When, where and what you’ll need

There are plenty of little bureaucratic stumbling blocks that can make studying abroad harder. To make sure you master the first hurdle of registration, we’ll show you what you’ll need and how exactly you have to go about it – step by step.


You have to register for your German Course for the Viennese University Preparation Program in person at die Berater®.

What you need to register:
  • University admissions letter
  • Passport
  • student data protocol (Studienblatt) of winter semester 2019/20 (not for new students)
  • €1,204.00 for your course fees + € 26 for materials (copies, work sheets etc.); you can either pay in cash or by card. Payment by installments is not accepted.
  • You will receive a registration confirmation for the course
  • You will receive a placement appointment for the allocation of your German course at die Berater®

Next steps:
