University of Linz: Assessment Testing for Graduating High School Students
Students still in secondary school and close to graduation can take an assessment test offered by the Office of Academic Advising at the Institute for Pedagogy and Psychology at the University of Linz. The assessment test is offered annually in February and is free of charge for students soon-to-be graduating from high school. The assessment test provides an opportunity for students to explore their interests and consider what to study at the Johannes Kepler University Linz (aside from Medicine).

The Assessment Test Consists of Three Steps:
After registering by entering your name and e-mail address, you will automatically receive an e-mail containing an access link.

The online application takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes to complete; in addition, you will be asked to answer a few brief questions regarding your choice of major.
You can sign up online beginning September 21, 2016.
After successful registration you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing a registration number. Please take this confirmation to the Johannes Kepler University Linz. You may only take part in assessment testing at the University of Linz (step 3) if you have this confirmation.
3. On-Site Sessions at the JKU

You will receive feedback regarding the test results only if you have taken all of the tests at the University of Linz (on-site phase).
