Update - Defensio procedure during Covid-19

Since 16 March 2020, the University of Vienna has cancelled all presence operations, including regular courses and examinations. These have, since then, taken place virtually. Following the established regulations, the Chair of East Asian Studies has modified the procedure for registering and presenting the oral examination (defensio) for EcoS. This will remain in place until further notice.

You can find the temporary changes in red, in the guide below.
