Semester re-re­gis­tra­tion

To con­tinue your stud­ies and re­main en­rolled at WU, you have to re-re­gister every semester. To do so, you need to pay any ap­plic­able tu­ition fees/ÖH dues by the dead­line of the rel­ev­ant en­rol­ment period.

  • Dead­lines: Septem­ber 5 (win­ter semester) / Feb­ru­ary 5 (sum­mer semester)

  • Ex­ten­ded dead­lines: Novem­ber 30 (win­ter semester) / April 30 (sum­mer semester)

Pay­ment op­tions:

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.

WU Change­maker Pro­gram – Ex­tra-­cur­ricular edu­ca­tion pro­gram for aspir­ing Change­makers

The „Change­maker Pro­gram“ is a new pro­gram for WU stu­dents who would like to make a dif­fer­ence and at the same time hone use­ful skills for their per­sonal lives and fu­ture ca­reers.

This ex­tra-­cur­ricular pro­gram was cre­ated by the WU En­tre­pren­eur­ship center this year. The goal is to im­part en­tre­pren­eur­ship com­pet­en­cies and 21st cen­tury skills to in­ter­ested stu­dents.“Change­maker” is pro­ject-­based and aims at im­ple­ment­ing a real-­world im­pact pro­ject to make a con­tri­bu­tion in our so­ci­ety. After com­plet­ing the pro­gram, stu­dents will earn 4 ECTS cred­its count­ing to­wards their free elect­ives (Freie Wahlfächer).

First, stu­dents learn en­tre­pren­eur­ship know­ledge and skills in on­line mod­ules and in-­class work­shops. After that, they ap­ply their new know­ledge and skills in a pro­ject. This year, stu­dents help ele­ment­ary school chil­dren or­gan­ize a mar­ket day. Com­mit­ted stu­dents help school chil­dren gain en­tre­pren­eur­ial skills and thus show them new per­spect­ives.

Be a Change­maker!

More in­form­a­tion on Change­maker can be found on our web­site.

The next Change­maker info ses­sion will be on Novem­ber 14, 2017 at 8:30 am at WU Gründung­szen­trum. Please re­gister via email.

You will find in­form­a­tion and up­dates on Face­book and Me­dium.
