Detailed information
Current Status:

With immediate effect, the traffic light system was also introduced at the university. Our Corona traffic light is currently set to YELLOW.

It is still compulsory to wear a face mask in all buildings of the university (exception: staying in a stationary workplace).

The minimum distance of 1.5 meters from other people must be strictly observed in all indoor and outdoor areas of the university.

Regular ventilation of the workplace, lecture halls and seminar rooms must be ensured.

Regular surface disinfection must also continue to be carried out. The disinfection of objects / devices that are often touched, such as door handles, is also one of the measures to be followed.

As far as possible, the sanitary facilities may only be entered individually.

The MUL's Corona Team, which can be reached at coronateam(at)unileoben.ac.at, is available to you at any time for questions, it constantly monitors developments in connection with the Corona crisis and provides timely information about current legal procedures.

Please support us by strictly adhering to the above measures to ensure that the MUL is as corona-free as possible and that teaching continues for as long as possible.

Updated: 23.09.2020

General admission for the winter semester 2020/21 starts on 8 June 2020 (Mo-Fr, 09:00 to 12:00 AM).

The entrance to the main building (8700 Leoben, Franz Josef Straße 18) is open. Wearing a mouth-and-nose protection is mandatory during your stay. We urge you to follow the standard hygiene measures (keep your distance, sneeze into handkerchief/arm bends) as well. A dispenser with hand disinfectant is available next to the entrance. The Registrar's Office is in the 1st floor. It is the student's own responsibility to leave the building immediately after enrollment.

In order to speed up the admission process, it is important to pre-register online. Please bring the following documents when registering for the first time:

  • Passport or Birth certificate/proof of citizenship combined with an ID-card.
  • School-leaving certificate or equivalent certificate
  • Social Security Information
  • If transferring from another Austrian university, you will also need to bring: Leaving certificate, student statistics form Admission to Montanuniversität Leoben
Student information on the organisation of courses

A lecture hall occupancy concept was drawn up for a regulated procedure, ensuring a minimum distance of 1.5 m (GREEN and YELLOW) and 2 m (ORANGE) between students in the lecture halls. If there are bottlenecks due to the resulting drastic reduction in the number of available places, for attendance, the following priorities will apply in all cases for courses (LV):

  1. Laboratory exercises
  2. Examination-immanent courses without laboratory character
  3. Lectures

Course leaders will inform registered students in writing BEFORE the course begins how it will be held. The Montanuniversität equips a large number of lecture halls with video/audio systems so that a hybrid course can be held for two groups of students at the same time: one group is present in the lecture hall and a second takes part in the course "live" via a distance learning tool (e.g. ZOOM or WebEx).
 

Lectures

GREEN / YELLOW: Physical attendance, distance, both together possible

ORANGE / RED: Distance mode mandatory
 

Holding of courses WITHOUT laboratory character

GREEN: at least 50% must be provided for classroom teaching

YELLOW: It can be switched 100% to distance mode

ORANGE / RED: Distance mode mandatory
 

Holding of courses WITH laboratory character

GREEN / YELLOW: Physical attendance in compliance with hygiene measures

ORANGE: As for green/yellow, in addition, a minimum distance of 2 metres must be maintained

RED: There are no courses at the university
 

Excursions and field exercises

GREEN / YELLOW: Possible if hygiene measures are observed

ORANGE / RED: Excursions and field exercises are not permitted


Exams

GREEN / YELLOW: Both written and oral examinations can be conducted in attendance or distance mode.

ORANGE: Oral examinations must be held in distance mode. This also applies to final examinations, such as, Master's examinations and rigorous (oral section) examinations. Written examinations may continue to be held in attendance, subject to compliance with hygiene measures and the lecture hall allocation plan for the traffic light colour orange.

RED: All examinations must be held in distance mode or, if this is not possible, postponed.


Contact tracing

Lecture hall occupancy plans (see Lecture Hall Occupancy Plans) with numbered seats exist for all centrally managed lecture halls. Only green/yellow or orange marked seats may be used at the given traffic light colour. All lecture halls are also equipped with electronic door signs with information on the current course or examination. These door signs also serve as card readers. Ideally, therefore, contact tracing is carried out via the SAAS system of the University of Leoben (https://saas.unileoben.ac.at). This involves registering students when they "check in" (= holding their student ID card up to the door sign) and also allocating a seat number in the lecture hall, which must then be taken. At the end of the course, students can cancel their registration either individually ("checking out") or centrally by the course director. Students must agree to the data recording if they wish to attend the courses.


Learning places

Learning places are currently only available at GREEN / YELLOW in the library.
