Universities in Austria offer degree programmes and non-degree programmes. Students may be admitted on to a degree programme by providing proof of general eligibility for university entrance and any special qualification required for a given subject.
The following documents can be provided as proof of generaleligibility for university entrance:
Austrian school leaving certificate
another Austrian certificate showing that the student is entitled to study on a particular programme offered at the university
overseas certificate equivalent to one of these Austrian certificates
certificate confirming completion of a course of study lasting at least three years at a recognised Austrian or overseas post-secondary educational institution
certificate confirming completion of a university-level course lasting at least three years.
Students cannot be considered for admission on to the same programme of study by more than one university in Austria at a time.
If the overseas certificates are not equivalent to the Austrian higher secondary school leaving certificate in terms of content or requirements, the student must sit the supplementary examinations requested by the rectorate prior to admission to confirm that their academic level is equivalent to the Austrian secondary school leaving certificate.
In addition to providing proof of general eligibility for entrance to the university, students must fulfil any special admission requirements required by their programme of study, as well as proof of their right to direct admission. This proof consists of a certificate confirming general eligibility for university entrance issued by the relevant state. This regulation does not apply to applicants with EU citizenship. There is no need to provide proof of a university place.
The additional examination for Latin must be taken before passing the first diploma examination or the Bachelor’s programme.
Students who have successfully completed at least ten hours per week of Latin at secondary level are not required to take the supplementary examination.

Bachelor’s programmes English and American Studies German Studies History Philosophy Romance Studies Slavonic Studies
Teacher training courses French History, Social Studies and Citizenship Italian Spanish
Admission on to non-degree programmes
The term ‘non-degree programmes’ refers to continuing education courses and individual classes in specialist subjects.
Those who would like to take specific classes offered at the university are admitted as non-degree students. Non-degree students are entitled to take supplementary examinations and examinations connected to a continuing education course but are not, however, able to complete a degree programme.
Those interested in taking a continuing education course at the university are admitted as non-degree students subject to specific requirements, such as course regulations, curriculum, etc.
Students currently taking a degree programme at AAU may take a non-degree programme.
