Necessary Documents

The following documents need to be presented in order to be admitted to a programme of studies: 

  • A valid travel document (passport) or certificate of nationality in connection with an official picture ID (e.g. driving licence)
  • Proof of university qualification through a secondary school leaving qualification (incl. the last school report, vocational university entrance qualification or a university entrance qualification for mature students (SBP) or a foreign equivalent and the last school report in the original (plus a copy for Non-EU secondary school leaving qualifications);

  • If available: Austrian Social Security Number (eCard)
  • 1 ID picture 
  • If required: In case of transfer from another Austrian university in the same field of study: certificate of transfer and performance record 
  • Confidentiality agreement

All documents presented must be originals and if necessary, a certified translation into German or English needs to be added.  

After the check of the documents, the applicant will receive a student number. The tuition fee and the Student Union fee can be paid immediately at the counter by ATM card. The admission takes place immediately. 

If the tuition fee or the Student Union fee is done by payment form, the booking period will be about one week. The admission only becomes legally valid after the tuition fee and Student Union fee has reached the corresponding account. If the applicant pays by payment form, he/she has to show up again at the Studies and Examinations Department.   

Please note! Every student can only have one student number. Should you already have started to study at an Austrian university, you keep your existing student number.


Note on Places in Small Groups

A large part of the courses takes place in small groups. Please note that you have to personally make sure to register for these groups, or it will not be possible to take part in mandatory courses. 

Irrespective of the admission period, registering for the small groups is only possible until September 15.
