When you begin your studies, you are expected to abide by certain rules. This might sound like nothing new to you but did you know that many of these ‘rules’ are also enshrined in law? If you want to know what we’re talking about, read the University Act and the section on study law. If you need a compact overview of your most important obligations and rights, as a student, you’ve come to the right place.
Laws that regulate higher education are subject to constant change. In 2002, three laws were replaced by the so-called Federal Law on the Organization of Universities and their Studies, or University Law 2002.

Interim changes, for example to the financing of study places, are also incorporated into the study law. Regardless of the changes in the law, universities and universities of applied sciences are making every effort to maintain study operations to the best of their ability during the Corona pandemic. This may also result in changes that will alter the framework conditions of your studies.

Dealing with exams is a big part of your studies. We have listed a few particularly important points for you here.
Now you have an overview of the most important rights and obligations as a student. Don’t forget though, that legal questions are often very complex. The Austrian Student Union (ÖH) is not only a great source for when it comes to student financing, play it safe and also get some legal advice while you’re at it.
