Admission procedures according to § 14 Universities Act 2002 - information on the admission procedures for the Academic Year 2015/2016

 Dear prospective students!

An amendment to the Universities Act 2002 has led to the creation of multi-stage selection procedures for certain study programmes that are subject to particularly high levels of demand. These new selection procedures have come into force in the winter semester 2013/14. That means that there is a limited number of places available on certain study programmes. The number of places available at each Austrian university is determined by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Selection procedures will be carried out for the following study programmes at the University of Innsbruck for the academic year 2015/2016:
