In the classroom

You can expect WU to

  • provide a sufficient number of courses for you to be able to pursue your studies efficiently. This does not mean, however, that you are always entitled to a place in the course of your choice. Sometimes it will be necessary to take a class held at a different time or by a different instructor than would have been your first choice.

  • do our best to increase the number of existing places in classes that are in particularly high demand, or organize additional classes in these subjects (e.g. as part of WU’s study acceleration programs).

  • provide you with important information on your courses early (via various channels, for example the course catalog, LEARN, etc.), so that you can plan ahead.

  • notify you as soon as possible if classes are cancelled or re-scheduled. You will usually be notified by your course instructor, through WU’s text messaging service, or by email.


WU expects you to

  • regularly attend the classes you have signed up for. Many classes, especially the ones held in small groups, need an active exchange of thoughts and knowledge to “work.” That means that you as a participant contribute to the quality of your classes.

  • sign up only for classes you will actually be attending. If you sign up for a class and then change your mind about attending for whatever reason, please drop the course as promptly as possible, so that one of your fellow students can have your place.

  • follow the rules that apply to your individual courses. During or before the first class of any course, the instructor will inform you of attendance requirements, required performance, possible consequences of being absent without an excuse, etc. To pass the course, you will need to fulfill these requirements.

  • prepare individually for classes in order to acquire the knowledge necessary for the respective teaching units. After classes, you should revise the learning matter.
