University Preparation Programme Graz – Welcome!

Course and Exam Structure in the Fall Term 2020/21

Due to COVID-19 prevention measures the VGUH has to implement strict rules für the Fall Term 2020/21. If you think you have any symptoms of COVID-19, you are not allowed to enter the building of the VGUH before you clarified the situation with the Gesundeitsbehörde (Tefefon 1450). The directions of the Gesundheitsbehörde must be followed. These rules also apply to the Ergänungsprüfungen, which means you cannot participate in the Exam if you have any COVID-19 symptoms before having clarified the situation with the Gesundheitsbehörde. Please inform us, if you do not participate in the Exam due to directions of the Gesundheitsbehörde. Please be advised that we cannot allow you to participate in the Examination, if we believe you show COVID-19 symptoms. The means we also have to stop your Exam, in case you have already started. The course and exam structure for the Fall term can be found in the Guidelines and extended house rules. For more information visit the German website or contact the Lehrgangsbüro.

The registration tool can be used when the "Studienbestätigung" has been given to the office. Please pay the term fee as soon as possible to ensure you can choose your course (note it will take proximately 10 days to finish the university process).

Attention: you can select your choice of courses in the registration tool. The courses start Monday, 05.10.2020, but only after you selected your courses and they have been confirmed, you can attend these courses.

If you have trouble selecting your courses, please come to the office immediately.

Continuing students, who have not paid the term fee in time without specific reason (EPD attempt, Verlängerungsantrag), must wait to see, if space is still available. A registration at university is not possible during this time. Payments received after the deadline with the consequence that courses could not be offered, will be reimbursed.
