Welcome to our new EcoS Students


EcoS would like to give a warm welcome to its 35 new students from 29 international universities accepted for the academic year 2019-2020. You have been selected from a large field of applicants, spanning 31 countries and including 81 previous fields of study. We look forward to meeting you in early October!

What comes next?

  • After receiving the acceptance letter from the University of Vienna Admission Office, make sure to timely apply for your student residence permit as this may take more than three months to be issued by Austrian authorities.
  • The registration period for classes in the winter term usually opens from early to late September. In order to register for classes, you have to first finalise your admission in person at the admission office. Therefore, we recommend to schedule your arrival in Vienna no later than mid-September.
  • Should you not be able to finalise your admission before the end of class registration, please send an email to ecos[at]univie.ac.at, including your actual day of arrival in Vienna and a list of courses you would like to participate this coming winter term. Please note: The only guarantee for a seat in your chosen courses is allocation through the university course registration system. Late registrations can only be accommodated under exceptional circumstances and based on availability.
  • For more information, check our section on your first semester. Don’t forget, also EcoS student representatives are available to help with questions concerning your first semester. You can contact them as well as other students of the program via the EcoS’ student FB group.

Welcome to EcoS and to Vienna!
