Higher Education Institutions in Austria
Public Universities Apart from the traditional
comprehensive universities, which offer a wide
variety of disciplines, there are a number of
techni- cal and medical specialist universities
as well as a university centre for postgradu-
ate education. Austrias six universities of the
arts offer programmes in music, applied,
performing and fine arts as well as in the
visual arts and design. Though the common
language of instruction remains German, an
increas- ing number of programmes is offered in
English, see www.studienwahl.at/en The total
number of students is 280,445 (of whom
international students 73,795). (Statistik
Austria 2015/16) Academic calendar The academic
year in Austria as a rule be- gins on October
1st and ends on September 30th of the following
year. It consists of ? winter semester (October
1st to January 30th), ? summer semester (March
1st to September 30th) and periods during which
no lectures are held (Christmas, semester and
summer breaks). (Exceptions from this schedule
are possible please enquire at the edu
cational institution of your choice.) for
addresses see appendix
Structure of study programmes In the last
decades the Austrian university system has
introduced the European threetier system of
degrees according to the Bologna
Process. Besides, the old twotier system still
ex ists in some subject areas and universities
(for example medicine). Bachelor and master
study programmes Most degree programmes are
divided into ? Bachelor programmes, which con-
clude with the degree of Bachelor. ECTS credits
180 (in special cases 240) ? Master programmes,
which require the successful completion of a
bachelor study programme and conclude with the
academic degree of Master. ECTS credits at least
120 Traditional diploma programmes These
programmes conclude with the award of a diploma
Magistra or Magister in most disciplines or
Diplomingenieur(in) for engineers. Duration 4
6 years. Doctoral studies (Dr. / PhD) Doctoral
studies are based on the successful completion
of diploma or master degree pro- grammes and are
conceived to demonstrate the ability of
autonomous research. Doctor- al programmes
conclude with the degree of Doktor/in or
PhD. The duration is at least three years
without the award of ECTS credits.

Private Universities Austrian private
universities offer innova- tive and high quality
education and provide students with personal
attention at the highest academic level.
Continuous internal and external evaluation of
teaching and re- search as well as active
promotion of the arts assure constant university
quality de- velopment. The Austrian private
universities refine exis- ting and establish new
degree programmes based on current and future
educational needs. Periodic external
re-accreditation reviews supplement internal
quality man- agement and provide graduates with
excel- lent chances for their future
careers. The Conference of Austrian Private
Univer- sities (OePUK) serves as official
represent- ative for its members both in Austria
and abroad. The curricula of the Austrian
private uni- versities as well as the academic
degrees awarded by them differ from university
to university. www.privatuniversitaeten.at Inform
ation about these institutions and their
programmes is available on the web- site of the
Federal Ministry of Science, Re- search and
Economy (www.bmwfw.gv.at) and from the private
universities direct- ly. The number of students
is 10,202 (of whom international students
4,017). (Statistik Austria 2015/16)
Certiftcate University Program- mes for Further
Education Universitätslehrgänge Certificate
university programmes for fur- ther education
are the main form of con- tinuing education
offered at universities and universities of
applied sciences. An in- ternationally common
master degree (MA, MSc, MBA,... depending on the
discipline) is awarded when the certificate
university programme for further education is
com- parable to the respective master degree
programme with regard to admission con- ditions,
content and scope of the curricu- lum. Usually
these programmes comprise 90 to 120 ECTS
credits. Most programmes are part-time
programmes, therefore the duration varies from
one up to three or four years. In all other
cases the title Akademischer or
Akademische (Academic.) togeth- er with an
attribute characterising the field of the
certificate university programme for further
education may be awarded if the programme
comprises a minimum of 60 ECTS credits. An
overview of the courses on offer can be found
at www.studienwahl.at/en

Universities of Applied Sciences
(UAS) Fachhochschulen (FH) Universities of
Applied Sciences offer their students
professionally-oriented higher education. This
is reflected in their curricula, which include
mandatory career-oriented practical training
units or job-based intern- ships. The number of
students per year and programme is limited, and
for this reason most of the programmes have an
entrance procedure, which has to be successfully
completed. UAS offer full-time and
extra-occupation- al study programmes.
Extra-occupational programmes are designed for
working stu- dents and take their specific
situation into account. For the completion of
all UAS pro- grammes a relevant thesis and an
examina- tion are required. The academic degrees
awarded are Bachelor and Master. In the
technical fields Master of Science or
Diplom-Ingenieur(in) (equiv- alent to a Master
of Science) are awarded. Graduates of UAS
masters programmes may enrol in doctoral
programmes at uni- versities. In line with the
Bologna Process Universities of Applied Sciences
have of- fered bachelors and masters
programmes since 2003.
? UAS bachelor programmes 3 years Bachelor UAS
master programmes 1 2 years Master
At present more than 600 UAS degree programmes
in areas such as Business, En- gineering and IT,
Social Sciences, Media and Design, Health
Sciences and Cultur- al Sciences are offered by
21 institutions (see list on page 82). About 80
degree programmes are offered entirely in
English. The total number of students is approx-
imately 48,051. 17 of the students go abroad
for a period of study or a professio- nal
placement.

