The review of the application is an administrative procedure. This means that there are legal requirements that the applicants and the university must comply with. This includes first checking the formal requirements (e.g. required legalizations) and only then are the content-related requirements evaluated.

We would therefore like to point out that an application should only be submitted if you meet the necessary formal requirements. Applications that do not meet these requirements lead to a longer process time and eventually have to be rejected.

Who will be regarded as an international student within the application process?

Applicants are considered international students if they obtained documents, which enabel them to study, abroad. This means international students are:

  • EU/EEA Nationalities
  • Third Country Nationalities
  • Austrian Nationals

with Foreign General University Entrance Qualification (Secondary School Leaving Certificate or University Degree)

Admission Process

The admission process for international students consists of the following steps

Step One: Application

Within the application step, applicants are responsible to provide the Academic Affairs Office with the required documents. Based on the application with the documents, it will be evaluated whether or not the general admission requirements are fulfilled.

The application with all required documents can be submitted online via the "online pre-registration: data capture" tool.

Please keep in mind that the processing of applications can take several weeks. In case of a positive evaluation, Step Two is required.


Step Two: Enrollment

The enrolment in the Academic Affairs Office is only possible once you have successfully applied. When you enrol, the Matrikelnummer and the payment information is generated. Only once the payment arrives in the Academic Affairs Office on time (a few days after the payment is done), the enrolment is completed.

For study programs with restricted admission, the confirmation of the passed entrance procedure/entrance exam of the current semester has to be handed in at the time of the enrollment! This also applies for the bachelor Teacher Training Programme. Without this confirmation, the enrollment is not possible even if the first two steps have been successfully completed!

If you enroll as participant of the Vorstudienlehrgang (VGUH) as irregular student, you will be registered by the VGUH. This means after successful admission (step one) you have to register personally at the VGUH. All necessary data will then be sent to the university by the VGUH. Afterwards, you receive your matriculation number and payment details from the university via email. Therefore, please check your emails regularly (including the spam and junk folders).
