Studies Induction and Orientation Stage (STEOP)
(1) Within the scope of the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage, which takes place in the first semester, the following course examinations must be passed:
1. VO Linear Algebra and Analytic Geometry 1 (CM 1 lit. a/3 hrs. /4.5 ECTS-Credits),
2. VO Analysis 1 (CM 2 lit. a/3 hrs. /4.5 ECTS-Credits).
(2) Successful passing of all exams of the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage entitles to passing all further courses and examinations as well as to writing the Bachelor's Thesis.
(3) Before successful completion of the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage courses amounting to 21 ECTS-Credits may be passed. The requirements specified in the curriculum must be met.
(1) The Studies Induction and Orientation Stage (STEOP), with a duration of one semester (30 ECTS-Credits), provides an overview of the study programme and its structure in order to give students an objective basis to assess their decision to pursue their chosen subjects.
(2) During the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage, the following course examinations, which may be repeated twice, must be completed satisfactorily:
- Linear Algebra and Analytic Geometry, SL1, 2.5 ECTS-Credits, from Module 1
- Analysis 1, SL1, 2.5 ECTS-Credits, from Module 2
- Mathematics - Studies and Profession, VO1, 0.5 ECTS-Credits, from Module 4
(3) A positive result (passing grade) on the examinations specified in Paragraph 2 permits students to attend all courses and take all examinations following the Introduction and Orientation Phase for Students (STEOP) and to write a bachelor's thesis as described in the curriculum. The registration requirements specified by the curriculum must be met.
Recommended Course Sequence
The exemplary course sequence given below is recommended for full-time students beginning their study programme in the winter semester. The table shows one possible course sequence for the bachelor's programme and is not compulsory. Delays resulting from repeated examinations are not taken into account.
The standard duration of the study programme is 6 semesters or 180 ECTS-Credits, whereby according to the Universities Act of 2002, a workload of 1,500 (real) hours per academic year must be fulfilled, corresponding to 60 ECTS-Credits (one ECTS-Credit is equivalent to a workload of 25 hours).
The bridge course mathematics is recommended to first year students in the Bachelor's programmes Technical Mathematics and School Teacher Training Mathematics. The bridge course offers support for first year students to ease the transition from school to university.

Information about examination regulations, assessment and grading
The examination regulation is an integral part of the curriculum, detailed information can be found under the paragraph examination regulations.
The grade distribution table is a statistical representation of the distribution of all successfully completed examinations in a given programme of study or subject (based on all registered students for the programme or subject). The grade distribution table is updated in regular intervals.
|Austrian grading scheme||Definition||%-age|
|1||EXCELLENT: Outstanding performance||34.4||= 100%|
|2||GOOD: Generally good, but with some errors||25.7|
|3||SATISFACTORY: Generally sound work with a number of substantial errors||23.2|
|4||SUFFICIENT: Performance meets the minimum criteria||16.7|
|5||INSUFFICIENT: Substantial improvement necessary; requirement of further work|
Overall classification of the qualification
Explanation: An overall classification (mit Auszeichnung bestanden/pass with distinction, bestanden/pass, nicht bestanden/fail) – is awarded only for examinations that conclude a programme of study and consist of more than one subject (an examination of this type is not specified in the curriculum of this programme of study).
