Admissions procedure for applicants to our Master’s degree programs

Have you fulfilled the admissions requirements for a Master’s degree at FHWien der WKW? Then nothing is standing in your way to applying. The following application steps are waiting for you:

The application period for winter semester 2018/2019 is from January 15, to May 14, 2018.

You will receive your personal login data via e-mail once you have registered. With the login data, you will have access to our online application form. This form should be printed out once you have filled it out.

You will need various copies of documents as well as your printed and signed application form. You can find out which documents need to be filled out and what your letter of motivation should contain in the checklist for Master’s students.

Applicants with a foreign degree must have their documents translated into German or English by a court certified translator. The relevant rules of certification for your country can be found here (in German) Beglaubigungsliste Hochschulwesen des BMWF. Determining the equivalence of certificates/degrees from foreign countries can take up to three weeks. For this reason we recommend that you send in the relevant documentation in a timely manner.

For applicants from the following countries only legalized final documents can be accepted:

  • The whole of Africa (including North Africa and West Africa, i.e. Egypt and Libya)
  • Bangladesh
  • China
  • Iran
  • Kosovo
  • Mongolia
  • Pakistan
  • Sri Lanka
  • Vietnam

“Legalization of diplomas and certificates” is necessary:

  1. Authentication of the certificates by the responsible ministry (for example the education ministry) in the applicant’s home country
  2. Supplementary authentication from the foreign ministry in the applicant’s home country
  3. An apostille from the Austrian representation authority in the applicant’s home country

Chinese applicants have the possibility to use the academic test center in Peking (APS Peking). All documents required for admissions can be authenticated there. Appointments take place once a semester within an examination week. Details can be found by clicking on the following link (in German and Mandarin):  click here

Applicants from Egypt should apply at the Austrian embassy in Cairo.
