After checking your documents, we will send you an admission letter. For further questions about the NARMEE programme and courses, please contact Ulrike Piringer narmee(at)
Further information on living in Austria and the study start will be provided by our Joint Study Exchange coordinator Eleonora CONI; jointstudy(at)


Apply for your Visa as soon as you get the admission letter as the processing can take some time! Keep this in mind if you plan to travel before the start of the semester.

Please be aware that Non-EU/EEA citizens also need a visa or residence permit.

According to a special agreement New Zealand citizens can stay in Austria up to 90 days without visa. After leaving the Schengen area (even for a weekend) the period of 90 days will start again.
