Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find the answers to some of the questions we frequently receive in regards to an apprenticeship at the JKU:

What are the wages for an apprentice?

1st apprenticeship year: € 535.90
2nd apprenticeship year: € 705.70
3rd apprenticeship year: € 899.70

In addition, 4x annually (March 15, June 15, September 15, November 15) there is a special payment in the amount of half of the apprentice's wages (for the corresponding payment period).

How many hours a week do I work and what is the working schedule?
You will work full-time (40 hrs/week, meaning 8 hours a day, including a 30-minute lunch break) and you will get 5 weeks of vacation per year.

When do I start going to vocational school?
You will receive an invitation to the vocation schools (blocked) a few weeks before the vocational school term. The coordinator for the apprenticeship program will inform you and your instructor accordingly.
The costs for necessary* boarding during the time you attend vocation school will be taken over by the university while retaining the payment from the apprentice's wages. (*Boarding facilities for vocational schools not located in Linz)
