First-time admission to the University of Innsbruck to 30 April 2020
(2020 SS)

Compulsory online application

Select your study programme from the study programmes and start your online application.

 

Registration for your study programme

We continuously process online applications. If your uploaded documents are complete, you can be temporarily admitted to the chosen programme. We will send you your e-mail user name for your student account and your admission record by e-mail. As soon as the University Admission Department reopens, we ask you to submit the original documents to the University Admission Department.


Receipt of the Student Card

Currently the Student Card cannot be issued. As soon as you have submitted the original documents in person to the University Admission Department, we will issue your Student Card.


Admission to an additional study programme at the University of Innsbruck

The admission to an additional study programme during the period of grace (to 30 April 2020) is only possible in justified exceptional cases. In case of further questions, please contact us by e-mail: studienabteilung@uibk.ac.at.


Admission to a continuing Master’s programme

If you have already completed a pertinent Bachelor’s programme at the University of Innsbruck for your admission to the Master’s programme, you can apply for admission via the student portal LFU:online in the “My study applications” section.


Admission to a continuing Doctoral or PhD programme

If you have already completed a pertinent Master’s programme at the University of Innsbruck for your admission to the Doctoral or PhD programme, you can apply for admission via the student portal LFU:online in the “My study applications” section. 


Prolongation of the 2019/2020 winter semester (grace period – 30 April 2020)

Currently we have no information from the federal government that the grace period will be extended.


Study programmes to be discontinued (end date: 30 April 2020)

Because of the currently limited options for completing the study programme by the stipulated end date (30 April 2020), the Rectorate of the University of Innsbruck has decided to grant an additional semester for its completion. The deadline now extends to 30 November 2020.


Leave of absence – civilian service

Students who volunteer for civilian service can take leave of the current semester. In case of questions please contact us by e-mail at studienabteilung@uibk.ac.at.


Courses during the summer holidays

It is planned that many courses with limited numbers of participants will be offered over longer periods, i.e. as block courses and also during the summer holidays. This aims at offering all students the possibility to complete the courses and not to have a disadvantage. Participation during the summer holidays is of course on a voluntary basis. 


Courses that cannot be converted to distance learning

Courses that cannot be converted to distance learning (e.g. courses in laboratories) will be suspended until further notice, whereby we work intensively on solutions as to how this can be dealt with in specific cases in order to avoid delays in studies. 


Teaching hours (easter holidays)

For the sake of flexibility, course times do not have to be adhered to for distance learning. Lecturers can also offer teaching during the Easter holidays on a voluntary basis and with the consent of the students (at least 90%) and the approval of the Dean of Studies. Further information in the University of Innsbruck Bulletin 1st April 2020, Issue 20, No 323. 


Excursions

Realisation

Excursions cannot be conducted at the moment.

 

Cancellation of all excursions

The following has therefore been decided:

  • Cancellation of all excursions that would take place until June 27, 2020 (end of semester). Any costs incurred will be borne by the institutes, faculties or the Rectorate. 
  • Excursion as an optional subject:
    Students do not have to make an excursion, but can choose from an alternative course offered (upon consultation with the deans of studies) or the teachers can interpret the definition of excursion more broadly. 
  • Excursion as a compulsory subject:   
    a) The course is planned as an EX in the curriculum - the offer must be carried out as an excursion at a later date. Please note the following point ("day excursions")
    b) The course is planned as EX/AG in the curriculum - the course can be carried out as an AG.
  • Excursions can also be arranged as day excursions at a later date (summer/autumn). If this is not possible, a solution should be worked out with the Dean of Studies. Please ensure that the overall workload is not reduced.

Application for the completion of the studies

Submission of the examination records

Please send us the completed examination records, which you can find at the respective study programme, per e-mail to pruefungsreferat@uibk.ac.at.

Passing of the final examination before an examination board or the Defense (Defensio) resp.

Preparation

  • Candidates who do not wish to pass the examination online, will get an exam date shortly after the “reopening” of the university.
  • The candidates will be informed by the examiner per e-mail that the oral examination may be held online if requested.
  • Candidates who agree to an online examination, will submit a scan of an ID to the examiner.
  • An examination date will be agreed on with the candidates as well as the used medium (Skype, Adobe Connect).
  • The functionality of the used medium is (ideally) tested one day ahead of the examination.

 

Realisation

The examination agreed on in time and form is carried out in compliance with the following guidelines:

  • Establishment of connection
  • Checking of the room of the candidate (e.g. pan shots).
  • Candidates sit (if possible) at a table that is empty – with the exception of elements approved for the examination (e.g. books, calculators).
  • The candidate’s camera setting allows the examiner permanent eye contact and a view of the named table.
  • Before the examination begins, the candidate will be informed about which documents may be used. The candidate has to declare on oath that he/she will only use the permitted an no other aids.
  • A short report must be written on the examination.
  • At the end of the examination, the candidate must be informed of the grade and the grade must be briefly substantiated.

SOWI exam weeks

Exam week 20 April 2002 – 24 April 2020

The exam week from 20 April 2020 to 24 April 2020 will be postponed, because we are unlikely to return to the attendance phase at this point in time and a change to an electronic exam format will take a little more preparation time.

 

Exam week 25 May 2020 – 29 May 2020

It is not yet possible to say whether we will be able to hold exams with attendance at the end of May or will have to switch to an electronic exam format. In any case, we will then be prepared for both.
