Main artistic subject
In fields of study with a main artistic subject (Fine Arts, Stage Design, Design, Conservation and Restoration, Media Design) one of the prescribed courses from the main artistic subject must be completed each semester. An exception to this rule is permissible three times.
Warning: Non-observance of this rule leads to the termination of admission to study!
In the case of a negative assessment of a course from the main artistic subject, the course can be repeated - this is deemed an initial repeat examination. An eventual second or third repeat examination in commission form may also take place in one single examination procedure.
Use of main artistic subjects of other departments
During the course of study every student in diploma, bachelor, or master programmes has the opportunity to attend up to two semesters of artistic training in another field of study and to receive assessment, which will be automatically recognised in the main field of study. The required application - which must be approved by the supervising professors of both the main and secondary field of study - is available in the Office of Student and Academic Affairs.
- Diploma, bachelor, and master programmes
(except teacher training for the art education subjects)
- Teacher training for the art education subjects
- Doctoral programmes
The conclusion of every field of study offered by the University of Applied Arts is the degree, bachelor, or master examination, or the doctoral examination (Rigorosen).
More information about academic grades can be found to the right on this page in the field "Links". Past degree theses can be found in our database of graduation projects.
Changing the field of study
A change in the field of study is only possible with a preceding entrance examination for the desired field of study. In Fine Arts (Photography, Graphics, Painting), Design (Graphic Design, Graphics and Advertising, Landscape Design, Fashion), and Media Design (Transmedia Art, Digital Art), a change between the individual study areas is possible and can be applied for within the admission period.
In the course of study there can always be occasional changes in the curriculum and thereby changes in the prescribed courses.
Discontinuation of studies
Upon non-payment of the Austrian Student Union fee or the prescribed tuition fee, studies terminate with the end of the admission period (30 November and 30 April). A discontinuation of studies can also be actively announced at any point in the year. The notification of withdrawal from studies is the confirmation of this. It is available upon request in the Office of Student and Academic Affairs.
Loss of documents
In order to obtain a duplicate of student identification, a report of loss or theft must be submitted in the Office of Student and Academic Affairs. When you have lost your degree certificate or supplementary documents, an application for duplication must also be submitted. A form for this purpose is available in the Office of Student and Academic Affairs.
