Courses


At the admission at the Study services you get a pin code for BOKUonline.
If you pay the student union fee with your maestro cash card, you can activate your BOKUonline-account immediately afterwards. Further information

BOKUonline is also the platform where you have to register for courses. Further information

Please consider:

  • When and where are my courses?
  • Are there any overlaps (especially for excursions, seminars and practices)?
    If yes, which courses can I take instead? - see "Scheduled Dates" at course description at BOKUonline
    It is not always a problem when courses overlap – particularly for lectures it is sometimes unavoidable (especially with lectures = Vorlesungen - information on course types)
  • Exchange students: If necessary, your can change you learning agreement within the first 4 weeks of your stay.

Important: Register as soon as possible – some courses (excursions, seminars, practices,…) can be full very quickly. How do I look for courses?


Of course we highly recommend that you attend all classes of the courses that you register for.
Yet, course overlaps are quite common at BOKU (especially at Master level and  if you do not strictly follow one curriculum). Therefore, it is important to check which courses require absolute attendance and which don't.
Lectures (VO): If you have to miss classes /leave early or come late regulary, please talk to the teacher about it in advance!
