Please upload and submit your application within the given deadline.
Application documents sent via e-mail or post will not be accepted. Application Deadlines: June 1st for winter semester Nov. 1st for summer semester
Once your application has been proceeded and approved, the AAU’s Admission Office will send you the Acceptance Letter (“Bescheid”) to the e-mail address indicated in MOBIS.
The winter semester officially starts on October 1st and ends on January 31st.
The summer semester officially starts on March 1st and ends on June 30th.
Please note that some exams might be scheduled after the official end of the semester (depending on the courses you choose).
The first week of the semester is your Orientation Week. Attendance is only mandatory on our Welcome Day. You will receive a more detailed schedule of the upcoming semester’s Orientation Week prior to your arrival.
You can register for courses only after enrolling personally at the Admission Office and paying the ÖH fee (obligatory fee for all students in Austria commissioned by the Austrian National Union of Students). Please note that course registration is not possible prior to your arrival in Klagenfurt and that you cannot transfer the ÖH fee in advance.
