  4. For the joint study programmes of the University of Innsbruck and the UMIT – Private University for Health Sciences, Medical Informatics and Technology Gmbh (Bachelor’s and Master’s Programme in Mechatronics, Bachelor’s Programme in Economy, Health and Sports Tourism) an application can only be filed at the University of Innsbruck.

  5. Only examinations which are registered in LFU:online with semester hours/ECTS-Credits and grades can be considered. Courses where the student has been awarded the grade "SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED" cannot be considered. The grade point average is calculated based on the individual grades. Overall grades are not used when calculating the grade point average.

  6. Examinations that appear under the category "Exams without allocation" are also included in the calculation.
  7. The regular duration of studies plus one semester (extension of studies) set out in the curriculum must not be exceeded. Students who work as student representatives are entitled to one additional semester extension of studies. Confirmation from the Austrian Students’ Union that a student has held a position as a student representative can be uploaded to LFU:online.
    Working and/or enrollment in a second study programme are no reasons for exceeding the maximum study time.
