The end of your stay

There are a couple of things that need to be considered at the end of your stay:

Confirmation of stay

If your home university requires a confirmation of stay, please stop by the International Office a few days before you leave.

 -> Opening Hours

Transcript of Records ("Sammelzeugnis")

The transcript of records lists all your grades and documents which courses you completed during your stay at the University of Vienna.

Please note: 

  • The International Office will not automatically send your transcript of records to your home University.
  • The transcript of records only lists the courses for which you received a mark based on your Performance  (such as a written exam at the end of the semester, a seminar paper etc.)
  • German courses are not listed in your transcript of records
  • Please note that marks for the winter semester can be entered until 30 April; marks for the summer semester until 30 November 

It usually does not take longer than one month for a mark to be entered into the system; this means, however, that most likely not all of your marks will show up in the system at the time of your departure. Should you urgently require a mark earlier, please discuss this with the course instructor in good time before your departure.

Should you encounter any problems regarding your marks, please refer to the examiner or the department's central office.

De-register your residence

Before you depart from Vienna you have to de-register your residence at a Municipal District Office . You can only do this not earlier than three days before your departure.

For the de-registration you need the following documents:

  • the travel document which you used to enter Austria (e.g. passport)
  • a completed residence registration form (“Meldezettel”) WITHOUT a signature from your landlord. Old registration forms and confirmations are not required.

There are no fees charged for the de-registration. You can arrange an appointment for the de-registration online, however, this is not mandatory.
