Change of degree programme

You are currently studying at the University of Vienna and would like to change your degree programme? Your steps in the admission procedure and the application period depend on the type of degree programme.

General information regarding the change of a degree programme

You can change your degree programme as often as you want to, according to the University of Vienna. However, a change of degree programme might impact your family allowance and/or study grant. Please contact the responsible authority (local Tax Office or Austrian Study Grant Authority) if you have any questions in this regard. Clarify the consequences on a potential residence permit with the Immigration Office (MA 35) or the responsible district commission ("Bezirkshauptmannschaft").

From winter semester 2022/23 the following applies: You have to achieve at least 16 ECTS for each bachelor/diploma programme you are admitted to within the first four semesters of being admitted to the degree programme. If this is not the case, the degree programme will be closed.
