FAQ Programme-PRe-Phase Technical Physics

Deadlines for the Programme-PRe-Phase for the winter semester 2021

Application period: Saturday, February 20, 2021 to Sunday, September 5, 2021.
Please note that admission is only possible in person at the Admissions Office from July 12, 2021 to September 5, 2021. Admission to a Bachelor's Programme after the general admission period (extension period) is only possible in legally stipulated exceptional cases.

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.

Bachelor's Programme Programme Technical Physics (033 261)

Five steps to admission:

  1. Complete TISS application
  2. Online survey and feedback on knowledge status (Programme-PRe-Phase)
  3. Complete educational documentation (a query of statistical data on the social background of applicants)
  4. Data entry for admission (formerly online pre-entry) - directly from the TISS user
  5. Admission to studies

Yes. You cannot be admitted to the degree Programme if you have not completed the Programme-PRe-Phase in full. All those who have completed the Programme-PRe-Phase will be offered a place at TU Wien.

Online-Self-Assessment

We offer an online tool to help you choose a course of study and to provide support for realistic self-assessment. The tests and questionnaires contained in the tool provide an overview of the requirements that we consider necessary for successful study. The tool takes about two hours to complete.

It is best to call up the online self-assessment directly from your application.

If you have already completed the online self-assessment for "Mechanical Engineering" (is also for Mechanical Engineering - Management) at TU Wien, you can enter the confirmation code directly in your application. This will be sent to the email address you provided.

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.

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.

A Matura or university entrance qualification is not required for the Programme-PRe-Phase. For admission to the degree programme, however, you do need to have completed the Programme-PRe-Phase and have either a Matura or a university entrance qualification! More detailed information on admission can be found on the admission pages.

A completed Programme-PRe-Phase is valid for 6 semesters, subject to a general change in the admission requirements.

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

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.

Please enquire immediately at the Admissions Office about the additional procedural steps required. Please note the longer processing times.
