(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 subject(s).

(2) Due to the special admission requirements (“examination of suitable physical fitness” prior to admission to the study programme), the teaching subject Movement and Sports has no course during the Studies Induction and Orientation Phase. See also: http://www.uibk.ac.at/isw/studium/ergaenzungspruefung/

One course examination in the second chosen teaching subject and one course examination on the orientation unit, SL 2, 2 ECTS-Credits, of the educational training.

1. Course from the Studies Induction and Orientation Phase of the second chosen teaching subject
2. Orientation unit (SL 2, 2 ECTS-Credits)

(4) A positive result (passing grade) on the examinations specified in Paragraph 3 permits students to attend all courses and take all examinations following the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage (STEOP) and to write a diploma thesis as described in the curriculum.
