UNI IS FREEZING

Inflation is also greatly affecting the universities, which are already ravaged by insufficient funding. The TU Wien alone is facing additional costs of over 170 million euros in part due to rising heating and electricity costs. Even with the toughest cost-cutting measures, the additional budget of almost 60 million euros promised by the Ministry of Education is far from enough to plug the budget hole.

The consequences are already becoming apparent: cuts in laboratory budgets, hiring freezes, and reduced teaching and research budgets, but also cold lecture halls, closed learning rooms, and further online-only semesters.

We have until November 11th to convince the Ministry of Education to increase the currently planned budget to meet the reality. To remind the decision makers of the importance TU Wien has for society and let alone us students, we are planning to take action on Monday, November 7th. Together with the rectorate, lecturers, and the entire TU Wien, we are going to protest for an adequate education budget.

Tuition fees extension curricula

Dear students of extension curricula!

Some of you probably got a notification or a warning in TISS that you need to pay tuition fees for your extension curriculum.

THIS IS NOT CORRECT. Theoretically now you would need to file a request of waiver of tuition fees; the HTU chair however, is already holding talks with the admission office to clear up the situation.

We want to encourage you NOT to pay the tuition fees and ignore the notification until the situation is cleared up.

We will keep you posted!

 

+++ UPDATE +++

As a short-term solution the filled out form “Antrag auf Erlass” needs to be sent to the admission office together with a confirmation of studies and the student id. An email to studienabteilung@tuwien.ac.at with the documents attached  is sufficient.

Long-term the problem will be saved with a TISS implementation (hopefully next semester). With this the tuition fees should be registered automatically.

Gwen has been studying at TU Wien since 2014 and wants students to get the support they need. She wants to create an environment where everybody feels welcome and comfortable. She has a sympathetic ear and listens to problems considering studies or beyond the studies. For her it is important to convey all the different opportunities that TU Wien holds e.g. regarding support, extracurricular activities and social events, to the students.
