Press release: 12.313-153/20

29.8% of women aged 18 to 25 studied at post-secondary institutions in the winter semester 2019/20

Vienna, 2020-09-02 – In the winter semester 2019/20, 376 050 students attended Austrian public universities, universities of applied sciences, university colleges of teacher education and private universities, according to Statistics Austria. Compared to the previous year, this corresponds to a slight decrease of 0.2%. Considering the significantly stronger decline in the 18-to-25-year-old population by 2.3% from 2019 to 2020, however, the development in the number of students of post-secondary institutions is an expression of a continuously rising student quota. Overall, the student quota in this age group was 24.7%, among women even 29.8%.
