Universität Innsbruck

Dear Aurora students!
The course you are interested in is open to all Aurora partner Universities students and therefore follows its own registration procedure. In order to successfully register for this course as a student from one of the Aurora partner universities, we have compiled some information for you. Please read it carefully. You will find the registration link (from 16th of August) for your Aurora courses below. 

In order to be able to attend the course as a student and to receive a certificate upon successful completion, you will be enrolled and registered for a course as a "non-degree seeking student", if you have not already registered for a course at Universität Innsbruck.

If courses have a limit on the number of participants (e.g. interactive formats such as excursions, practical courses, seminars, lectures combined with exercises, etc.) a ranking of applications will be necessary. This is done - among other things - according to the principle "first come - first served", provided that the documents are submitted in full. Please refer to the description of the respective courses in the course catalog if this is applicable.

 Detailed information on the  Process sequence incl. deadline
