How can I be admitted as an international applicant?

Am I an international applicant?

You are an international applicant if you are not an Austrian citizen, but

  • from an EU country, the EEA or Switzerland, or
  • from a third country.

What requirements do I have to meet?

Basically, you will have to meet the same requirements as Austrian students. You are required to furnish proof of sufficient knowledge of English. Language competency must be equivalent to Level B2.


The letter of application and the CV must be submitted in English. Other application documents (with the exception of original documents) can be submitted in English or German.

What requirements apply to my international documents?

Special regulations apply to documents that have not been issued in Austria. Your documents must fulfil these regulations to be accepted. Different provisions may apply depending on your country of origin: see the Translation and Authentication Guidelines by country.


It will take some time to review your international documents. You should therefore submit your documents no later than 14 days prior to the application deadline.

Admission Interview

Appointments for the admission interview are assigned individually on an ongoing basis. English language skills will be checked during the interview.
