:: University and college admissions in Austria, Switzerland, Belgium

These countries probably have the most liberal system of university admission anywhere in the world, since anyone who has passed the Matura may enroll in any subject field (or even several at no additional cost) at a public university. In Belgium as well, the only prerequisite for enrolling in university studies is to have obtained a high-school diploma. In both Switzerland and Belgium, medical studies are an exception, which have a numerus clausus system due to overcrowding. This liberal admission practice led to overcrowding and high dropout rates in the more popular fields of study like psychology and journalism, as well as high failure rates on exams which are unofficially used to filter out the less-capable students. Following a ruling by the European Court of Justice issued on July 7, 2005, which forces Austria to accept nationals of other EU Member States under the same conditions as students who took their Matura in Austria, a law was passed on June 8 allowing universities to impose measures to select students in those fields which are subject to numerus clausus in Germany. Starting in 2006, the three medical universities (in Vienna, Innsbruck and Graz) did introduce entrance exams. There are no intentions to introduce a numerus clausus in any subject field.

StudentAustralia's academic year runs from February to December and many applications for courses close in October. However, in recent years a number of institutions, especially Universities and foundation studies programs, have offered a mid-year
intake. The institutions shown on this site have details for the specific program of interest to you.

English language courses are flexible and starting dates are frequent, often monthly. The Australian academic year commences in February and varies from that of the Northern Hemisphere. The six to seven months in between can give students time to 'top-up' their English after completing the Pakistan academic year in June.
