You're new in Vienna, have completed your mandatory school education, and want to jump straight into the next phase – be it high school (Gymnasium), technical school (HTL), business school (HAK), or aiming for an apprenticeship to quickly learn a secure and promising profession. Time to make moves and shape your future!

Then you're in the right place with Jugendcollege StartWien!

We support you in learning German quickly, prepare you well and quickly for school or an apprenticeship, and together, we search and find a spot for you in a secondary school or a suitable apprenticeship!!

Jugendcollege is structured in modules – you only learn what you need and have lessons until 3 p.m. at the latest. You get to know other young people and are part of a community – joint activities, excursions and trips are also part of the program!

If we have found you a school or an apprenticeship, we are still there for you! Is there a test coming up? The German homework is difficult? With our Lernhilfe, we support you and help you continue your path successfully! Do you have problems, stress with your trainer or questions? Then you can come to our consultation up to 6 months after completing Jugendcollege!
