The application has to include original documents. Legalized copies are NOT accepted! 

Legalisation of original documents

APOSTILLE: Documents from countries which are Contracting States to the “Hague Legalization Convention" do not need the full diplomatic legalization if they are supplied with the Apostille, which means that for original documents from these countries the legalization in the form of the Apostille is sufficient.

Translations

If the original document has not been issued in English or German, a translation into German or English is mandatory.

Legalization of the translations 

Translations issued abroad by a legally certified translator have to be legalized by means of an APOSTILLE or certified (or translated) by a sworn and officially accredited translator in Austria.

Application deadline

For the doctorate there are more generous application deadlines, meaning that application is also possible after the end of the grace period (winter semester on the 30 November and summer semester on the 30 April).

However, we recommend that you apply as soon as possible and that you take the start of lectures into consideration. If you submit the application later, admission in the same semester cannot be guaranteed.

Processing time

The application process can take more than 12 weeks. Please take this into account when planning your studies. Also note that admission might not be possible in the semester applied for.

Tuition fee

Regular students with an EU/ EEA nationality only pay the student union fee of currently € 19.70 per semester as long as they study in the minimum study duration (+ grace semester).

More information on tuition fee and on possible waivers are available here.
