Situation of the Students

We very much welcome the fact that Federal Minister Heinz Faßmann has now publicly declared himself in favour of a neutral semester. This would make the currently difficult study situation easier for students (with regard to minimum duration of studies, scholarships etc.).

In this context, we would like to draw your attention to the social fund of the ÖH: Here students can find spontaneous and unbureaucratic support. The ÖH has decided to increase the usual funds from 6,000 Euros to 25,000 Euros. The rectorate has increased the social fund by another 10,000 Euros.

OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES

All employees return to the offices. Individual solutions are found for persons with special childcare obligations and members of risk groups (after presentation of a medical certificate).

The Rectorate will endeavour to find individual and appropriate solutions for all employees in consultation with the supervisors and departments.

All labor law issues must be clarified in consultation with the Vice Rectorate for Finance | Human Resources | Special Projects (vizerektorin_finanzen_personal@akbild.ac.at).

GENERAL BEHAVIOURAL MEASURES

Any members of the Academy who experience typical symptoms of coronavirus as fever or cough, shortness of breath respectively respiratory problems are asked to contact the public health service of the city of Vienna by calling the telephone number 1450. instructions. Inform your supervisor and the Human Resources Department immediately.
