Brief Description

Compulsory pre-registration as a requirement for the admission to an academic study program

Prior to your initial admission to a university degree program at BOKU, an online pre-registration via the internet is required. You can register from your own PC at home or at one of the information terminals at BOKU (also directly next to the Student Registration Office - Studienservices).

If you have previously studied at BOKU, a pre-registration is not required. Your data has already been recorded into the system (e.g. transition from a Bachelor to a Master degree program, etc.)

The application is available in German and English.

When can I pre-register for studies?

The deadlines for pre-registration and admission to a study program at BOKU can be found in the time table of the Study Services.

You can register for an account outside of the deadlines, but pre-registration itself can only be done during the given deadlines.

You can find the dates and timetable of the academic year here: BOKU Timetable


Pre-registration for the winter term 2024/25 starts on June 11th 2024.

How do I fill out the pre-registration?

In the documentation you will find detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures and help, answering many questions.


Pre-Registration for New Students

What to do next ...

These are the steps following your pre-registration:

Information on the photo ...

Your student card is an official identification document. Accordingly, the same rules apply for selecting the photo to be used. The person must be clearly recognizable and not be wearing any headgear (caps, hoods, etc.). The photo must be taken from the front and show the entire head; anything below the shoulders cannot be included in the picture. Further information on valid passport photos can also be found at: 

Pre-registration for non-Austrian citizens

If you have acquired your higher education entrance qualification (general qualification for university entrance, university entrance qualification) in another state than Austria, please select
"25 Foreign school leaving examination"
from the list for the school type.

You can then select the correct country of issue (e.g. Germany, France, etc.).
