The great aim of education is not knowledge, but action.” This dictum of the English philosopher Herbert Spencer might aptly describe the work of the University of Liechtenstein: achieving academic excellence by creating a living symbiosis of quality teaching and research, of theory and practice.


The University of Liechtenstein has developed steadily, and is now an internationally renowned centre of higher education. As such, it offers attractive opportunities for study in the heart of Europe. Our activities focus on imparting knowledge relevant to life, and on exciting, research-led innovation, and we are organized accordingly. Anonymity and the ivory-tower mentality are concepts alien to the University of Liechtenstein. People know each other personally on campus. Throughout their courses, our students receive committed personal support and attention. The pleasant campus atmosphere, human interaction and unique location in the Principality of Liechtenstein all contribute to our outstanding teaching and research. This is a place where personalities blossom.

We are proud to be able to offer our students, researchers and lecturers such an environment, which is unique in many ways. But the best way to find out about genuine career prospects based on courses at the University of Liechtenstein is to visit us. We will be delighted to provide advice and support.

The campus of the University of Liechtenstein situated above Vaduz is a special place. Open spaces. Light. Airy. Views soaring high above everyday life. A hundred years ago a textile factory came into being at this location. Today it is a factory for thinkers.
