Some school leaving certificates do not meet our requirements

Some secondary school certificates from other countries are not equivalent to an Austrian leaving certificate. In these cases, supplementary examinations may be required (e.g., mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry) if you have been admitted to a degree programme. These examinations must be completed as part of the Vienna University Preparation Programme before you can begin your degree programme. Intensive courses are available from the Vienna University Preparation Programme to prepare for the supplementary exams.  To attend the Preparation Programme, you must enroll at BOKU University temporarily as a non-degree student until you have completed the necessary examinations.
