The Educational System of Austria. Education Around the World.
Bodenman, Paul S.
This publication examines education at all levels in Austria. Topics discussed include the historical background of the basic system; preschool education; elementary, secondary, and higher education; special education; vocational and technical education; guidance services; teacher education; adult education; educational research; and recent developments and trends. A map, chart, and many tables are also included in the publication. The typical structure of the Austrian education system consists of the preschool level; the four-year elementary level; the eight- or nine-year secondary level (usually divided into a four-year lower and a four- or five-year upper cycle); and the higher education level. Higher education consists primarily of 12 universities, all of which are national institutions, and six colleges of fine arts that have university rank. The educational system is rounded out by an extensive adult education program that offers opportunities for advancement in professional, cultural, and academic areas. (Author/RM)
