BSc Petroleum Engineering

Is there a selection process or quota system for applicants?

There is no selection process for the Bachelor program, and there is no limited number of students who will be admitted.

When are the deadlines to submit an application and when does the semester begin?

For dates and deadlines, please consult the official Montanuniversität Leoben Calendar. Foreign students should be aware that the admission and visa processes can take several months. For this reason, it is highly recommended to send your application six months in advance.

When do I have to pay the tuition fee and which are the methods of payment?

Tuition fees are due right after registering at the university and as early as possible. Take into account that you cannot register for lectures until you pay the tuition and/or student union fee. You can only pay via transfer or deposit in an Austrian bank.

I do not speak German. Can I be admitted to the Bachelor program?

Yes, you can, if you meet all the other requirements. The university offers German courses for that purpose.

Is it necessary to pass the IELTS or TOEFL test?

Since the BSc Petroleum Engineering is held in English, it is necessary to reach an advanced English proficiency level with IELTS (minimum score 6.0), TOEFL ibt (minimum score 80) or TOEFL pbt (minimum score 550).

Can I transfer credits from another university?

Yes, you can. This will be decided by the curricular commission.

Where can I find information about the equivalence of courses from BSc programs of other universities and Montanuniversität?

You have to apply for equivalency, and the curricular commission will decide.

Who can I talk to, if I have questions?

You can contact Office Manager Patrizia Haberl or International Student Coordinator Cornelia Praschag.
