Banner Fees and Funding, showing 100 dollar note as an incomplete puzzle.

Fees

For more information, see the University's fees information pages


Funding and Financial Aid

In addition to the tuition fee/Students' Union fee, you will have to cover other costs as well, for your living expenses (accommodation, food, mobility, etc.) and study-related expenses (books, writing material, etc.). The University's International Office provides cost of living estimates

Austria offers needs-based financial aid in the form of study grants, depending on the financial situation of students' families. The Study Grant Authority is responsible for any type of information, applications, appeals and intervention regarding questions concerning study grants, study allowances, transport cost allowance, grants upon completion of studies, insurance cost subsidies, mobility grant and grants for study abroad. Since the available support depends on your individual situation, you should always contact the Study Grant Authority for more information. You can also consult the Austrian Student Ombudsman.  

You can also search for further study grants. (The master's programme for P&E might not have been added yet)

Additionally, there are also a lot of student discounts available.
