Application Process

We strongly encourage ambitious and driven international students to apply for this Bachelor’s programme. We invite you, the student, to take this unique opportunity to expand your international mindset, as this distinct type of skill-set is being demanded in the global marketplace today. The programme is taught entirely in English, and due to the technical nature of the course material, it is strongly recommended to have a solid understanding of the English language.

Why study at our campus? The answer is simple: we want to showcase our highly-acclaimed school and programme, while giving our local students the opportunity to gain necessary international exposure. Our aim is to ultimately create a learning environment which can truly match the ‘internationalised’ course content, and in which you can form life-long partnerships with colleagues from around the world. Thus, half of the seats in this programme are specifically devoted to international students.

    ** If your original documents have not been issued in English, please make sure to upload scanned copies of your original documents with certified translations (either German or English).

  4. Once all interviews have been conducted, we will then contact you to inform you whether or not your application has been successful. This process can take a couple of weeks, and we ask that you remain patient.  

Attention: if given preliminary admission, international applicants MUST provide legalised documents (this is done by the Austrian diplomatic representative in your home country) in German or English for the following documents:

  • High School Diploma with transcript (courses and grades)
  • Birth Certificate

** An acceptance letter will only be issued after ALL of the legalised documents have been received.

** Please note, if admitted to the programme, it is the student's responsibility to complete all necessary Visa requirements for entry and duration of their stay in Austria – please give yourself enough time to finalise all Visa paperwork, as this may take up to 3 months to process. Depending on the mutual agreements between your country and Austria, you may have to take several steps in order to be able to apply for a residence permit/study permit. Please refer to the OeAD homepage for more details. More information pertaining to Austria can be found here: Welcome 2 Upper Austria
