The University was founded in 1585 by Archduke Karl II and re-established as a university institution in 1827 by Emperor Franz I, thus the name KarI-Franzens Universität'.

One of the oldest universities in Central Europe, Graz combines five centuries of scholarly tradition with a forward looking commitment to teaching and research. The university houses ninety-five academic departments and fifteen university clinics -vital intellectual centers that enjoy an international reputation and which in turn are generally subdivided into departments and working groups. Furthermore, there are eight university facilities for special tasks. Currently the university has around 30,000 students and 3,000 employees.

Graz is the second largest city in Austria (pop. 250,000) and has a student population of about 50,000 (the majority of which - over 30,000 - study at Karl-Franzens-University). Graz offers the atmosphere and first class facilities of a vibrant modern city (opera, theatres, cultural festivals, lively pub-scene ...) with the charm and architectural beauty of a historic town. The city center is one of the best-preserved in Central Europe and only a 10 minute walk away from the university. Graz is a clean, safe and beautiful city, which is small enough to feel at home, but large enough to provide students with plenty of entertainment during study breaks.
