As the epidemic situation in Austria is currently deteriorating again on a daily basis, it is not yet possible to give a binding indication of the form in which the individual course dates will be held. Depending on the requirements of the Rectorate, the course will be held both on site, possibly in small groups or online. We will also offer one-on-one consultation sessions if needed. In any case, the first meeting on October 12, 2021 will take place on site in seminar room 2, where we will discuss how to proceed together. Please check your mails on October 12 in the morning in case of last-minute changes.
