  • you can re-register for the 2020 summer semester until June 30, 2020.

  • you can complete your studies until June 30 without having to re-register for the 2020 summer semester (or you can reclaim your tuition fees if you have already paid them and complete your studies by June 30).

  • If you have been granted an academic leave of absence for the 2020 summer semester, you can cancel your leave of absence until the end of June by sending an email to

  • You can switch to a new curriculum version (e.g. from the 2012 to the 2019 version of the Bachelor’s Program in Business, Economics and Social Sciences).

Survey for Students During COVID-19

[Translate to English:] Logo Diverses

Due to the coronavirus crisis, universities in Austria have been closed since mid-March and classes have been held online via distance learning. Student life has changed considerably.

Researchers of the Faculty of Psychology at the University of Vienna want to learn more about how students are coping with the current situation, how studying at home works for them, what challenges they face, but also if this situation opens up new paths to learning. The study aims at providing new insights for students, universities, and education policies.

We would be grateful if you participated in this study, too (survey language: German). Deadline: May 11, 2020.

Thank you.
