally renowned architects and those of the Graz School, such as the Kunsthaus, Joanneumsviertel, MUMUTH or die Greenhouses in the botanical garden.
