The JKU not only provides education for students, but for apprentices as well. Vocational apprentice training has been a long-standing tradition at Upper Austria's largest educational institution for teaching and research: Since 1985, approximately 140 young adults have successfully completed an apprenticeship at the JKU.
Here at the JKU, you can choose to complete an apprenticeship in one of 10 different areas and let your talents shine. An apprenticeship at the JKU is special in that in addition to learning on-site and mandatory attendance at a vocational school, there is a rotation system that allows you to spend several weeks at - and learning about - other departments and work areas at the JKU. You can also take internal training classes to enhance your professional skills, such as a class on telephone skills, social media, personality training, communication skills, computer classes, or language courses in English.
You could earn a bonus in recognition of outstanding achievements at a vocational school and for those who choose to complete the apprenticeship/Matura program, we provide support by giving you special leave and a bonus for doing well on the final apprenticeship examinations. One of the many perks you'll find here includes an official Welcome Day, taking part in targeted team-building measures, and being eligible to receive a discount for meals at the university cafeteria. Get to know your co-workers by having lunch together with them and soon you will quickly feel at home and like part of our team!
You are talented and motivated and we have a program that caters to you and your interests? Completing an apprenticeship at the JKU means you will be well prepared for any future career.
