WiWi Aktionswoche 2021 - live & online

Welcome to the new semester!

Procedure of the WiWi Aktionswoche 2021

We will start the semester together with all the information you need. The WiWi Aktionswoche 2021 will take place with an hybrid approach: From October 4 to 7, informative videos will be published daily to help you get started with your studies. These videos will be online all week and you can watch them at any time. You can see a list of the videos in the programme for each day below. The week is divided in Bachelor Day, Master Day, International Day and Science Day. You also can participate at the Welcome Meeting in HS1 or watch it online. The award ceremony of the the Oskar Morgenstern Medal will be streamed.

Chat consultation with MS teams

Every day, you can also participate in a chat consultation via MS Teams. Each consultation focuses on a topic in the videos - such as semester planning. However, if your question doesn't fit in exactly, that's no problem either. Simply type your questions into the chat and our experts will answer them verbally or in writing, or refer you to the right person if necessary. The dates of the chat consultations can be found in the programme.

For each chat consultation, a meeting is created in MS teams. You can join this meeting as a guest with a link. No account is necessary! With this guest link you can ask questions. Please use preferably the web browser Chrome. You find the link to the chat consultation with the programme of each day.

If you have any questions, please contact oeffentlichkeitsarbeit.wiwi@univie.ac.at.

Individual consultation

Do you have several questions and would like individual advice? Our staff of the StudienServiceCenter will arrange appointments for online counselling. Here you can register.
