Registration Deadlines

  • Course registration at our department usually starts at the beginning of September for the winter semester and at the beginning of February for the summer semester. During these registration periods the "first come, first served" principle does not apply.
  • Please note that it is mandatory to register for a course, even if you are just interested in taking it. It is not possible to attend any course without prior registration.
  • Course registration is done via u:space. You do not have to be in Vienna in order to register for courses. The International Office will send you an email with your student ID number and the instructions on how to activate your u:account well before the start of the registration period. Registration periods for specific courses are indicated in u:space.

Registration process

  • In order to register for a course, please follow the registration link in the course catalogue u:space. It is provided in each course's detailed course description in the section "An/Abmeldung" (please note that this link is only active during the registration period!). Please choose [“Erasmus-Modul”] when asked for the module during registration. Further information can be found here.
  • The registration is completed once your status in u:space has changed to “angemeldet” (registered) after the end of the registration period. The registration via u:space is sufficient as you are allowed to attend all our courses, if you have been nominated for our field of study.
  • If your status is listed as “vorgemerkt” (pre-registered) during the registration period, you can ignore this; your status will automatically be changed to “angemeldet” (registered) after the registration has been closed.
  • If this is not the case within three days after the end of the registration period, please contact your departmental coordinator.
  • Please note that attendance during the first course session is obligatory. If you do not show up in the first session without an excuse, you might lose your place in the course.
  • If your status is listed as “Warteliste” (waiting list), you were put on the course's waiting list. In this case please go to the first course session in order to see whether you can obtain a place.
  • General information on course registration at the University of Vienna can be found here.


  • Should you decide to not to take part in a course after all, please de-register from the course via u:space as soon as possible so that we can offer the place to another student. De-registration is possible until October 31st (winter semester) or April 30th (summer semester). Please also inform your course instructor about your deregistration.
  • If you have not de-registered by October 31st (winter semester) or April 30th (summer semester), you might get a negative grade for the course in your transcript of records.
