ÖH-FH Kärnten

Welcome to the homepage of the Students' Union of the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences (ÖH FH Kärnten for short). We represent the interests of all students and course participants at the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences. 

The goal of the HochschülerInnenschaft is to achieve a continuous improvement of the study conditions. For this purpose we offer services around studying.

Our site is still under construction. If you have any ideas, suggestions or proposals for improvement, just write us an e-mail 😊


      Our history 


      The student union at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences was founded in 2009 as KFAST (Carinthian Student Representation) after a change in the law regarding universities of applied sciences.

      For the first few years we were integrated into the structure of the federal representation of the Austrian Students' Union.

      With the ÖH elections in 2015, and a previous amendment to the University Students Act, could the university associations at the universities of applied sciences, teacher-training universities, and private universities finally act as a body under public law.

      We have now been working on steadily improving the study conditions for students for over 10 years.
