FAQ Admission Procedure Master Programmes

What do I do if relevant documents are still missing from my application?

  • If documents relevant for admission are still missing at the time of application (e.g. your bachelor degree certificate), then upload the last educational document available to you (e.g. annual report of a 7th grade academic secondary school (AHS) or a 4th grade higher-level vocational school (BHS)). Please indicate in your CV when you expect to receive the access-relevant certificate and submit it immediately via the application portal as soon as you have it.

When does the admission test take place?

  • The online admission test takes place for all degree programmes in the summer semester, from March to June. Once your application documents have been fully reviewed, you can select one of the proposed dates for your individual admission test via the application portal. You will be informed by e-mail as soon as the dates are activated for you.

How can I prepare for the admission test?

  • The admission procedure for master programmes consists of an online admission test and an oral part, which may be an interview, presentation or other appropriate form. For optimal preparation, you will find individual preparation guides for the admission test for each of our master programmes on our website from around the end of January. A course from external providers is not necessary! Once you have taken the test, you will be informed by the staff of the degree programme about time, duration, content, and form of the second (oral) part of the admission procedure.

Do I need a calculator for the admission test?

  • For the programme-specific topics of the master degree programmes International Banking and Finance, Quantitative Asset and Risk Management and Europäische Wirtschaft und Unternehmensführung, you are allowed to use the calculator which is integrated in the exam tool, as well as a pen and some paper for taking notes. You can familiarise yourself in advance with the functionality of this calculator by taking the trial test. As soon as you have received the access data for the admission test, you will also have access to the trial test. Please make use of this possibility and note that external aids (own calculators etc.) are not permitted and will result in exclusion from the admission process.

When will I be notified whether I have a place on the degree programme?

  • We inform our best applicants at an early stage that we would like to offer them a place on the degree programme (early May or early June). Even if you do not receive a study place confirmation, you still have a chance to study at UAS BFI Vienna: The final ranking will be made at the end of June/beginning of July and all applicants will be informed by e-mail about their admission or a place on the waiting list at the latest.

Can I apply for two or more degree programmes?

  • Yes, this is possible. Once you know to which programme(s) you have been admitted we request that you inform us as soon as possible of your choice of degree programme.
