Financing your Ph.D. study

The admission to the doctoral program does not imply that your Ph.D. studies are also fully funded because the resources of the project to which you are applying determine the amount of funds available for financing. Therefore, we encourage you to become well informed about your financing options before the start of your doctorate. However, our faculty do their absolute best to secure full funding for all their Ph.D. students.

If you sign your contract as a Ph.D. student with MedUni Vienna, you will be employed as a scientific employee and remunerated in accordance with the  collective agreement  for academic university staff (Level B1, equal to 30 hours per week). Projects funded by the FWF grant have their own funding regulations; please consult their  website  for more detailed information. Your supervisor can inform you about your contract and salary terms once you’ve reached a supervision agreement. To give you a better understanding of how much income you might need to live in Vienna, we recommend you to read  OeAD's article on living costs.  

Health insurance and pension

Due to your employment in Austria, you are automatically covered with health insurance and a pension.  Austria has a good and safe health system to which you have full access with your e-card . There is also the option to co-insure your partner and children if necessary.

If you have no employment contract, it is your responsibility to ensure you are covered by  health insurance.

PhD in Austria Austria is an attractive country for international PhD students

Austria is home to over 50 institutions of higher education. Given its strong cultural scene, natural beauty and low living expenses, it is not surprising that Austria attracts international students seeking to do their PhDs.

PhD in Austria for international students: Overview

Requirements for applying as a phd student in austria, phd programmes in austria, austria phd scholarships, phd salary in austria.

If you are an international student interested in doing your PhD in Austria, you might be wondering how PhD programmes in Austria are structured, and which institutions offer them?

Austria has 60 higher educational institutions granting PhDs . They are divided into the following three sectors :

  • 22 public universities ( öffentliche Universitäten )
  • 21 Universities of Applied Sciences ( Fachhochschulen )
  • 17 accredited private universities ( Privatuniversitäten )

Instead of advertising specific doctoral research projects, Austrian universities generally offer PhD programmes focusing on specific areas . As a PhD student in Austria, you can expect to take courses regarding your topic and methodology in addition to performing original research, typically under the supervision of a faculty member. While Universities of Applied Sciences do not award PhDs, some may offer professional doctorate programmes in partnership with universities.

Most institutions will want you to submit a completed application form along with official transcripts of past qualifications, degree certificates, reference letters and an accompanying personal statement. You can apply to most universities simply by submitting an application form online along with all necessary application documents . It is a good idea to check with your university, however, since you may need to submit some documents by post. You should also inquire after specifications regarding translations of application documents. Bear in mind that most Austrian PhD programmes will have set application deadlines owing to their curricula.

A PhD programme in Austria will normally require you to have a master’s degree in an appropriate subject that is worth 180 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) or equivalent. In certain cases, it might be possible to study a PhD with just a bachelor’s degree, however this is likely to make your PhD longer and will require more coursework. Some PhD programmes may also set entrance examinations to ensure applicants have the right skills and experience to tackle more specific research.

Most students attend public university programmes offered in German or English. You may need to prove your competency in German at the B2 or C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. You can do this by taking the Österreichisches Sprachdiplom Deutsch , Austria’s officially-recognised examination for German as a foreign language.

Once you have been accepted, you may need to organise a visa to begin your studies. If you are from an EU/EEA country, you will not need a visa but must register with the local authorities within three months of arrival. If you are from a non-EU/EEA country, you will need to apply for a Residence Visa D ( Aufenthaltsvisum D ), which allows you to enter Austria for up to six months and apply for a Residence Permit – Student ( Aufenthaltsbewilligung – Studierender ) during that time.

Austrian universities differentiate between doctorates ( Doktorate) and PhDs. PhD programmes are often targeted at a university’s own research associates while doctorate programmes are also open to students who are not employed at the university. These are the most common PhD qualifications in Austria:

  • Doctor of Arts
  • Doctor of Economic Sciences
  • Doctor of Medical Science
  • Doctor of Natural Sciences
  • Doctor of Psychotherapy Science
  • Doctor of Technical Sciences

Students have at least one academic advisor who guides and mentors them during their PhDs and typically complete research towards their thesis over the course of three years. The Austrian academic year runs from October to September and is made up of a winter semester (1 October to 30 January) and a summer semester (1 March to 30 September). 

Austrian PhD programmes typically follow a set curriculum involving organised study and training as well as independent research. For the first part, you will complete courses designed to advance your subject knowledge and develop practical research skills. These will be assigned a credit value and organised in a similar way to the classes and seminars that make up bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

Towards the end of your first year, you will decide upon an original research topic suited to your programme . This will need to be formally proposed to your supervisor and/or other senior researchers. This process may also involve an examination to confirm you are ready to make the step up to the independent research stage of your PhD.

Austrian PhDs use the ECTS credit system in accordance with the Bologna Process. A doctorate is worth 180 credits , all of which must be earned in order to gain the PhD qualification. Once your thesis is finished, you must present it to an examination committee before defending it in a process known as the Rigorosum .

