World University Service (WUS) Austria is a politically independent, non-governmental organization committed to the promotion of the human right to education on the basis of academic freedom and university autonomy. Since its establishment in Graz in 1983, WUS Austria has been working on the promotion of this aim all over the world. During its over 35 years of existence WUS Austria has positioned itself as one of the most important operative partners for enhancing knowledge transfer and comparability in Higher Education between EU and non-EU countries. WUS Austria provides operative and technical support and consultancy for a faster, more efficient implementation of the Bologna system and global trends in the Higher Education sector.  


OUR MISSION: We believe that the right to education includes not only the right to access and complete education but also the right to QUALITY EDUCATION. We therefore aim at increasing the quality of higher education in accordance with European and international standards in order to establish solid and sustainable structures for a strong role of universities in society.
