Leg­al­iz­a­tion and trans­la­tion of doc­u­ments

Doc­u­ments is­sued out­side of Aus­tria must be leg­al­ized in ac­cord­ance with ex­ist­ing reg­u­la­tions for re­cog­ni­tion in Aus­tria.

If a doc­u­ment was not ori­gin­ally is­sued in Ger­man or Eng­lish, you must ad­di­tion­ally sub­mit a Ger­man or Eng­lish trans­la­tion. For trans­la­tions, cer­tain reg­u­la­tions ap­ply as well.

Tu­ition fees

Tu­ition fees are the same for Bach­elor's, Mas­ter's, Doc­toral and PhD pro­grams, however, they de­pend on your na­tion­al­ity and on reas­ons for a waiver of tu­ition fees as passed by the Aus­trian gov­ern­ment.
