The Bologna Process has profoundly changed higher education in Europe. For German-speaking countries, the study of psychology in Austria serves as a vivid example both of the benefits of increased intra-European mobility and of the challenges inherent in integrating heterogeneous educational systems. In the past decade, a growing number of German students have been studying psychology in Austria. On the one hand, this has raised concerns about Austria's ability to educate enough Austrian psychologists to sustain existing national standards of psychosocial care (e. g., Neuhauser, 2016). On the other hand, the exponential growth of diverse psychology programs in the private university sector has made the educational landscape more complex. The following text aims to shed light on these developments by summarizing current data on psychology education in Austria.
