Dear colleagues and those who will be,
welcome to a new semester at the English department! Because the start of a semester is always stressful (deadlines, fees, buying books, why in the world is the registration not working, did I really forget everything I learned last semester?!), especially for new students, we have compiled some useful information for you.

for first semester Students
Freshers, please see our guide here: The First Semester Survival Guide. This contains essential information about the Wheres and Hows of the English department. You may also be interested in our FAQs section concerning studying at our department as well as the department itself. Additionally, there is a handy guide to be found here (PDF; German only). We’d also like to remind you that the student event UniLeben is still in full swing and that the English department itself is hosting an info session targeted at first semester students on October 2nd at C1 lecture hall. If you want to know all there is to know about your university and your department, now’s the time!
For Exchange Students
You might be interested in our Survival Guide and our FAQ section as well (see above)! Additionally, please note the holidays and semester breaks (English, German) as well as public holidays in Austria (English).
Goodbye UNIVIS, hello U:SPACE
The university is in the process of establishing the new U:SPACE system, the successor of the UNIVIS system. Until the new one is fully established students will be able to access both platforms. Both systems allow you to register for courses, lectures and exams, check on your grades, check the status of your tuition fee/students’ union fee payment, manage your personal data (e.g. your address) and so on. Both require you to log in with your assigned student ID number and your password. You do not need to register anew or change your password! If you experience any troubles registering for courses or exams, even though you fulfil all prerequisites, please contact the Studien-Service-Stelle Anglistik.
This semester’s tutorials
A range of tutorials will be offered again this semester (esp. STEOP classes, as well as PPOCS and ILS), the starting times can be found in the course directory.
Our office hours: TBA
Unfortunately, we don’t have our regular office hours settled yet, seeing as we are all waiting to be sorted into this semester’s courses. We’ll let you know as soon as we can! Meanwhile, please contact us via e-mail (email@example.com) and join our Facebook groups for the latest updates:
We’d also like to introduce you to our shiny new FB page STV Anglistik & Amerikanistik Univie!
Student events for this semester
Every now and then you maybe want to take a break from studying and paper writing and socialise with your fellow students. You can do that outside the university, of course, but what if we told you you could have a side of free food and coffee, or sing at the top of your lungs? Check out our events page, we regularly organise get-togethers, and the department also has its own choir!
We wish you a great start of your semester!
Your ‘umble servants,
