Admission procedureJust like Austrian applicants, international applicants have to take part in the official MCI admission procedure and will be informed about the results after completion of the same.
Dates & deadlinesThe same deadlines apply to international applicants as to Austrian candidates. Considering that the preparation for studying at MCI requires more time for international students, as they have to search for accommodation, apply for a visa, etc., we recommend an early application.
CostsNo additional costs arise for applicants from the EU, EEA, and Switzerland in the course of application.
