Admission and enrollment Safety and Disaster Management

Admission requirements

Based on the idea that risks cannot be managed by a single discipline we want to facilitate multi-layered discussions in multidisciplinary study groups.

The prerequisite for admission to the Safety and Disaster Management master's program is the completion of a bachelor's degree or a degree of at least the same higher educational level at a recognized domestic or from a foreign post-secondary educational institution. In any case, the Bachelor's degree programs offered at the University of Leoben, as well as Bachelor's degree programs in law, cultural sciences, social sciences and economics, and Bachelor's degree programs in natural sciences and humanities are eligible. Proof of the general university entrance qualification is deemed to have been provided in any case by proving this admission requirement.

To legalize your documents, please contact the Austrian representative authority in your country.

Please find out in advance exactly how the documents have to be certified. It is important to know that legalization of documents can often take several months, so you should allow enough time for this. Please note that incorrectly legalized documents will slow down the admission process and therefore you may not be admitted to the desired semester.
