How does the admission process work at the University of Innsbruck?

If you wish to study at the University of Innsbruck you have to register at the Admission Department (in the main university building) and bring along your photo ID and your school leaving certificate. In order to shorten the processing time in the Admission Department you can enter your personal data in advance using the university’s online study platform called LFU:online. However, you still have to register at the Admission Department in person in order to be admitted to study.

Students who have already been admitted to study at the University of Innsbruck and wish to study another subject can fill out an online application at LFU: online. This means that they do not need to go to the Admission Department in person. However, if necessary the Admission Department may request further documentation and ask the student to come to the Admission Department in person.

More detailed information about the admission processes and requirements for the various study programmes offered at the University of Innsbruck can be found in the online programme profiles.

Registration number

If you are being admitted to study at an university in Austria for the first time you will receive a registration number. This seven-digit number will appear on all university documentation and must be used when applying for admission to any university in Austria.

Paying the Austrian Students' Union fee and/or tuition fee

During the admission process you will receive your student card. The Austrian Students’ Union fee and/or tuition fee must be paid when registering to study. This fee cannot be paid in cash. Instead, it must be paid in one of the following ways:

  • bank transfer
  • bank card (using maestro)
Once the fee has been paid a date will be automatically printed onto the student card. This is the date until which the student card is valid.
