What our graduates say

Combining job and training

"Since I didn't want to give up my job, I was looking for further education that was tailored to my needs as a working person. FH Kärnten enabled me to combine job and education and that convinced me. In addition, UAS Carinthia was also recommended to me in advance by former graduates and colleagues."
