Supplementary Examination German


New regulations for students in the VWU

The University of Vienna no longer accepts ÖSD certificates from students that are already registered in the university preparation programme. Due to changes in law concerning foreigners, only the supplementary examination German (EPD), which has to be passed directly at the VWU, can be accepted once you are participating in the VWU. With this step the University of Vienna prevents problems occurring during extension of your residence permit and implements a decision of the higher administrative court.

Once you have been admitted to the preparation programme as a non-degree students, only the supplementary examination in German (Ergänzungsprüfung Deutsch, EPD) of the preparation programme is accepted as proof.
