Incomings

Incomings

 
 
 

Enrollment at Vienna UT requires proof of nomination to an existing exchange programme between the applicant’s home university and VUT (ERASMUS/Sokrates or joint study programme).

 

First steps

Introductory information about mobility programmes for students to Vienna is available through the University International Office. Their website www.ai.tuwien.ac.at/international/ offers a “Welcome Guide” containing all you need to know about orientation, administration, enrollment, and language requirements. The staff of the International Relations department also welcomes inquiries and can be contacted to schedule an informational meeting.

For a smooth semester start

The university’s International Relations department should have received prior notification of the candidate’s nomination through his or her home university. In the event of a delay, the completed “Exchange Student Form” (website download) must be signed by the respective coordinator of the home university and faxed to the International Relations department at Vienna UT.

It is recommended to enrol as soon as possible (at the latest one week before the beginning of the term) in order to have a registration number and a log-in for the TISS administration programme as soon as you start. These requirements are necessary to sign up for design studios online. To enroll, students must submit the required documents to VUT’s Department of Studies and Examinations in person (registrar’s office, website: http://www.tuwien.ac.at/en/services/department_for_studies_and_examinations/).

As well as an increasing number of courses held in English as part of the Bachelor and Master degree courses in Architecture and Spatial Planning and the Master course Building Science held in English, most of the courses taught at the Faculty of Architecture and Spatial Planning require a good knowledge of German. This above all concerns the courses in the basic subjects, which envisage active participation in the lessons as well as a written or oral examination. Supplementary courses to (further) develop your German skills are, therefore, strongly recommended. Detailed information about preparatory and accompanying language courses that are available at VUT (“Intensiv-Sprachkursen” and “Technisches Deutsch”) can be found on the International Office website.

Participation in the “Buddy Network” (http://www.buddynetwork.at/) also helps considerably in getting a smooth start at the Vienna University of Technology. Highly motivated and open-minded students accompany their exchange colleagues through the initial hurdles of student life in Vienna. 

 
 
 

Curriculum

 
 

In the ERASMUS exchange programme, students may principally sign up for any courses offered by the Vienna University of Technology. However, for organisational reasons it is recommended that students of the Bachelor and Master course take the appropriate courses in Architecture or Spatial Planning at the Vienna University of Technology.

Beyond a large selection of full and half-credit design studios (2, 4 and 8 semester hours), the faculty offers a broad range of lectures (Vorlesung/VO), exercises (Übung/UE), and seminars (SE) in both the compulsory and elective parts of the curricula that allow exchange students to enhance their knowledge in many different areas of individual focus. For more information, see curriculum Master of Achritekture.

German-language curricula can be downloaded from TISS.

Current course descriptions are published in advance of each semester start through VUT’s academic information system TISS (http://tiss.tuwien.ac.at/).
