Legal situation: There are free and closed trades in Austria. In order to work in a closed trade, the studies which are obligatory for the execution of this trade (e. g.: medicine, law, teaching qualification) must be recognized in Austria. This is a process that is not accompanied by MTOP, as universities, along with other ministries, are engaged in this activity.
In the fields of economics, IT and technology, no recognition of studies is necessary. Nevertheless, many of our participants have a recognised degree in Austria. However, this is not a prerequisite for the MTOP Associate Program.
