Study in Austria for foreigners.
Let’s see what the wonderful Austria offers for us, foreign students. I offer you the most complete overview of this type of income.
In my opinion, in Austria there are 3 very powerful pluses for training. You can do it.
without exams without the knowledge of German, the cost of training is low or completely zero (however, every year private colleges, where the education costs around 5000 a year, become more and more private), you can apply at ANY age for admission to 3 programs (3 faculties), later choose, something one.
The truth is great? Now more.
First, the training is conducted in German. For admission, you will need a certificate of German proficiency at a minimum of B1, for the majority of # 8212; B2, for a number of professions, for example, philology, you need a ball C1 (the scale of language proficiency is the same for all EU countries, the level itself is quite complicated, you will have to read about what the DHS exam is).
Secondly. You can and without knowledge of the language. If the applicant does not know German at the time of enrollment, he / she enters the preparatory faculty first (minimum 6 months, maximum 2 years, until the level to be determined is reached on the passed exam). For the entire term, a student visa is granted, a person is considered a student of the chosen institution and program. The first year of the preparatory course is spent on studying the language, on the second, subjects are added by specialty.
Bachelor’s programs in English are almost non-existent, the competition is high, these are the faculties of Economics and Programming. Master in English & # 8212; the list is wider, but also very limited.
WHO CAN PURCHASE?
1. The most pleasant: there is NO age limit (as in all other universities in Europe!). Exception & # 8212; musical, sports and a number of creative professions, which when enrolled for a bachelor, the age is limited to 24-26 years.
2. You can enter the university right after school, having a certificate of completion. That is, you can immediately the year of graduation, universities accept applications for exams even before the receipt of the certificate.
3. You can apply 2 times a year! Summer stage & # 8212; before September 1 and winter & # 8212; before February 1. The exact dates for the start of applications should be specified on the education website of Austria. Usually this is April-May and January.
4. You can apply to have already been studying for 1 year at home, on an adjacent specialty, of course.
HOW MUCH IS?
Low cost of training (different universities have different rates) on average, about 600 euro per semester. For citizens of Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan about 370 euros per semester. Also for all, there is the possibility of free training as a reward for excellent grades. Many universities (for example, the Vienna Univer) offer free tuition for residents of the “poor” countries: from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, they pay only a fee of 17 euros.
Also, the possibility of free education is provided by many universities in Austria for EU residents, for example, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, for example, the same Vienna University. They also pay only the fee of the student committee & # 8212; about 17 euros per semester. Study in Austria for foreigners.
To get a student’s residence permit, you need 5,000 euros a year in your account, this is guaranteed money for living. They can be spent for a year. there are options “workarounds”, if there is no possibility at once, “uhnut & # 187; such amount of money to the account. This is at the very end of the article. Study in Austria for foreigners.
Another nice thing is & # 8212; There are no entrance exams, including the language proficiency test (however, you need a certificate from DHS), except for a number of specialties: pharmacy, medicine, biology, psychology, journalism, teaching, working with children, sports, music and creative & # 171; directing & # 187;). Exams are also available in a number of specialties when entering a master’s program, for example, the civil engineering program. Each university reserves the right to special competitive specialties to enter a competition on the basis of submitted works or interviews.
And what kind of education, where am I with him?
There is an opportunity to obtain all three levels of education: bachelor’s degree (regular level of training), master’s and postgraduate courses.
Bachelor (BSc) & # 8212; 6 semesters, graduates are awarded a bachelor’s degree.
Master (MSc) & # 8212; only after receiving a bachelor, 4 semesters. A master’s degree is assigned.
The doctor (PhD) – only after the master, 6 semesters, a degree of the doctor of sciences.
It is possible to get a diploma on an accelerated schedule, independently compiling a curriculum and an examination plan (as well as in almost all other EU HEIs).
Austrian universities are taught according to the Bologna education system, which means recognition of the diploma in all EU countries.
At the end of the university, the graduate has another half year of residence permit in the country & # 8212; this time is given in search of work. If the job is not found, alas, the country will have to leave. We remember that the graduate has an opportunity to look for work not only in Austria, but in any other EU country!
