Update: COVID-19 Info and Traffic Light Status

This page is updated continuously.

Especially now in times of the COVID-19 pandemic, our university of applied sciences seeks to offer you a safe environment for studying and learning. A new academic year has begun and we would like to inform you on the most important measures the St. Pölten UAS is taking as part of the traffic light system to protect everybody at campus.

While selected courses may be held at the UAS, we have also been increasingly implementing online formats within the framework of a mixed mode.

We aim to offer students and staff members the maximum safety. At the same time, we ensure that the students‘ study progress is not delayed and the quality of teaching remains at the usual high levels.

UAS Traffic Light System
