Study in Austria

Requirements for the admission to Austrian universities The following requirements must be fulfilled for the matriculation of a foreign citizen (or a stateless person) as a regular student in Austrian

university degree programmes:

• A place to study has to be available at the university for the desired course of studies. • The applicant must have an A-level or high school diploma, that can be considered equivalent to an Austrian Matura examination certification (either regulated by an agreement or in individual cases decided by the vice chancellor, possibly with certain requirements) or furnish proof of completion of a three-year (minimum) study at another certified post-secondary educational institution. • The certification must be sufficient for acceptance to the desired course of study at a university in the country in which it was acquired. Any study-related requirements (e.g. entrance examination) must be fulfilled in the country in which the A-level or high school diploma was issued. • If the desired course of study in Austria is not offered in the home country, then this proof is to be furnished regarding the most similar course of study. Only if the country does not have a university, this proof does not have to be submitted. • In addition, the applicant must have sufficient German knowledge. If necessary, an examination is to be taken.

This can be implemented either before the studies are begun or after the admission within the first two semesters. Usually, selection procedures take place before admission. Please contact the respective universities for further information.

Universities of applied sciences

Courses at universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschul-Studiengänge) were created as an independent supplement and alternative to the existing courses of study at universities. Particular features of this type of education are: • Profession-oriented and experience-oriented organisation • Fixed study duration – six semesters (bachelor study) and two to four semesters (master study) – obligatory attendance • Award of an academic degree to the graduates Students at universities of applied sciences are on an equal footing with students at other universities. Measures concerning academic subsidies or subsidies of studies abroad also apply to students at universities of applied sciences.
