Studying at the University of Graz for the first time: Did you get your university entrance qualification in Austria or outside of Austria?

University entrance qualification = Matura, school-leaving examination, university entrance qualification, university degree

University entrance qualification in Austria

With the university entrance qualification in Austria, you automatically prove that you have the necessary language skills in German. This makes it easier to check whether you can study here.

You graduated in Austria but do not have EU/EEA/Swiss citizenship? Then there is a small difference in the application process and a different tuition fee.
