Admission to a master programme

After completing an at least three years degree programme (180 ECTS), you can apply for admission to a master programme. The admission is only possible if you have completed a programme in the same field or a closely related scientific discipline. 

Information about eligible diplomas can be found in the curriculum of the degree
programme or in the Master Access Guide.

Curricula of each programme

Please note:

  • Whether or not your degree is equivalent or closely related can only be evaluated after your application.
  • Entrance examination: Some master programmes are subject to specific
    entrance examination. 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 several 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 30 November (winter semester) and 30 April  (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 programme while still being enrolled in the bachelor programme.

The admission procedure depends on your nationality and whether you apply with a diploma from the University of Vienna or not.
