Admission to a master's programme
After completing an at least three years degree programme (180 ECTS), you can apply for admission to a master's programme. The admission is only possible if you have completed a programme in the same field or a closely related scientific discipline.
- Whether or not your degree is equivalent or closely related can only be evaluated after your application.
- Entrance Examination: Some master's programmes are subject to specific
entrance examinations. Application periods might differ from general periods.
- The processing time for applications (with a degree completed at the University of Vienna in a different discipline or a degree completed at another university or postsecondary education institution) takes curently at least 16 weeks. Please apply as early as possible.
- You can only apply with a fully completed degree.(Transcripts without a bachelor diploma cannot be accepted.)
- Due to organisational reasons, the admission office cannot give information about the status of the admission process.
- The personal admission (the last step of the admission procedure) is possible until November 30th (winter semester) and April 30th (summer semester). There are some exceptions to these deadlines.
- Admission after the start of the semester can mean that you might not get a place in certain courses. This might influence your progress while studying.
- You cannot attend classes from the master's programme while still being enrolled in the bachelor's programme.
The admission procedure depends on your nationality and whether you apply with a diploma from the University of Vienna or not.
