Academic year calendar – important dates

Certain deadlines must be met in order to enrol for the first time or re-register at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. The same applies to payment and refund of tuition fees, applying for merit-based student aid and applying for leave of absence.

The academic year consists of the winter and summer semesters and the course-free periods. It begins on the 1st of October and ends on the 30th of September of the following year. The senate is responsible for adopting more detailed provisions regarding the beginning and end of the semester and the course-free period. The rectorate is responsible for determining the general admissions period for each semester in accordance with decisions made by the senate. Applications for admission must be submitted and student union/tuition fees must be paid during this period.
