FAQ Students
Attendance times: Due to a directive of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research and in order to counteract a possible spread of the corona virus, from Wednesday, 11 March 2020 until further notice no attendance lectures will be held at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria. Details will be coordinated with the lecturers by the Heads of Studies in the coming days. They will contact you promptly with relevant information and agree with you how the planned courses can be held.

For up-to-date information we ask all students to check their e-mails, Moodle and LEVIS on a regular basis.

Examinations (incl. resits)
The decision as to whether and to what extent examinations (including resits) are held is at the discretion of the Head of Studies and is agreed individually with the examiners. In general, it can be stated that only examinations in very small groups are held in the sense of "social distancing". The aim is to prevent negative effects on the course of study or the duration of study as far as possible. Non-participation in examinations in very small groups is possible for students without any consequences in terms of study law; the examination can then take place at a later date. For this purpose, please cancel your registration or contact the respective course secretariat.


The reading areas of the library are closed until further notice! If you need books, please, contact us beforehand by mail, telephone or MS Teams (Julijana Wieser or Elisabeth Lechner). You can return books by using our return box in front of the library. But you do not have to, because the books will not be due until further notice. Please, do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to help you with any questions regarding research or problems with remote access.


We kindly ask you to make use of the large online offer of books and magazines. You can find more information about the current services of our library at https://www.fh-ooe.at/campus-wels/studieren/bibliothek/.
