This official statement has to certify that the applicant is accepted for direct admission to the proposed study programme at that university for the same period as the period given in her/his application for the University in Austria.
  1. Students continuing their studies need an official statement from a university (REGISTRAR‘S OFFICE) in the country, which issued the high school leaving certificate, mentioned under 1.
