COVID-19 Update (30.06.2020)

  • The University of Salzburg Executive Board is currently considering implementing a mixture of on-site and distance learning for the coming semester. We expect to resume normal teaching at the university by the beginning of October, providing that there are no further restrictive regulations imposed before the semester begins. Details about how the courses will be held can be found in the course catalogue of the relevant departments: https://online.uni-salzburg.at/plus_online/webnav.ini (update expected in August 2020).
  • General Statement of the Univerity of Salzburg is the Letter of the Rector.
  • Students who returned back home and continue exchange studies online, but don't come back to Salzburg physically, please deregister your residence in Salzburg.
  • Students considering returning to their home country now, should be aware of any travel warnings that may apply to the journey. Check home countries' authorities's websites to find latest news. It’s the home countries' responsibility to support their students in organising the return back home. 
  • Students are very welcome to stay in Salzburg. This happens on their own responsibility.

  • It will no longer be possible to return to lecture halls and seminar rooms this summer semester. Exceptions will only be made in specific areas, such as certain laboratory tasks and some practical sports exercises.

A guideline on this will be published as soon as a regulation has been enacted by the Ministry of Education, Science and Research. Other Exams will be able to take place in university buildings in the coming weeks, but under very restricted conditions. We ask for your patience whilst we prepare the correct regulations for such examinations
  • Those who continue the exchange studies online, shall stay in regular email contact with teachers and coordinators in Salzburg and the sending universities.
