Applications and Acceptance
Applicants with Foreign Documents and International Degrees
Please have any documents not issued in German or English translated into one of these two languages by an authorized translator 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 legalizations. “The Legalization List for Higher Education“ of The Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research provides all detailed information on which form of legalization your documents require.
If you have any questions regarding specific admission requirements for holders of foreign school leaving or degree certificates, or international 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.
Required language level
For our degree programmes offered in German you require German language competence level CEFR-level C1 and English language competence level B2.
For the degree programmes offered in English you require English competence level C1. German language competence is not necessary for these programmes.
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 in German or English. Preparatory courses for Mathematics, English (level C1) or German (level C1) can be taken at fit4fh.
Applicants from third countries (non-EU/non-EEA countries)
The student fee is EUR 363.36 per semester (+ EUR 21.20 Austrian Students Union fee and thus is the same as for EU/EEA citizens. If you have met your admission requirements in a third country (Non-EU, Non-EEA) and if you are a third-country national you will be charged a deposit of EUR 200,- during the submission of your 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 decide not to study at the University of Applied Sciences BFI Vienna, we will refund your deposit after the admission procedure has been completed in autumn. Please refer to our general terms and conditions on deposits
