Why Austria? Why Vienna?

With its location in the heart of Europe, Austria offers magnificent landscapes, cultural diversity and an attractive business and innovation location. The federal capital Vienna is even considered the city with the highest quality of life worldwide. However, Vienna also offers space for talent as an educational location and an ecosystem that creates perspectives and enables personal development.

42 Vienna offers a unique tech education for coding talents. The programming school stands for open access and an innovative educational model - without teachers, without books and without fees. Campus 42 Vienna has been offering space for development and networking since October 2022 and will grow to around 500 students in the next three years. Further locations in Lower Austria (Amstetten) and Upper Austria (Wels) are being planned.

Studying in Amstetten and Wels

After Vienna we are planning to establish further campus locations in Amstetten and Wels. A fully-fledged 42 location requires not only the appropriate infrastructure but also sufficient students on site to be able to implement the learning concept. This requires sufficient time for preparation. However, we already want to offer interested 42 students from these regions the opportunity to complete parts of their studies in so-called “42 Project Spaces”. This means that students do not have to move to Vienna, or only temporarily. This is particularly attractive if you are employed and do not want to give up your environment or your current housing.

What does this mean in practice:
