Tertiary education follows secondary education and in Austria includes universities and universities of applied sciences. Tertiary education is considered to be advanced and is part of a theoretical and practical specialisation in certain subject areas. While secondary education has a comprehensive character in terms of content, higher education courses primarily teach specialist knowledge related to a specific subject area. Although university courses are specialised, the universities as such usually provide a wide range of different courses or fields of study that go far beyond the level of secondary education. In addition, a tertiary degree is also a prerequisite for the exercise of a large number of professions in Austria. (such as doctors and lawyers) The tertiary education rate is an indicator that compares the proportion of the population with a tertiary degree with the total population. This ratio can be used to show regional differences in typical educational pathways, some of which vary greatly between certain districts and municipalities. Since education is always seen as the key to success, this ratio can be used to draw conclusions about the social and economic conditions in a region.

Similio offers numerous Tertiary education comparisons with interactive maps. There is a separate map for each Austrian municipality. Further maps for Tertiary education are available at the level of political districts, landscapes, regions and at the level of federal provinces.