Study Programmes 8 9
University Colleges of Teacher Education The 14
Austrian university colleges of teacher
education, nine state-run univer- sity colleges
as well as five private institu- tions, offer
qualifications and continuing further education
programmes for peda- gogical and especially
teaching professions. Range of studies Teaching
qualifications are established as four-year
(eight-semes- ter, workload 240 ECTS credits)
bachelor's (Bachelor of Education, BEd) and at
least one-year (two semester, at least 60 ECTS
credits) master's (Master of Education, MEd)
degree programmes. Master degree programmes with
teaching qualification for secondary schools may
only be offered in the form of a joint study
programme with one (or several)
universities. Public university colleges of
teacher edu- cation establish the following
degree pro- grammes
? Bachelor and master degree for teaching
qualification at primary level ? Bachelor and
master degree for teaching qualification at
secondary level (secondary school) ? Bachelor
degree programmes alone as well as bachelor and
master degree programmes for teaching
qualification at secondary level (vocational
schools)

Studying and Residence in Austria
Application for Admission to Study in
Austria You have to send the application and ne
cessary documents to the university, the
university of applied sciences (Fachhoch- schule
/ UAS) or the UAS degree pro- gramme
(applications submitted to the Austrian
representative authorities will be forwarded to
the educational institution applications must
arrive at the university on time, please bear in
mind that forward- ing may take some time
submission of the application at the
representative authority does not extend the
deadlines!). Many uni- versities offer a
registration of data via Internet and will
then send specific infor- mation to you via
e-mail. Closing dates/deadlines and necessary
requirements 1 At universities the closing dates
for applica- tion for the winter semester are
September 5th, for the summer semester February
5th. Further information about differing admis-
sion periods and admission procedures (e.g. for
study programmes with entrance ex- aminations),
general and specific universi- ty entrance
qualification and the necessary documents can be
found at www.oead.at, www.studyinaustria.at,
www.studienbe ginn.at and on the website of the
university of your choice. University application
forms can be down- loaded from the universities'
websites or else the universities will send them
to you.
Attention In some study programmes, e.g.
architecture, biology, economy, infor- matics,
medicine, dentistry, psychology the university
may limit admissions ei- ther by introducing an
entrance examina- tion before admission or by
carrying out a selection procedure until two
semesters after admission (detailed information
is available from the universities
concerned). For many programmes proof of
proficien cy in German is necessary and should
also be included in the application documents,
if available (e.g. German examination with- in
the school leaving examination, lan- guage
course diplomas). See German lan- guage
courses on page 14. Foreign documents have to be
presented in the original (and in photocopy) and
have to be legalised 2. If documents are drawn
up in languages other than German, legalised
translations have to be added, translations done
abroad also have to be legalised.
1 The requirements for admission to Certificate
Univer- sity Programmes for Further Education
differ from course to course and should be
enquired about at the
individual courses. 2
Legalisation is done by the competent authorities
of the issuing countries and then by the
Austrian rep- resentative authority in that
country or after prior legalisation by the
representative authority in Austria of the
country of issue of the document by the
Austrian Ministry for Foreign Affairs
(legalisation office) (only for original
documents). Documents from certain countries
either require only an apostille or no
legalisation at all. Detailed information is
available from the Austrian representative
authorities.

  • Entry and Residence Conditions
  • Nationals of EU and EEA member countries as well
    as Swiss nationals do not need visas or
    residence permits. When stay- ing in Austria for
    longer than 3 months (90 days) they, however,
    have to apply for a confirmation of registration
    (Anmelde- bescheinigung) at the residence
    authority (Landeshauptmann, Magistrat, Bezirks-
    hauptmannschaft) within 4 months of entry to
    Austria.
  • Other foreigners have, if they are stay- ing for
    longer than 6 months, to apply for a residence
    permit for study purposes (Aufenthaltsbewilligun
    g Studierender) 3 at the Austrian
    representative authority before entry to Austria
    after receipt of the notification of admission.
    The application will be sent to Austria and the
    decision has to be awaited in ones country of
    residence (therefore the application should be
    sub- mitted at least 3 6 months before the in-
    tended arrival in Austria).
  • Exception Applicants who are allowed to enter
    Austria without a visa (informa- tion about this
    is available from the Aus- trian embassies) may
    apply for and receive the residence permit from
    the residence authority once they are in Austria.

