Study faster thanks to Winteruni


This is the Winter University powered by EY

WU Vienna, as Austria's leading university for economics and social sciences, meets the increasing demands with its versatility and high quality. In order to reduce the gap between the duration of studies specified in the curriculum and the actual duration of studies, WU implemented a widely respected "pioneer model" in the study program in September 2001: additional courses were offered in blocks during the vacations, followed by an examination, for which there was a particular backlog demand based on a needs analysis conducted in the previous semester. The response was enormous: the courses were fully booked within a short time. In retrospect, the students referred to this study acceleration program as the "Winter University".

Studying faster

Among the most important goals of the study acceleration program:

  • Allowing students to take advantage of lecture-free time, thereby avoiding study delays and shortening the length of study.

  • Offering block courses for working students.

The Winter University 2022 will take place from 31.01.-26.02.2022, in about 54 courses will cover more than 62,00 study places.
