Planning your semester

At the University of Vienna, you do not get a ready-made schedule, telling you what courses to complete each semester. Rather, you have to plan your semester yourself.
The most important tools for doing so are the student platform u:space and the course directory u:find.

Information about u:space and u:find

This is how it works:


Step 1: Pay your tuition fee/Students’ Union fee
Step 2: Validate your u:card
Step 3: Plan your schedule
Step 4: Register for courses and examinations
Step 5: Complete courses

Further information on ...

  • the STEOP and planning your studies is provided by the directorate of studies during the orientation course at the beginning of your studies.
  • the procedure and modes of assessment of specific courses is provided by the relevant lecturers at the beginning of each semester.
