Every year, a growing number of highly-qualified graduates of all the study programs offered leave the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, ready to embark on their new career paths and lives. The final works are presented during the Open Days in January and in the Thesis Exhibition at the end of the academic year. Photos and information on individual works can be found in the thesis database of the Academy and in the Art & Education Yearbook.
