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.
