Start your studies at TU Wien

If you would like to start your studies at TU Wien, you will need extensive information about the planned admission procedures and deadlines.

Starting from winter semester 2019/2020, there will be either admission or selection procedures (limited places) or a study preparation and reflection phase (VoR phase) for self-orientation (non-limiting) for all Bachelor Programmes at TUW. So the first step is to complete the Online-Registration.

You can find the offered study programmes here.

What means admission exactly?

Admission to a study programme at a university is the formal start of your studies. The enrolment all bachelor's, master's and doctoral studies has to be done in person at the Admission Office during the admission period.

When you are first admitted to a study programme at an Austrian university, each student is assigned a so-called registration number. This 8-digit number will accompany you throughout your studies, regardless of whether and how often you change your studies or the university. The registration number appears in all documents (certificates, student ID card, study confirmations) and must be shown when further admission to another course of study is carried out at all Austrian universities.
