The way to admission
Requirements & Registration
The prerequisite for admission to a bachelor's degree program (BA) is passing the artistic admission examination. For this, an online application is first required, during which an application video must often also be submitted. If the application video is evaluated positively, an invitation to the admission examination is issued.
Admission to a Master's program (MA) requires, in addition to passing the artistic admission examination, the completion of a Bachelor's program (BA) in a relevant subject at a recognized Austrian or foreign post-secondary educational institution (e.g. university, college).
In order to be able to start a teacher training program in secondary education (general education) in the Central Cluster, students must first pass a pedagogical aptitude test (general admission procedure). By the time of application and registration for the general admission procedure, the online self-assessment must have been completed, the cost contribution paid and the registration for an appointment for the Electronic Admission Test made - details can be found at https://lehrerin-werden.at
For the teaching subjects offered at the Mozarteum University ( Fine Arts Education, Design: Technology.Textiles, Music Education and Instrumental Music Education) an artistic admission examination is also required.
Admission to a postgraduate university course (PGL) requires the completion of a subject-related master's degree or diploma program at a recognized domestic or foreign postsecondary educational institution in the respective central artistic subject. Admission with a pedagogical degree such as teaching or instrumental & vocal pedagogy is NOT possible. In addition, the prerequisite for admission to a course of study is the successful completion of an artistic admission examination.
The examination of the pre-study documents can take up to 4 weeks! Early registration is therefore recommended.
Registration for a study program is only possible if a degree for this study program has not yet been obtained.
Details on the respective admission procedures, the admission-relevant bachelor studies for the registration for master studies and information on the required repertoire can be found at the respective study program.
Registration takes place during the application period via the registration portal for applicants.
Necessary documents for online registration for Master's programs:
- BA certificate or degree certificate of a relevant study program if the study program has already been completed
- Current confirmation of enrollment, if the study program has not yet been completed (the certificate must be submitted by the time of enrollment!)
- Overview of subjects and grades (Transcript of Records) of the BA studies

The documents can be uploaded as PDF in the application form.

Certification & translation of foreign language documents
Certification of a document serves to confirm the authenticity of affixed seals and signatures. Whether the documents with which the application for admission to studies is submitted must be certified and translated depends on the country in which the school/study was completed. Diplomatic certification must be done before translation and must be affixed to the original documents. Only then can the application for admission to studies be submitted.
All documents required for the admission procedure must be translated (after certification) if they are not issued in German or English. This translation must be done by a court-certified translator. The translation may only be made after the certification, as the certification stamps must also be translated.
Documents from those countries with which Austria has concluded a bilateral certification agreement are exempt from any certification (documents must, however, be submitted in the original or as a certified copy).
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Czech Republic
By directive of the Rectorate, documents from all EU/EEA countries and Switzerland are also exempt from any certification.
Documents from the contracting states of the so-called "Hague Authentication Convention" must be certified with an apostille. To have a document certified by an apostille, contact the foreign ministry of the issuing country. In some countries, the Ministry of Justice or the Ministry of Education is responsible for this. The apostille must always be presented in the original and must certify the signature on the original document, not the signature of the notary.
A list of the Contracting States to the Hague Authentication Convention and the authorities responsible for issuing the apostille can be found here.
Note: The linked list also partly lists those states whose documents are exempt from any authentication. If your state is listed above, no apostille is necessary.
Full diplomatic certification is required for documents from all those countries with which there is no bilateral certification agreement and which are also not contracting states to the Hague Certification Convention.
For a full diplomatic legalization of your documents
- first of all the Austrian certification endorsements of the Ministry of Education
- the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (or in some countries the Ministry of Justice) of the issuing country are required.
Finally, the Austrian representative authority (embassy or consulate) responsible for the country in which the documents are issued must certify these endorsements. Only original documents can be certified. For some countries the over-certification by the Austrian representative authority is suspended. In this case, you need the Austrian certification endorsements of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
German & English skills
Depending on the study program or course, various German language skills are required for admission. All those whose first language is not German must either pass a German language test as part of the admission examination or submit a corresponding certificate by a defined date.

Preparation aids for the partial examination Music Theory and Aural Training
In the file attached below you will find templates for preparing for the Music Theory entrance examination. These are divided into three parts: I. Basics, II. Composition and III. Aural Training.
The basics relate in part to the written as well as the oral examination, whereby the text specifies exactly what should be paid attention to. This knowledge is absolutely necessary for the candidates. Part II - Tonsatz - concerns the written examination in the task - Suspending the basso continuo. An extended cadenza should be performed by the candidates at the piano during the oral examination, not in C major and A minor. In Part III - Aural Training - orientation examples are given for the dictations in the oral examination. It is helpful for candidates to analyse, play and sing these examples.
