8. Visa and admission to the University of Vienna:

8.1. What do I have to do to get my visa or my residence permit?

If you want to study in Vienna, Austria, first you need a confirmation of admission to the University of Vienna. You need this admission in order to be able to apply for your student visa at the Austrian Embassy in your home country.

8.2. And what if I don’t get a visa? Am I still obliged to pay for the whole German course?

If you forward the visa refusal to us at the latest 1 week before German classes begin, you will get your money back.
If we have already sent a confirmation of enrolment to the Embassy or incurred other expenses, you must bear these expenses.

8.3. What do I need for admission to the University of Vienna?

To be allowed to become a student at the University of Vienna, you need the Matura (equivalent of German Abitur) or an equivalent qualification which entitles you to study at a university.
You must also already be enrolled at a university in your home country (both for the same period of time and for the same field of study). Students from certain Asian countries must also establish that they have already studied for a certain period at home.
You must also be able to prove a knowledge of German. So if you did not learn German in school, you must learn German before starting your study. We are happy to help you prepare for the ÖSD-Mittelstufenprüfung.

8.4. Is my secondary school certificate recognized in Austria?

You can find out whether your school-leaving certificate is recognized in Austria on this page: https://www.bmbf.gv.at/enfr/index.html

8.5. Where do I get detailed information about enrolment in the University of Vienna?

The University of Vienna has its own homepage to answer your questions (http://www.univie.ac.at/) and also offers the possibility of enrolling online (https://univis.univie.ac.at/vi_studenten/flow/studenten-flow) and having information sent to you. These are designed specially for your home country.

8.6. Will my course confirmation be recognized by the magistrate or the embassy for a visa?

After you have been classified into a course and have paid the course fee, you will receive a registration confirmation. Usually, this is sufficient for a visa application. However, we recommend that you discuss this matter with the magistrate or your embassy prior to booking the course.
