Austria/ 8.3 Arts and cultural education  

8.3.1 Institutional overview

The Austrian school system is essentially uniformly nationally regulated. In relation to the organisation (establishment, maintenance, school hours, number of students per class) of the public compulsory schools, legislation on the fundamentals is the responsibility of the federal government, the passing of implementing legislation and its execution is the task of the individual provinces. The curricula are formulated nationally in the Federal Law Gazette and include objectives for musical education and artistic education for each school grade.
