Just like submitting online applications for bachelor's, diploma and master's programmes, you can now apply online for doctoral programmes through LFU:online. The workflow remains basically the same: Choose your doctoral programme among the programmes offered by the University of Innsbruck and click Apply ONLINE. Just follow the instructions of the application assistant, upload all required documents and in the end send it to the Admission Department.

The Admission Department will process your application. In many cases it will be necessary to assess your prior studies - this will be performed by the competent curricular staff. The time to reach a decision on your application will depend on the complexity of your specific case.

When everything is done, you will be informed through LFU:online. If the decision is positive, you may enrol in the desired doctoral programme...
