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

First you need to apply online for your intended study programme in time: programme profiles.

In order to be admitted to a study programme you have to register in person at the Admission Department (in the main university building) and bring along the official “Letter of Acceptance” (Mitteilung) of the Universität Innsbruck, your photo ID and everything asked for in the “Letter of Acceptance”.

 At the moment for Non-EEA-citizens it is not possible to apply online. Therefore you need to fill in the application form and need to send it with all required documents via post mail: https://www.uibk.ac.at/studium/anmeldung-zulassung/formulare/ansuchen-um-zulassung-zum-studium-v2011.pdf.


E-mail access and the LFU:online study platform

After the admission process you will be given your own username and password for the Universität Innsbruck’s IT services (e-mail account, LFU:online, eCampus). Via LFU:online you can print out documents such as registration confirmations and admission records, find out more about the courses available, sign up for lectures, fill in online applications and check your exam results. The platform also provides an overview of the student records kept by the university. Therefore, it is important that you keep your password secret at all times. LFU:online

Registration number

When first admitted as a student at an Austrian university or college of education you will receive a registration number which is on all university documents and must be used when applying for admission to any university in Austria.

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

With your registration number you will receive your student card. The Austrian Students’ Union fee and/or tuition fee must be paid when registering to study via:

  • bank transfer (please ask for the bank-slip with all the data)
  • bank card

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.
