PLEASE NOTE: Before you go to register at the Study services, you have to complete the  BOKUonline pre-registration
Please do not fill out the pre-registration before the registration period starts, otherwise it will count for the previous semester and will be deleted.
Students, who attend a Bachelor full degree (no exchange students) have to pre-register within the registration period. Master and exchange students are able to pre-register later.

Here you will find more information about the general deadlines.

  • Upload a photo
  • Fill in your nationality, otherweise you will be asked for an Austrian social security number

Please bring the following documents with you to the Study services:

  • Your letter of admission („Bescheid über Zulassung zum Studium“) that was sent to your home address as soon as the application forms were complete and in order
  • A valid passport or identity card

At the Study services you have to pay the student union fee of approximately € 19,00 by bank card (Maestro, Visa, Master card, ...). If you do not have a cash card, you can ask you Buddy to go with you to the Study services and pay with his/her card. (If you pay online or with a payment form, you can only activate your BOKUonline account and register for courses approx. 5 days after having paid. Some courses might be booked out by then!)

The student union fee is obligatory. Enrolment is only valid after payment. If you do not pay the student union fee, you can not register for courses and will not get any certificates.
Please be aware that also students doing an internship or working on their thesis have to pay the student union fee. Otherwise you will not get a confirmation of your stay!

After enrolment you will receive your BOKUcard (= student identity card). Furthermore, you will get an e-mail address and a user account for BOKUonline and the computer labs.
If you are staying in Vienna for the whole academic year, another payment notification will be sent to your BOKU e-mail address at the end of the winter semester. Then you have to pay the student union fee for the summer semester.
When you first register as a student in Austria, you will receive your personal registration number („Matrikelnummer“). This number will be yours for the rest of your academic career in Austria, even if you change universities. Every letter and report will carry this number.
The BOKU card is the official confirmation that you are attending BOKU and it must be given to you personally. Confirmations of enrolment/continuation ("Inskriptionsbestätigung") can be printed via BOKUonline.
