Pre-registration and admission


Online pre-registration for your academic studies must be completed via the internet prior to your personal registration.



Currently, there is a admission procedure only for the bachelor's programme "Lebensmittel- und Biotechnologie" and "Umwelt- und Bioressourcenmanagement" ("Aufnahmeverfahren").

In order to register for any of the university degree programs at BOKU you must come to the admission office (study services) in person during the admission period. The admission period is subdivided as follows:

  • admission period for Bachelor studies: 20.6.-5.9. (winter term) and 9.1.-5.2.(summer term)
  • admission period for Master or Doctor studies: 20.6.-5.9. (winter term) and 9.1.-5.2.(summer term)

Admission to bachelor programs is only possible during the admission period. In specific exceptional cases registration is also possible until the end of the admission period for Master studies. Prospective students from non-EU countries must register within the admission period for Bachelor studies - regardless of whether they apply for a bachelor, master or doctor program.

When an application is required, please consider the processing time of up to 5 weeks.
