Asylum seekers and recognized refugees: MORE-Initiative

The University of Innsbruck is part of the MORE-Initiative by uniko (Universitätenkonferenz). Recognized refugees and asylum seekers are allowed to enroll at a university as non-degree students. Student fees are waived. Admission is possible until the end of the extension period (30.11. and 30.04., respectively). An important goal of this program is the preparation for a regular study (bridging function).

The Admission Departement in cooperation with the ÖH offers support with enrolment to participants interested in the MORE-Initiative, and shares information about university offers:

  • Free use of the University and State library of Innsbruck (student card)

  • Use of the University IT-infrastructure (account with mailing address)

  • Use of the sports-institute of the University (USI) at student tariffs (1 indoor course for free)

  • German language course at the ISI at a student price (280 €)


As part of the OLC (Open Learning Center) project, BFI Tirol offers free educational and learning support for people seeking higher education. The project is also aimed at asylum seekers and persons entitled to asylum.
