From 1 October 2019 to 15 May 2020 you can apply for studying with us as of winter term 2020/21!
First, you should register on our application portal. You will receive an access code which you can use to start preparing your application.
Choose the degree programme you would like to apply for – you can select more than one – and fill in the required fields. Then upload your documents and submit your application. We will then contact you by e-mail.
No problem! You can use your access code to log into the application portal, upload documents and check the status of your application at any time.
For our degree programmes offered in German you require German language competence level CEFR C1 and English language competence level B2. For the degree programmes offered in English you require English competence level CEFR C1. You need not produce certificates as evidence of your language skills; those skills will be ascertained by us during the admission procedure. If necessary, you will have to take a supplementary exam.
If you meet the admission requirements, you will be invited to take part in the admission procedure. You will receive the invitation by e-mail. You can choose your appointment for the admission test and the interview from the appointments on offer. Information on the procedure will be communicated by e-mail.
The student fee is EUR 363.36 per semester (+ EUR 20 Austrian Students Union fee) for the bachelor and master programmes. When participating in the admission procedure, you will not have to pay any fees. You will not be reimbursed by UAS BFI Vienna for any travel and accommodation costs incurred in the admission process.
If you meet one of the following admission requirements for our bachelor programmes, you are welcome to apply right now:
If you do not have an Austrian secondary school leaving certificate and are applying on the basis of your relevant professional qualifications, you must take supplementary examinations as part of the admission procedure.
Each bachelor programme will list which supplementary exams are required. We also inform you by e-mail which exams you need to take and when the exams are held. The supplementary exams need to be taken in addition to the admission procedure and before the degree programmes start.
If you have already completed a bachelor programme and also meet the programme-relevant admission requirements, we are looking forward to your applications! Each master programme will list which supplementary exams are required.
Please have any documents not issued in German or English translated into one of these two languages, and upload the translation on the application portal together with the original document. Depending on the state that issued your documents you may need different legalisations. The Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Science and Culture legalisation list provides detailed information on documents that require certification.
If you have any questions regarding specific admission requirements for holders of foreign school leaving or degree certificates, or non-EU/non-EEA certificates, please contact our Admission Office. We will inform you about the supplementary examinations you are required to take. You must sit these examinations in addition to the standard admission procedure and before the start of the degree programme at the UAS BFI Vienna.
Applicants from outside the EU/the EEA are welcome! The student fee is EUR 363.36 per semester (+ EUR 20 Austrian Students Union fee and thus is the same as for EU/EEA citizens. However, third-country applicants who have also met their admission requirements in a third country, will be charged a deposit of EUR 200 during the submission of their application. This deposit will count towards your student fee in the first semester if you are admitted as a student to one of our degree programmes. If you do not become a student at our university, we will refund the deposit after the admission procedure has been completed.
We highly value a barrier-free access to the insitution and to our degree programmes. Please contact our our staff members in charge of diversity issues to find out how we can accommodate you and your special needs in the admission procedure. Please note that if you are aiming for an admission procedure mode that diverges from the standard procedure (e.g. more time), a specialist report must be presented.
The admission test and interview will take place during the summer semester at the UAS BFI Vienna. If you meet the admission requirements for a bachelor programme, you can choose your appointment for the admission test and the interview from the appointments on offer. If you are accepted to take the admission test for a master programme, you will be informed about the appointment by e-mail.
Preparation materials can be found on the website of the respective degree programme by the End of January 2020.
Once all applicants have completed the admission procedure, we will notify you by e-mail about whether we can offer you a place and, if so, send you a copy of the education contract. Places on the various degree programmes are awarded on the basis of performance in the respective admission procedure. If you return the signed education contract and transfer the student fee for the first semester in time, you study place is secured. You must submit any original certificates related to your application before the degree programme starts.
