  • You have a long-lasting physical or mental impairment that makes it difficult or impossible for you to take the written exam? Please contact the WU BeAble team during the online registration period, March 3 – May 19, 2020. The WU BeAble team (beable@wu.ac.at) will work with you to find out if and how you can participate in the entrance exam.