Choose a profession with the mind, if later you want to stay working in Austria, it is worth considering whether you will be in demand on the local labor market, having received a bachelor’s degree in Japanese political science, for example. Or, will you be able to compete with the local guys if you chose the extremely popular faculty & management, most likely having 80 applicants for 1 job, the employer will not choose a foreigner.
DO I NEED TO COMMUNICATE FOR HELP TO THE FIRM THAT OFFERS HELP IN ADMISSION?
This, guys, the question is very individual. A good half of us will definitely save their 3,000 euros (this is the minimum that the firm will take), but this will require perseverance in studying the pages in German (you can, through Google, be enough) and a certain experience of traveling abroad, at least to the Czech Republic-Poland, so that himself, without travel agents and parents, so that there is an understanding of what Europe is. To a young man without experience and knowledge of German, it is probably better through the firm (ask, I will give contacts of a reliable firm, take money, but has a huge experience in obtaining many papers that are difficult, it helps), but if there is no money (all the same 3000 a bit too much for a young age), then take paid consultations, find out the question in parts, something yourself, ask something from the knowledgeable (for example, me :))). And also, use the help (often even free) of those who have already passed this way (at the end of the article I give an example of one of these bloggers).
WHAT ARE MINUSES IN TRAINING IN AUSTRIA?
There is. But they are the same as in all other study programs abroad:
it is difficult to find a young foreigner without experience. Sometimes it’s very difficult. As a rule, Germany helps out. The time of training does not count toward the total length of stay in the country. Namely, & # 8212; having lived in the country for 5 years, a foreigner has the right to get permanent residence and relax, henceforth no one will chase him from the country, even if he does not have work and means of subsistence. As already noted, the years of study in these 5 years are not included, that is, at the end of the training, after finding a job, to begin the “experience” it will be necessary from scratch. studying abroad (or rather, living abroad) is quite expensive, not even looking at many free things & # 8212; for example, low cost of the training itself and student housing.
On the hard life of a student in Austria in detail:
For a stay in Austria, a student needs a minimum of 700 euros of their own funds per month. And honestly, it would be nice to have 1200, so as not to guess, eat lunch today or at dinner right away. A student visa entitles you to work 10 hours a week in the first courses and 20 hours a week in the last courses of the Master’s program. Studying in Austria has the right to open a business & # 187; and work freelancing (including tax deductions).
What you need for admission:
First, we apply for the general online system. We are waiting for a letter of confirmation of your application from the university, let’s call it the invitation letter & # 187 ;. Next, we go for the visa D (here their demands, about them later).
the presence of a certificate (for applying to the university, it is enough certificates from the school, the certificate is attached later) about the full secondary education or the document of its substitute (for master’s and doctoral programs, respectively, diploma on the availability of the relevant completed higher education in the homeland).
a certificate that the applicant is in his home country a student of an institute of a similar profile. the visa of the student, the visa D (it turns out in the homeland after the documents confirming that the applicant has applied for these programs are sent from the university) is medical insurance.
For minors, a notarized authorization from both parents to study at an Austrian university is required.
The second stage is & # 8212; on the spot, already in the country. This is the actual arrival in Austria and the registration of student residence permit on the spot, for this you will need:
a residence permit, a letter, an address where you will live. In other words, it could be a contract for hiring a dwelling or having it in the city of study or the right to receive it (for example, in the case of a hostel). From the detours: in the Polish church you can agree to rent a room, there and register. all originals of documents (starting from the birth certificate, change of surnames, certificate and so on) translated by a certified translator into German and (or) with an apostille. a certificate of 5,500 thousand euros on your account & # 8212; for living in the country. If you are more than 25 years old, then 9000. From workarounds & # 8212; sponsorship letter (someone sponsors your training, and guarantees to send you money)
And now the most important thing! Dreamed? Now look at the truth in person. Finance. How much do you need to move to Austria? For studying? 187 ;,
Approximate calculation of investment.
A blog that I can advise as an expert on Austria & # 187; – Germanblog.com & # 8212; It is maintained by the sane and “advanced” in all respects the guy who now lives in Austria, who has gone all the way on his own.
