Students from non-anglophone countries must also submit proof of English proficiency. Applicants also need to include a photocopy of their passport.  Students are generally notified of admissions results within 8 weeks of the application deadline.

What is student life like?

150,000 people live in Innsbruck, and 30,000 of their study at one of the five colleges, entrepreneurial schools, and universities. Some say that the "Capital of the Alps" is one of the best places in Europe to combine studying with an active and rewarding lifestyle.  In any case, it is unique: urban and alpine, with an excellently preserved historic core, surrounded by a huge mountain backdrop that gives the city an almost intimate feel. The university city of Innsbruck also unites two worlds. The urban world in the valley merges with the sensational, surrounding mountain world to form a wonderful habitat that is appreciated by all who frequent Innsbruck. Inssbruckers have sports running through their veins it would appear. Newcomers are quick to realize how sports-oriented the population is and are happy to let themselves be infected with this spirit. Including the Youth Olympic Games of 2012, Innsbruck is the only city in the world where the Olympic torch has been lit four times (Olympic Winter Games 1964 and 1976, Winter Paralympics 1984). Furthermore, the annual Bergisel-jumping, the Air & Style Event, the UCI Road World Championships as well as many other activities and events reflect the athletic competence of Innsbruck. Student associations are open to university students and alumni. They are committed to the principle of a life-long friendship and common ideals and form a traditional part of university life in Austria.

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
