Höhere Bundeslehranstalt für Landwirtschaft (HBLA Ursprung), based in Salzburg, Austria, is a
dedicated provider of high-quality secondary education focused on the fields of agriculture
and environmental engineering
As a residential school, students from all over Austria come to Ursprung to study for five or three years, respectively.
We are committed to creating a unique and rich learning environment for our students, characterised by a culture of
inclusion, mutual respect, tolerance, innovation and inspiration.
For the past five decades HBLA Ursprung has been educating young people from across Austria and while much has changed,
the essence of school life in Ursprung has remained the same. Our primary aim is to encourage young girls and boys to be
inquiring, tolerant and positive individuals with an independent mind and strong skills in the fields of agriculture and
environmental engineering. We aim to give our students proficient knowledge and multiple practical skills without
weighting social activities and respect for each other to any lesser degree. Our educational concept is based on
progressive teaching and takes on a holistic approach allowing us to combine numerous fields of interest in
agriculture, environmental engineering and science.
