The documents must be checked for errors, valid and notarized. The deadline for submitting documents for the winter semester is October 1, for the summer semester — March 1.

For admission to the university and further registration of the scholarship, a package of documents will be required:

  • Completed entrance form from the university's website
  • Diplomas and academic certificates with a list of grades and completed courses
  • A certificate from a higher educational institution confirming the possibility of admission to the university
  • Certificate of knowledge of the German language (ÖSD B2)

The availability of entrance exams in the universities in Vienna depends on the specialty you are applying for, as well as on the competition. So, doctors, psychologists, lawyers, architects – they always pass entrance exams. Other faculties can accept applicants without exams, but only if the number of applicants is not too large.

Grants, scholarships for the international students

The management and distribution of grants and scholarships in Austria is handled by a centralized structure – the Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research (OeAD-Gmbh).

Student funding can come from different sources, for example:

  • Special scientific and cultural foundations
  • National funds
  • Austrian government organizations
  • International organizations (UN, IAEA).

In total, almost 1,700 grants and scholarships are available here, but their number varies significantly by specialization: most programs are offered by programs:

  • Biology
  • Medical research
  • Chemistry
  • Physics.

It is difficult to find funding for a humanitarian specialty, but it is possible. Usually, grants are designed for a short period of time — for the time of writing a scientific paper or performing research in a certain field. It is quite difficult to get full funding, basically the scholarship covers one or two semesters. There are different types of scholarships in the format:

  • Full payment for tuition and meals in the student canteen (accommodation, medical insurance, travel is paid by the recipient himself)
  • Compensation of part of the tuition fee
  • One-time payment for certain purposes
  • Monthly payments that the recipient spends at his own discretion + payment for work and research trips.

Usually, the largest funding is offered for doctoral programs. Candidates who meet the requirements of the foundation have the opportunity to receive full funding for several years of scientific work — students will receive 2,000- 3,000 euro per month.
