Yes, we still have more than a month to go until the semester starts (sing Glory, Hallelujah or an equivalent thereof), but there are some more or less rapidly approaching deadlines/dates you might want to know about:
Deadlines winter term 2015/16
August 28 – Written entrance exam for beginning Lehramt (teaching) students! Find more information about the exam and registration for it at the Student Point.
September 5 – End of general admission. If you are a first time student of a BA, BEd, MA or diploma program, or a student from outside of Austria, you need to be registered by this point! Please note that the 5th of September is a Saturday, so the deadline is actually September 4! Register in time if you haven’t already, processing might take a while! However, there is a list of exceptions to this deadline, please read it carefully.
September 6 – November 30 – End of admission for absolutely everyone! If you are not registered (i.e. paid your students’ union fee and/or your tuition fee) by then you can’t take any classes in the winter semester.
September 28 – VELT – The next sitting of the VELT test taking place at the Audi Max at the university main building. Registration for VELT is possible via UNIVIS from 7.9.2015 to 21.9.2015!
October 31 – This is the last day to apply for remission of the tuition fee!
