Unterhaltung Image-Sujet

To apply for a Bachelor’s degree program, you must have a general university entrance qualification or a professional qualification in a related field.

You must demonstrate general university entrance qualification by providing one of the following documents:

  • Austrian certificate of eligibility for matriculation
  • Vocational matriculation exam certificate
  • Certificate of eligibility for university entrance for the relevant university program
  • Certificate from another country considered equivalent to one of these Austrian certificates by an international agreement or otherwise recognized; alternatively, the director of the Austrian university degree program may determine equivalence in individual cases
  • Document attesting to the completion of a degree program lasting at least three years at a recognized post-secondary educational institution in Austria or another country

Degrees in several groups of skilled professions or vocational secondary schools (BMS) are considered professional qualifications in a relevant field and meet the admission requirements. The specific groups vary from program to program.  

Master’s degree programs build on a completed bachelor’s degree program and allow students to specialize or focus on topics in more detail or to expand their existing expertise.

You must meet subject-matter requirements to be admitted to the Embedded Systems master’s degree program. Prerequisites include a bachelor’s degree from a UAS in a relevant subject matter or an equivalent degree from a recognized post-secondary educational institution (at least 180 ECTS credits) in Austria or another country. If basic equivalence has been established except for a few missing prerequisites, the program director can require students to take exams to establish full equivalence. These exams are taken during the master’s program. The criteria for basic equivalence vary from degree program to degree program. They are published on the degree program pages

Degree program applicants must have language skills equivalent to level B2 or higher of the Common European Framework Reference for Languages and must be able to submit a certificate of their proficiency. Applicants who have a diploma or university degree in the language of instruction are not required to provide a certificate of their proficiency.

The program director can determine on an individual basis whether an applicant meets admission requirements.