Universities of the arts and UAS degree
programmes have different application deadlines
and often do not require proof of the general or
specific university entrance qualification
instead, prospective students have to pass an
entrance examination or produce proof of
relevant professional qualification.
Information about the pre- requisites (these
differ from one institution to the other) is
available from the universi- ties of the arts,
the universities of applied sciences and UAS
degree programmes. If all prerequisites are met,
the education- al institution will send the
notification of admission or the invitation to
sit an en trance examination to the address
speci- fied by the applicant. Students may be
admitted as degree programme students or if
supplementary examinations are required and in
the case of certificate uni- versity programmes
for further education (Universitätslehrgänge)
as non-degree programme students. On arrival in
Austria students have to enrol in person with
the university or UAS degree programme.
3 For stays of up to 6 months maximum a visa C
for a maximum of 90 days or D (91 days to 6
months maximum) is sufficient, this, however,
can neither be applied for nor renewed in
Austria.

Austria. For a renewal of the residence permit
an additional confirmation of the success- ful
course of study (Studienerfolgsnach- weis) is
necessary examinations equal- ling 8

Health Insurance for Students Students admitted
to an Austrian univer- sity or university of the
arts or UAS degree programme as regular degree
pro- gramme students may take out a com
prehensive health insurance with one of the
local public carriers (Österreichische
Gebietskrankenkasse). This insurance is only
available to Austrians and for- eigners who have
established a legal residence in Austria (and
fulfil several requirements regarding duration
of stu- dies, change of study programmes,
income, study programmes already completed).
Forms to apply for this insurance coverage are
available at the respective Gebietskran
kenkasse branch offices and the Austrian Student
Union (ÖH Österreichische Hoch-
schülerschaft). The insurance premium for this
coverage currently amounts to 56.74 (as of
2017) per month for students. Students can con-
sult all physicians who have a contract with the
Gebietskrankenkasse. Students from EU/EEA
countries who are in possession of a valid
health insurance in their home countries need
the European Health Insurance Card. Students
who do not meet these require- ments have to
take out insurance with private insurance
companies or the local insurance carriers
(Gebietskrankenkassen) themselves (higher
premium)!
German Language and University Preparation
Courses The common language of instruction is
German, but an increasing number of programmes
is offered in English (about 12 of the degree
programmes at public universities in 2014).
Programmes taught in English, see
www.studienwahl.at/en In order to be admitted to
a degree programme you have to prove sufficient
knowledge of German. At some univer- sities you
need proficiency in German corresponding to
level B2, at others cor- responding to level C1
of the Common European Framework of Reference
for Lan- guages. There are different diplomas
that are accepted, e.g. the Österreichisches
Sprachdiplom Deutsch, Austrias officially
recognised examination system for Ger- man as a
foreign language with licensed examination
centres all over the world www.osd.at. Please
enquire directly at the university or UAS of
your choice to find out whether or not the
certificate / diploma you hold is also accepted
as sufficient proof!

  • Working in Austria
  • For students who are EU or EEA or Swiss
    nationals there are no restrictions concerning
    work in Austria as long as the fiscal and
    national insurance regulations are met.
  • Students from Croatia still need (probably until
    2020) a work permit before taking up gainful
    employment.
  • Students from third countries need a work permit
    to work in Austria. The per- mit is to be
    obtained by the employer be- fore the student
    starts working. The work permit is granted for
    students in a bach- elor's programme and the
    first stage of a traditional diploma degree
    programme for up to 10 hours per week
    (presumably there will be changes in 2017), for
    students in a master's programme and the second
    stage of a traditional diploma degree pro-
    gramme and doctoral candidates for up to 20
    hours per week. Work in the field of science and
    research or on the basis of a contract for work
    and labour (self-em- ployment, Werkvertrag)
    (by which you are not fully employed and have to
    take care of your income tax and health insur-
    ance yourself) does not require a permit.
    Further information is available from the Public
    Employment Service (AMS, www. ams.or.at). Please
    note that your stay in Austria cannot be
    financed exclusively by such employment! Your
    work must not compromise your studies.
    Non-compliance with these regulations may lead
    to expul- sion from Austria!

University Preparation Programmes Vorstudienlehrgä
nge of the OeAD In addition, many universities
offer the possibility to attend language courses
at the University Preparation Programmes
(Vorstudienlehrgänge) of the OeAD lo- cated in
Vienna, Graz and Leoben (ad- dresses see
appendix). By attending these programmes
students can prepare them selves for
supplementary examinations (e.g. in mathematics
or German ) which they have to take to be
admitted to a de- gree programme. Students can
also begin their studies without knowledge of
Ger- man and be admitted to university studies
after passing the supplementary examina- tion in
German (or other subjects). Other institutions
and organisations also offer a variety of German
language cours- es for foreigners. For more
