Deadlines for the Programme-PRe-Phase for the winter semester 2024

Application period: April 1, 2024 to September 5, 2024

Please note that you must also have completed your Programme-PRe-Phase by then. Please note that admission is only possible in person from July 8, 2024 to September 12, 2024 at the Admissions Office. Admission to a Bachelor's Programme after the general admission period (continuation period until October 31,2024) is only possible in legally stipulated exceptional cases.


At TUW Barrier-free you will find general information to support your studies. The team also helps us with the Programme-PRe-Phase.

Please contact in time (from the beginning of registration) and let us know what support you need. Please note that we cannot extend the deadlines in this case either. In order to be able to support you during the study PRe phase you have to contact us at least a few days before the end of the registration period, depending on the effort required for your support offer.


The Programme-PRe-Phase is intended to serve all prospective students as a decision-making aid for a degree Programme, as well as preparation for entry into the chosen degree Programme. This phase is no a selection tool.

With your TISS account you can apply for a Bachelor's Programme. Your application will guide you through all necessary steps until you are admitted to the program. However, please also always take note of the general admission requirements which are described on the page of the Admissions Office.
With your application for Architecture programme you also take part in the Study-PRe-Phase. You can use it to process your registration or postregistration, receive information in the section "Your Application" and can obtain documents.

Basically yes. Please note, however, that for studies with limited places, only one application per programme is possible! 

Online survey on Programme choice

In the online survey on the planned choice of Programme, structured questions are asked on the motivation to complete the chosen study programme at TU Wien. All contents that are also required in a letter of motivation should be covered.

You call up the online survey directly from your application.

Feedback on the level of knowledge

In the case of feedback on the level of knowledge, the applicants receive information on their level of knowledge in selected subject areas that are relevant for the Bachelor's degree Programme by means of subject-specific tests.

The online test "Mathematics and its Applications" is conducted. This test provides feedback on the level of knowledge in mathematics and is adapted to the specific needs of Bachelor's Programme.

You call up the online test "Feedback on the level of knowledge: Mathematics and its applications" directly from your application.


During the data collection for admission, your personal data, which are necessary for admission, and legally required statistical data are collected. The data collection for admission has to be done directly from your application. Only after the data collection you can make the admission.

With the admission you officially start your studies. You can find more information on the admission pages.

Admission can be carried out from the time your Programme-PRe-Phase is completed in your TISS user. It is always done in person at the study department. You must book an appointment for this in your online application!

Further questions and answers

Yes, you are free to apply to different universities with or without admission restrictions for the same Programme. However, admission may only be granted to one university (§ 63 (8) UG 2002).

Your application is independent of your registration for further studies. Please note the respective deadlines and requirements.

If you are or have already been admitted to a degree Programme in Civil Engineering at TU Wien, you do not have to do a Programme-PRe-Phase but can continue.

A completed Programme-PRe-Phase is valid for 6 semesters, subject to a general change in the admission requirements. After that, you must complete the Programme-PRe-Phase again.

You are treated the same as someone who is not yet studying at all. You have to participate in the Programme-PRe-Phase in order to get a study place.

A university entrance qualification or a secondary school leaving certificate is not required to start the admission procedure. For admission to the programme, however, you do need a confirmation of a place at university and a Matura or higher education entrance qualification! You will find more detailed information on admission on the Admissions pages.

Enquire the Admissions Office about the additional procedural steps. Please also note the longer processing times.

Unfortunately, no deadline extension is possible during the admission procedure or the study-PRe-phase. Likewise, there is no "second chance" at the same procedure. You can participate again in the following procedure.
