Visa / Residence Permit

If you need to apply for your residence permit in your home country before arriving in Austria, we strongly advise you to apply prior to March 1st since it can take up to six months to get it approved.  US citizens can enter the EU and remain in the EU for three months without an entry visa and can apply for their residence permit after their arrival in Austria.  Our colleagues will help guide you through the application procedure.  Please contact us at admissions(a)

Admissions Committee

The admissions committee meets regularly to discuss each application and chooses students for admission primarily on academic grounds. It is best to get your application in as soon as possible, because we have a limited amount of space each year.
