A step in the online application is also the selection of the desired admission date and the type of admission interview (online via MS Teams or in person at the FH Kufstein Tirol).

If there are several admission dates to choose from for the desired degree program, we recommend registering for the first admission date, as this is when the chances of getting a place are highest.

You will then receive an e-mail with a summary of your information.

Please note that the online application is designed for one-time use per person. If you wish to apply for more than one degree program, multiple applications are possible. Once the online application process has been completed, changes can only be submitted via the application hotline ( or +43 5372 71819-500).

The prerequisite for admission to the admission interview is the fulfillment of the admission requirements.

At the latest 3 days before the selected admission date, the applicants will be informed about the detailed procedure.

The 20-minute admission interview takes place online via Microsoft Teams or in person at the FH Kufstein Tirol.

During the interview, the program team will gain an impression of the applicant's motivation and suitability for the program. In German and English, the applicants are given the opportunity to present themselves, discuss their motivation for studying, their personal plans for the future, and much more.

Information on the results will be provided within 14 days of the interview.
