While there are some studies with limited access in Austria this does not apply to the PELP programme. No application, no limitation on access, no prior exams! However, there are certain requirements (see question 2) and international students may need to apply for admission at the University Graz and provide proof of sufficient German skills (see question 9 to 11).
According to the Curriculum the following requirements apply:
- Students need a bachelor degree (or a higher degree) in humanities, or social, cultural, economic, legal, and applied sciences, or any other equivalent national or international study program. The equivalence and entry qualifications will need to be recognised by the Rectorate.
- As PELP is a philosophical master degree the bachelor degree (or higher degree) must have subject-specific (philosophical) courses that sum up to at least 30 ECTS credits, or their equivalent.
- The subject-specific courses must include at least 6 ECTS credits from courses in introduction to logic, 5 ECTS credits in theoretical philosophy, 13 ECTS credits in practical philosophy, and 6 ECTS credits in history of philosophy.
- If the study completed does not meet these conditions (2 and 3), students can still enroll in the MA PELP. However, they will have to successfully complete additional courses in philosophy at the BA level (including logic, theoretical and practical philosophy and history of philosophy) to the extent of 30 ECTS before the end of their MA PELP studies. On the page "admission", you can find a step-by-step guide for the enrollement process in case you do not meet the requirements.
Students from EU-member states and students with equal status do not have to pay any tuition fees for the first three years studying the PELP programme. Only the student union fee (ÖH Beitrag) of € 20,20 must be paid every semester. After this period the tuition fee is € 363.36 (+ € 20,20) per semester. Students from other countries have to pay € 726,72 (+ € 20,20). For further information and possible refunds please contact the Admissions Office.
The language of instruction in the PELP Master's programme is either German or English, depending on the lecturers. The courses are offered in such a way that the Master's programme can be completed entirely in German and in English. In case you want to study the PELP programme in english, you will have to prove sufficient skills in English language.
The Double Degree Program is conducted entirely in English (with the exception of the free electives). This includes both the courses as well as the Master's thesis and Master's examination.
