This allows for obtaining visa and student residence permit.


It is your responsibility as a student to take care of visa arrangements. As soon as you receive your Letter of Acceptance, please get an appointment at the Austrian embassy in Moscow. If you intend to stay for one semester only, it is sufficient to apply for a Visa D (for stays up to 6 month). Degree-seeking students apply for a Residence Permit (for stays of more than 6 months) right from the beginning. Usually embassies require you to bring additional documents such as proof of health insurance, proof of accommodation and a financial statement.

I am a Mobile Computing Master student from Turkey. After spending my entire years in Turkey for working and studying I told myself that it is time to change somethings and hence I decided to experience abroad and come to Austria. I will approximately spend my 2 years at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and to be honest, I am very glad and happy that I did this. Every day is productive. The people called Hagenberg as the Silicon Valley of Austria and is totally correct! Every day, I am learning something new, the professors and the students are very open to study together and they help you to bring amazing projects into life. They are always there for you to get help when needed, you never feel alone here. - Especially after working 4 years, I never imagined that going back to study will be that fun.
If you are ready to change somethings in your life like I did by choosing to study here-don't hesitate - let's get in touch!
