Open questions

At last, school leaving exams are over, but still lots of questions need answering. If you are interested in technology and science but still need help deciding what you want to study or important details, you can get personal advice at TU Graz from 10th July to 5th September. Two students from the Course Guidance Office of the Students’ Union (HTU Graz) will answer any questions about studying and organisation of studies, living and financing your studies at the Students’ Union stand directly in front of the Registration Office in Rechbauerstraße 12. During the time advice about enrollment is given at the Registration Office, the info stand is occupied from 9am to 12pm from Monday to Friday – the same opening hours as the Registration Office.

Already decided

If you have already decided on a particular field of study, you can best deal with the formalities by carrying out the following steps:

If you only have a few questions about course guidance, you can go and get admitted at the Registration Office as soon as you’ve finished. However, you have to register yourself online beforehand. Compulsory online registration for the 2017/18 winter semester can be done from 3rd July until 30th November 2017.

Help with starting out: Welcome Days
