The application period for winter semester 2020/2021 starts on January 8, 2020.
You will receive your personal login data via e-mail once you have registered. With the login data, you will have access to our online application form. This form should be printed out once you have completed it.
You will need various copies of documents as well as your printed and signed application form. You can find out which documents you need in the checklist for Bachelor’s students.
Applicants with a foreign degree must have their documents translated into German or English by a court certified translator. Please respect the relevant rules of certification for your country. Determining the equivalence of certificates/degrees from foreign countries can take up to three weeks. For this reason we recommend that you send in the relevant documentation in a timely manner.
Together with a printout of the application form, all application documents (loose, not stuck together in any way) should be sent by mail to:
FHWien der WKW
Information and Admissions Center
Währinger Gürtel 97
The postmark is used as proof of the date of mailing.
Computer-based admissions test
Once we have received your documents, you will receive an e-mail requesting that you log in and choose a date for your test. The computer-based test lasts for approximately three hours. Please choose a date that suits you (test dates are offered on a first come – first served basis). For organizational reasons it is not possible to change the date of your test.
Contents of the computer-based admissions test:
- Understanding of mathematical logic
- Verbal intelligence/creativity
We see ourselves as the leading university of applied sciences for management & communication. Therefore, you can expect a particularly challenging admissions procedure.
Since we want to know what potential you have, there is also a special feature in the tasks. The difficulty of the tasks will adapt to your performance as you take the computer-based test. This means that you will always be challenged by the tasks. Please do not be discouraged by this! This will give us a more accurate picture of your potential and talents.
Seize the opportunity to show us what potential and strengths you already have!
Information about the duration of the test:
Please note, the computer-based test must be completed within a time period of two and a half hours, plus an extension period of max. 15 minutes. At the end of the 2 hours and 45 minutes the test will be stopped by the trainer. Tests that are not completed will still be marked. Keeping track of time is the responsibility of the student.
It will be made clear that the different test blocks take different amounts of time.
By choosing a date for the test, you are confirming your agreement with this process.
Degree program specific admissions procedure
If you receive a confirmation for the degree program-specific part for both Marketing & Sales and Communications (Example: Priority 1: Marketing & Sales Full-time, Priority 2: Communication Management Full-time), then please select a course-specific date for your first priority.
After successfully completing the entrance test, you will receive an e-mail that you can now choose an appointment for the study-program specific aptitude test (consisting of a presentation and an interview). Both take place in one day. Please note that this will take approximately 20 minutes.
For those applying from outside of Austria the computer-based test and presentation/interview will take place either on the same day or, in certain cases, on subsequent days.