International students enjoy low tuition fees at many institutions in Austria compared to other European countries ; some pay no tuition fees at all, provided they complete their degrees on time (within six to eight semesters). Be that as it may, you will still need funding to cover your costs of living . It can take the form of a scholarship, an employment contract, or a fellowship.

Scholarships are available for international students who want to earn their PhDs in Austria. However, there are almost no scholarships for complete degree programmes in Austria, which of course includes PhDs. The Austrian Exchange Service ( Österreichischer Austauschdienst, OeAD ) runs a database , which contains an overview of funding opportunities for PhDs in Austria for international students and provides all relevant information concerning the application process.

If you are awarded a position at a university, you will be expected to assist with teaching, lab demonstrations and some administrative responsibilities according to the terms of contract. These tasks will increase your PhD workload, but they also provide excellent experience and additional material for your CV.

With our Job-Mail, you will receive suitable job ads as well as interesting content matching your search profile  on a weekly basis.

Your salary as a PhD student depends on how many hours you work, the type of work you perform, and your university . The best source of precise and current information is your prospective university. You can contact your prospective department and inquire after employment and salaries, and human resources websites may provide general information for your specific institution.

As a PhD student working at a university or research institution in Austria, your salary will fall within the B1 bracket, according to the Collective Bargaining Agreement of sections 98 and 99 of the 2002 Universities Act.

The gross monthly salary of the B1 salary bracket amounts to €3,277.30. The figure offered will vary from institution to institution, but this is a typical salary offer for people with qualifications that PhD students also possess. Permanent staff members of institutions in this band can expect that figure to increase over time.

Preparatory Funding

This instrument aims at enabling new academic partnerships between Austrian higher education institutions and higher education and research institutions in the partner countries. The aim of these small-scale projects is to elaborate a joint project proposal for an APPEAR Academic Partnership.

Academic Partnership

This instrument finances deepened and sustainable academic cooperation in higher education, research and management.

Advanced Academic Partnership

This instrument is available to consortia which have successfully completed an APPEAR Academic Partnership project. It finances continued academic cooperation that builds on the results of the completed project and develops new innovative designs for cooperation in higher education and research for development.

Extended Impact Partnership

This instrument finances continued cooperation that builds on the results of a completed APPEAR project and develops new innovative designs for cooperation in the use of research results, that have already been generated. The aim of the Extended Impact Partnership is to extend the impact by focusing on the application and uptake of the achieved results. Consortia of academic institutions are encouraged to invite non-academic institutions to join and to enhance the impact. The long-term goal is to improve the living conditions of defined target groups.

All instruments contribute to the overall objective of APPEAR by strengthening the scientific foundation and institutional capacities in higher education, research and management in the partner countries and by increasing the commitment to international cooperation and development at Austrian higher education institutions. The projects financed within these instruments focus on one or more of the APPEAR thematic areas and contribute to achieving the SDGs.

Financial support for PhD students and interns is a key priority for ISTA.

Status of our students.

PhD students are employed by ISTA . Prior to the Qualifying Exam , their activities consist of coursework, rotation projects within research groups, and preparation for the Qualifying Exam. Once the students have successfully passed the Qualifying Exam, they perform research on their PhD thesis project within one or more research groups, and they may assist in teaching activities.

All our PhD students receive internationally competitive salaries and full social security coverage. Students also receive  financial support  to attend scientific conferences and workshops during their studies.

Scientific interns are employed by ISTA. They are enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree program in good standing at a degree granting institution (other than ISTA) while performing a research project within a research group of ISTA for a period of up to 1 year.

ISTerns receive a monthly compensation. The ISTernship program is developed in cooperation with the OeAD, the Austrian Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research. The OeAD handles the scholarship payments for a period of up to 3 months between May 15 and September 15.

PhD student salaries depend on whether the student is holding a bachelor’s or a master’s degree at the time of admission. When students pass their Qualifying Exam (about 1.5 years into their degree), they receive a salary raise. Gross salaries in the year 2023 for PhD students range – dependent on the criteria above – from 2471 EUR/month to 3003 EUR/month (paid 14 times a year: once per month plus double payments in June and November).

ISTA offers scientific interns a minimum salary of EUR 1,184 gross per month.

Admission Costs and Tuition Fees

ISTA does not charge any tuition fees . No application fee is required to apply to our PhD and internship programs.

Funding hub assists Hoosier communities applying for federal climate and resilience grants

In an article in the September 11, 2023 issue of the IU Today online newsletter, we learn how Homa Taheri , a Ph.D. candidate in economics and McKinney Climate Fellow, helped connect rural Indiana communities to federal sustainability grants through the Indiana Resilience Funding Hub this summer. The McKinney Climate Fellows program connects undergraduate and graduate students interested in climate, sustainability, and community resilience with career experiences. As part of her fellowship, she created an introduction to the Biden administration’s Justice40 initiative to help hub partners better understand how equity and environmental justice can enhance their grant competitiveness.”
