* In several countries, acquiring an Austrian residence permit takes longer than usual (up to 9 months) due to a lengthy document legalization procedure. Therefore, applicants from these countries will, in case of their acceptance, receive deferral of admission to fall 2024 to ensure that they have sufficient time to obtain the necessary documents for the residence permit and study visa. This deferral is automatic (i.e. need not be requested) and mandatory (i.e. cannot be declined without declining the offer itself.)
