Curriculum Changes and Reforms

Help & Tips

Requesting a change of curriculum is a rather complex process which requires several steps and different documents to be handed in.

Due to modifications to curriculum specifications and curriculum development or reforms, students may need to request a change of curriculum regarding their degree programme.

Such a request becomes necessary in the following cases:

  • If your current curriculum, or the curriculum in place when you started studying, is no longer valid because it has been updated. This includes cases in which a curriculum has been updated during a leave of absence or other interruption of studies, requiring a change of curriculum to resume studying.

  • If the curriculum has been updated during your studies, and you’d like to finish your studies within the new curriculum.

 

In such cases, students need to:

  • Request a change of curriculum by handing in the corresponding form (currently only available in German, see “Meldung der Unterstellung unter ein Curriculum”  available under Forms and Downloads)

  • Have their examinations recognised for the new curriculum. (By filling in the form regarding the recognition of examinations for the new curriculum, available at the website of the corresponding degree programme)

     

If you re-enrol at the University of Vienna after an interruption of studies (not after a leave of absence), requesting a change of curriculum is not necessary, but - in case the curriculum has been updated while you paused your studies - you’ll need to have previous examinations recognised for the new curriculum and hand in your transcript of records.

If you are looking for the specific degree programmes currently subject to curriculum modifications, and degree programmes (and their respective curriculum)  which will soon or already have been discontinued, have a look at the sites regarding Discontinued Degree Programmes/Curricula and Degree Programmes/Curricula to be Discontinued.
