Info for New EcoS Students 2017/18

Dear new EcoS student,

congratulations on your admission to the MA study program East Asian Economy and Society. You were selected from more than 100 highly qualified applicants from all around the world to start your EcoS studies in the academic year 2017/18!

Those students who still need to provide their BA certificates will NOT receive an official notice until submission of all pending documents to the Admission Office (which is possible until September 30, 2017). With your official notice, you will have to register for our study program in person at the university’s Admission Office before starting your studies, i.e. before you can enroll in classes, set up an account to access the online portal u:space etc.

For the upcoming term, most EcoS classes will start from the first week in October. Please make sure to finalise the entire registration and enrollment process before the start of the respective semester. An overview of the EcoS course offer will be available online at the EcoS Course Directory in u:find. For classes, you can register only for a limited time in September. During summer, please regularly check the online course directory for updates. Additional information on course registration is available also at the Course Directory page under For Students on this homepage.

Of course, you will not be left alone during this exciting new period: The elected student representatives are happy to help you whenever you have questions on registration, classes or anything else concerning your studies. Feel free to contact them via email!

Before consulting our student representatives, however, you might also want to check out our online resources. The EcoS website as well as our EcoS Facebook Page are updated on a regular basis and contain loads of helpful information. Students informally also communicate via the EcoS Students Facebook Group, for example to share experiences and recommendations, and to announce upcoming events, such as the regular EcoS Student Round Tables.

Finally, EcoS will hold an official orientation meeting for all new students  on Monday, October 2, 3:30 pm in seminar room Ostasienwissenschaften (OAW) at the Department of East Asian Studies. This meeting is an indispensable part of your first steps into your student life here at EcoS, as it gives you the opportunity to meet with future colleagues, your student representatives, lecturers and EcoS staff.

We are very much looking forward to meeting you in Vienna.

Best regards,

Your EcoS-team

PS: In the case that you need to waive your positive notice, we kindly ask you to communicate your decision to ecos[at]univie.ac.at as soon as possible! For organisational purposes, please also let us know, if you plan to commence your studies in summer term 2018 rather than winter 2017.
