What can I do as a non-degree student at the TU Wien?

Fixed counseling locations are listed at www.anlaufstelle-ankennkennung.at/anlaufstellen, opens an external URL in a new window, opens an external URL in a new window, but additional counseling locations are offered depending on the federal state. For all Ukrainians who want to discuss professional recognition, the counseling service is still possible. However, AST funding for the translation costs is only possible after receipt of the expellee ID card.
Since the AST deals with professional recognition, the clarification of university recognition (recognition of Matura for the purpose of studying, recognition of a study achievement for the purpose of further studies) must be clarified directly at the universities.
In the context of recognition and flight (topic: missing documents), the following must be observed in particular:

- Academic recognition:60 UG (3) and HG § 50 (8):
