Registration for the entrance exam procedure of persons in the University Preparation Programme (VWU)

 

You are currently attending a course in the University Preparation Programme of the Vienna Universities (VWU) and are going to complete it before or during the upcoming winter semester?

Register for the entrance exam procedure as described below.

In case you have a non-EU/EEA secondary-school leaving certificate and you do not yet have an admission letter for the degree programme for which you would like to complete the entrance exam procedure, please apply for admission again.

 

1. Online Self-Assessment

Complete the Online Self-Assessment within the registration period. This is the first step in the entrance exam procedure. After completion of the OSA you will receive the "OSA-code". If you have it sent to your e-mail account, this code will be centrally saved.

There is no OSA for the bachelor programmes Psychology and Sport Science.

 

2. Login to u:space

Do not create another u:account, please use your existent UserID for the login. In case you forgot your login data, contact the Helpdesk of the Vienna University Computer Center.

 

3. Choose your degree programme

Then go to "Administration > Admission to degree programmes" and select the degree programme for which you would like to complete the entrance exam procedure, just as you have already done when applying for admission.

 

4. Complete documents

Documents which have previously been approved by the Admission Office (status: "approved") do not have to be uploaded again.

  1. Select "Yes, my German knowledge is sufficient. I want to participate in the entrance exam procedure for the academic year 2019/20."
  2. Select the type of document "Certificate of proficiency in German at level A2" and upload your admission letter for this degree programme (if your applied with a non-EU/EEA secondary-school leaving certificate) or your current student record sheet (if you applied with an EU/EEA secondary-school leaving certificate).
  3. If your secondary-school leaving certificate is from a non-EU/EEA country, select the type of document "Special university entrance qualification ("Studienplatznachweis")" and upload your admission letter for this degree programme again. 
  4. Insert the OSA code, which you receive after having completed the Online Self-Assessment (this is not necessary for the bachelor programmes Psychology and Sport Science).

 

4. Pay the exam fee

Once you have added all these documents, click on "continue to submission" and then on "pay and submit application". Pay the exam fee of 50 Euro by credit card or eps online payment (which is only possible if you have an Austrian bank account).

You have successfully registered for the entrance exam procedure if your status in u:space is "submitted".

Then proceed to the next steps of the entrance exam procedure.
