Re-Registration Deadlines for the 2020 Summer Semester

Students must re-register for the 2020 summer semester during the admission and re-registration period (January 7, 2020 - February 5, 2020). If you only pay your fees during the subsequent extended admission period ending on April 30, 2020, your tuition fees will go up by 10 %.

Students must re-register every semester in order to continue their studies and remain enrolled at WU. If you pay your fees (ÖH dues and, if applicable, tuition fees) at one of our self-service terminals located on the second floor of the LC building, your re-registration will be in effect immediately; you will then be able to print the new date on your student ID as well as your new enrollment information sheet and enrollment confirmation. You can also pay your fees via online bank transfer (Online Services for Students); in this case, however, it will take a few days for your re-registration to take effect and for you to be able to print the new date on your student ID and your student documents.

Improving Important Soft Skills as a Mentor: Mentoring@WU Info Session on December 11, 2019

As a mentor in our Mentoring@WU program you will be responsible for a group of bachelor's students in the first year of their studies. You will help others and benefit from the program yourself, all at the same time.

As a mentor, you will meet up with your mentees regularly and help them plan and organize their studies.

In return, you will improve important soft skills: You will gain hands-on leadership experience and hone your counselling and presentation skills. At the end, you will get a confirmation that you volunteered as a mentor.

Are you currently a student of “Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften” or “Wirtschaftsrecht” (with 50 ECTS credits minimum) and interested in becoming a mentor in the 2020 summer semester? If so, do not miss our Mentoring@WU info session! You will learn all about the program, and current mentors will share their experiences. This event will be in German. We look forward to seeing you there!
