Altogether, from 1 March to 15 July 2015, 4,480 students applied for admission to the study programmes listed above.

Due to the high number of registrations (2,529) a written admission test had to be carried out for the Biology, Computer Science, Pharmacy and Psychology study programmes. Altogether, 1,584 persons took the tests. Since the actual number of participants in the admission tests for Biology, Computer Science and Pharmacy were found to be below the maximum number of places, all participants in the test can be admitted to these study programmes at the University of Innsbruck for the academic year 2015/2016, providing they meet the general requirements according to §§ 63ff of the Universities Act 2002.

If admission does not take place in the winter semester of 2015/2016 or in the summer semester of 2016, the university place expires. This applies to all the study programmes listed above.
