Concurrent Enrollment (Mitbelegen)
Concurrent enrollment makes it possible for students who are currently admitted to and registered for a regular degree program at another Austrian university (not at a private university) to attend individual courses at WU. Concurrent enrollment does not apply for Bridging Courses (= preparatory courses in mathematics and some foreign languages), which are reserved exclusively for WU students. Students with concurrent enrollment do not need to pay additional tuition fees.
About concurrent enrollment at WU
The following regulation applies to students seeking admission to WU for concurrent enrollment (in addition to another academic program at another university) for the first time in the winter semester of 2011/12, as well as to students who plan to resume their concurrent enrollment status in the winter semester of 2011/12 after an interruption.
These regulations do not apply to students who currently have concurrent enrollment status. As long as the concurrent enrollment period is not interrupted, it can be continued as before after presenting the student enrollment sheet (Studienblatt).
For new or resumed concurrent enrollment:
For programs started in the winter semester 2011/12 at another Austrian university, students must present a transcript marked "STEOP absolviert" (STEOP completed) or a confirmation that the STEOP has been completed, issued by the study regulations office of the issuing university, before they can concurrently enroll at WU.
For programs started before the winter semester 2011/12 at another Austrian university, students must present a transcript documenting completed examinations worth a total of at least 30 ECTS credits (not including recognized exams).
For Master's programs, students must present a transcript documenting completed examinations worth a total of at least 30 ECTS credits (not including recognized exams), regardless of the initial enrollment to the Master's program. Please note that you will only be allowed to take part in course from the Bachelor's programs.
Submitting an application for concurrent enrollment
The enrollment as a Mitbeleger can be carried out during the enrollment period (general and extended period). If you have never been registered at WU before, you will need to provide all the relevant data for concurrent enrollment using the online pre-registration system. For completing pre-registration, you will be asked to make an appointment for enrollment with Admissions at the Study Service Center, building LC, level 2.
Please bring the following documents with you to your appointment in the Admissions Office:
confirmation that the STEOP has been completed or transcript documenting completed examinations worth a total of at least 30 ECTS credits and
the current enrollment sheet (Studienblatt) of the degree program you are attending at the other university, and
a valid travel document (passport) or, for Austrian students, proof of citizenship (Staatsbürgerschaftsnachweis) and a valid, official photo ID or student ID card.
The Admissions Office staff will inspect the original documents to confirm the information you provided during pre-enrollment, make sure you fulfill the necessary requirements and confirm your identity.
