New stu­dent ID num­bers

As of the 2017/18 win­ter semester stu­dent ID num­bers will con­sist of 8 rather than 7 di­gits.

Stu­dents who first en­rolled in the 2017/18 win­ter semester auto­mat­ic­ally re­ceived an 8-di­git stu­dent ID num­ber. This num­ber starts with “1”, “2”, or “3” (rather than with the year of en­rol­ment as was the case with the 7-di­git num­bers).

Stu­dents who en­rolled be­fore the 2017/18 win­ter semester will keep their stu­dent ID num­ber. However, the num­ber will be turned into an 8-di­git num­ber by pla­cing a "0" (zero) at the be­gin­ning of the num­ber.


  • Former stu­dent ID num­ber: 1212345 > new stu­dent ID num­ber: 01212345

  • Former stu­dent ID num­ber: 0712345 > new stu­dent ID num­ber: 00712345

In WU’s cent­ral on­line ser­vices, you will already see your new 8-di­git stu­dent ID num­ber.

When filling in an exam answer sheet, please make sure you use your new 8-di­git stu­dent ID num­ber! Example of a new mul­tiple-choice answer sheet:

Ment­or­ing Pro­gram for Aca­demic Writ­ing – for big and small writ­ing pro­jects dur­ing your stud­ies

Are you plan­ning to write a pa­per and do not know where to start? Are you strug­gling with pro­cras­tin­a­tion or suf­fer­ing from writer’s block?

WU’s Ment­or­ing Pro­gram for Aca­demic Writ­ing helps bach­elor’s stu­dents im­prove their writ­ing skills by fo­cus­sing on the writ­ing pro­cess rather the fin­ished pro­duct.

You will learn strategies to guide you through vari­ous writ­ing phases, and try out a num­ber of cre­at­ive writ­ing meth­ods. In ad­di­tion, hand­s-on ex­er­cises and (peer) feed­back will also con­trib­ute to im­prov­ing your writ­ing skills.

Par­ti­cipants in the pro­gram will be part of a small group of bach­elor’s stu­dents led by two writ­ing ment­ors. With the help of your ment­ors, you will be work­ing on a writ­ing pro­ject and ex­pand your writ­ing skills. These skills will not only prove use­ful for your stud­ies but also for your fu­ture ca­reer.

Ap­plic­a­tion dead­line: Oc­to­ber 10, 2017

GO GLOBAL 2017 – WU’s study abroad fair

GO GLOBAL 2017 will take place in WU’s Lib­rary & Learn­ing Center on Oc­to­ber 11, 2017 from 11 am to 3 pm.

Seize this op­por­tun­ity and learn all about WU’s ex­change pro­grams. Get ad­vice on how to suc­cess­fully ap­ply for and or­gan­ize your ex­change period and talk to former and cur­rent ex­change stu­dents.

Ap­plic­a­tion dead­lines for WU’s Eng­lish-taught mas­ter’s pro­grams

We are now ac­cept­ing ap­plic­a­tions for our Eng­lish-taught mas­ter’s pro­grams start­ing in the 2018/19 win­ter semester.

At the time of ap­plic­a­tion, stu­dents do not need a com­pleted bach­elor’s pro­gram. To ap­ply, please use our on­line ap­plic­a­tion tool.

WU uses a rolling ad­mis­sion sys­tem, which means that there are three so-c­alled “pri­or­ity dead­lines”:

  • Pri­or­ity dead­line I: Oc­to­ber 8, 2017

  • Pri­or­ity dead­line II: Janu­ary 8, 2018

  • Pri­or­ity dead­line III: March 8, 2018

If you ap­ply by Oc­to­ber 8, 2017, we will let you know by Christ­mas whether you have been ac­cep­ted by the pro­gram of your choice. The earlier you ap­ply, the earlier you will be no­ti­fied of the status of your ap­plic­a­tion.

Please note that for the In­ter­na­tional Man­age­ment/CEMS pro­gram, only the first two pri­or­ity dead­lines ap­ply. Last chance to ap­ply: Janu­ary 8, 2018.

Please check the pro­gram-spe­cific ad­mis­sion re­quire­ments and pro­ced­ures on­line.
