Is Your Technical Equipment Ready for Written Online Exams?

[Translate to English:] Studium

Join Our Test Runs to Find Out (Start: June 14, 2021)

Are you planning to take a written online exam with online supervision at the end of June? Take part in our test runs starting on June 14, 2021. 

The next exam week will be held online from June 21 – 25, 2021. If you plan to take a written online exam with online supervision, do a test run in mid-June.

Joining one of our test runs will allow you to check if your technical equipment and setup are (still) okay. We also recommend participating if you are using a new device or have made changes to the system. Click through the pre-check and be sure to try the different question types in MyLEARN (multiple choice, cloze, downloading and uploading documents, etc.). Once you have taken a test run, you will be much more relaxed during your real exams.

Re-Registration Deadlines for the 2021/22 Winter Semester

[Translate to English:] Studium

To continue your studies and remain enrolled at WU, you have to re-register every semester. To do so, please pay the applicable tuition fees/ÖH dues during the admission and re-registration period 2021/22 Winter Semester (July 12, 2021 - September 5, 2021).

If you only pay your fees during the subsequent extended admission period ending on November 30, 2021, your tuition fees will go up by 10 %. 

If you do not re-register by the relevant deadline, you will be un-enrolled and you will no longer be able to take any exams.

Payment options: We recommend that you use online banking for paying your fees – this way, any limitations on campus, if there are any, will not be a problem. 

  • By online bank transfer – here you can find the banking details

  • By debit card at a self-service terminal in Building LC

Reference management – EndNote

[Translate to English:] Diverses

Even more reference management: In addition to the programs Citavi, Zotero and Juris-M, you can now also use the desktop application EndNote 20 starting with June 1, 2021.

In the Controlpanel under the menu item "Software", you can install EndNote 20 on your private computer. EndNote 20 offers more extensive options than the previously offered EndNote Web. EndNote Web can still be used freely, but the citation styles programmed for WU will only be available via the desktop version starting this fall.
