IMPORTANT INFO FOR THE COMING SEMESTER

Dear Students,

We hope you are all well and healthy! As you know, we are not back to pre-CoVid conditions and since the new semester is starting soon, here is some important information on how things will be handled and how to deal with planning for your winter semester:



1. Registration

2. CoVid regulations

3. SSS opening hours

4. Schulpraxis

1. Registration
Registration for courses for the WS20/21 will take place from 8.9. (12:00) until 15.9. (23:59) through u:space.

Course Swapping is possible from 28.9. until 9.10. You can swap course places with a fellow student if both of you have a fixed spot in a group/course and both of you agree to the swap.
To do so, write an email to the sss.anglistik@univie.ac.at with the subject line “Kurstausch” from your u:net account – all other emails will not be answered. Please put your colleague’s email address in CC. Both of you need to send an e-mail for the swap to be taken into consideration. The swap will come into effect only after the two parties have sent a confirmation email from their university e-mail account. 
IMPORTANT: After the swap has been processed, please inform your lecturers so that they can add you to the corresponding Moodle course.

Late Registration Period / Free course spots allocation will take place online at these times: 

Mon, 12.10. from 1 pm to 2 pm 

Wed, 15.10. from 1 pm to 2 pm 

Mon, 19.10. from 1 pm to 2 pm 


Write an email to sss.anglistik@univie.ac.at from your university u:net account with the subject line “Restplatz” during and only during these times. E-mails arriving before 13:00 or after 14:00 will not be processed. 
The list with all free course spots will be made available on our homepage in the morning on the first date of the late registration period. 
IMPORTANT: Please write ONLY one email per course (do not write all of your requests in one email or several emails regarding just one course) 
Only emails sent during those time slots will be considered – otherwise, your email will not be regarded.Due to time constraints, not all emails can be processed during the time slot. However, all possible course swaps will have been processed before the next late registration slot. During the processing of the emails, the spots will be given away on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, based on how early the email was sent. After processing all of the requests, the list with free spots will be updated and uploaded again well ahead of the next Restplatz slot. 
Disclaimer! Registrations for courses are only valid if they appear in your u:space account. Students inscribed in Moodle courses without registration in u:space cannot receive a grade for the course.
