Position Indication:


Admission to a Bachelor's Degree or Diploma Degree Program

Students with international (non-Austrian) academic qualifications and certification applying for admission to JKU must provide the following:

1. Completed "Application for Admission” form

2. Secondary school transcripts containing a list of all completed subjects and grades

3. If necessary, proof and/or certification of completed university qualifying examinations*

4. If necessary, proof and/or certification of already completed pre-studies (such as transcripts, conferral degree, curriculum)*

5. Proof of special university qualifications: confirmation that the academic study program the applicant is applying for in Austria could also be completed in the country that issued the applicant's school-leaving examination certificate. This does not have to be verified if the secondary school certificate was awarded/issued in an EU or EEA country.

* Depending on the country that issued the secondary school certificates, the Johannes Kepler University may require proof of acceptance to a university - and/or related pre-study programs - in order to enroll at the JKU.
