Information for prospective students

TU Wien MINT-Map gives an overview on support and information possibilities for prospective students.

A swift and successful study depends on many factors. TU Wien attempts to offer all study beginners a wide range of support measures. These measures are intended to enable the new students from the beginning to network and face challenges as well as to avoid known difficulties.

Take advantage of the offer or become actively part of the support offers (eg mentoring).


Wordcloud for the alignment course mathematics

The Equalization Course Mathematics (German: Angleichungskurs Mathematik - AK MATH) repeats the basic chapters of school mathematics for the upcoming study. Absolute recommendation!


Successful students of higher semesters support study beginners and returnees and accompany them through their first semester at TU Wien.

Barrier-free studying

TUW barrier-free - the service point for students who have disabilities, are chronically ill or are impaired in another form.
