Information about the ÖH-fee and the tution fee

Only ÖH-fee at the start

Degree students with a citizenship from EU/EEA/CH and students of equal status who enrol for a Bachelor’s, Diploma, Master’s or Doctoral programme, only have to pay the ÖH-fee at the start of their new study programme. For registration of the continuation of studies, students who are within the designated study duration (+ tolerance) must also pay only the ÖH-fee for each semester in time.

ÖH-Fee for the winter semester 2019/2020: € 20.20  


Who has to pay tuition fee?

Tuition fee must be paid if 

  • the non-contributory time (designated duration of a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral programme or one part of the studies of a Diploma programme + two tolerance semesters) has been exceeded
  • if students have an obligation to pay the fee because of their citizenship
  • if students pursue non-degree programmes (e.g. individual courses, university entrance qualification examination)

The tuition fee amounts to € 363.36 per semester (AUT, EU/EEA, CH) and for citizens of third countries € 726.72 per semester. In addition to the tuition fee, the ÖH-fee must be always paid (see above).

If you pay within the period of grace, the tuition fee increases by 10% for degree students with EU/EEA or CH citizenship. 
 

   Student who have equal status to citizens of EU/EEA/CH citizens:

  Degree students from third countries:

  • Degree students from third countries who are not covered by the Austrian Regulation on Eligible Groups of Persons and to whom no international treaty applies and who have a residence permit acc. to §64 of the Settlement and Residence Act (NAG) have to pay a tuition fee of € 726.72 (plus ÖH-fee) from the first semester. For these students, the tuition fee does not increase if it is paid within the period of grace.

  Degree students from developing countries:

Degree students from developing countries are automatically exempted from paying tuition fees by the system. They do not have to apply for exemption. Please note, however, that a change of citizenship must be reported immediately.

  Students, who are enrolled in a joint study programme of the University of Innsbruck and the UMIT Private University:

Students, who are enrolled in a joint study programme of the University of Innsbruck and the UMIT Private University in Hall, are subject to tuition fees at the UMIT. More information can be found on the respective study programme’s profile page or at the website of the UMIT reps. 

 

Exemption from tuition fee due to equality of EU/EEA citizens

EU/EAA-citizens are exempt from paying tuition fee during the minimum study time + two tolerance semesters. Non-EU/EEA-citizens who want to get equal status must present proof of this equality with EU/EEA-citizens.

The following students can present this proof:

  • Students, who are granted the same access rights to the labour market as Austrians, based on a contract of public international law (e.g. convention refugees)
  • Students with an “EC permanent residence” permit
  • Non-EU/EEA citizens with other residence permits (Attention: No equality and exemption of tuition fees is possible for holders of a student residence permit.)
  • Students who fall under the Austrian Regulation on Eligible Groups of Persons (Attention: No equality and exemption of tuition fees for students who are self-insured in Austria)

Reimbursement of the ÖH-fee

The ÖH-fee does not remain at the university, but is forwarded to the Austrian Students’ Union (ÖH). 

The ÖH-fee can be reimbursed upon application

  • if the study programme is finished or stopped and there is no admission to an Austrian University or
  • if the ÖH-fee has been paid at the University of Innsbruck and at another Austrian university/university of applied sciences for the same semester.

The application must be filed at the ÖH.

If the ÖH-fee was accidentally paid twice, it will only be forwarded once to the ÖH. In this case, the application for reimbursement must be filed not at the ÖH, but at the university – see “Reimbursement of tuition fee”.
