You will receive the information and documents required for registration as soon as you have accepted the place to study in the application management section (via the electronic campus management system UWE). The registration period for the summer semester is from the second week in March up to and including the second week in April, and for the winter semester from the first week in September up to and including the second week in October. The 'Instructions for application' leaflet provides information on the individual steps to be taken.
Registration as a student or doctoral student in UWE also gives access to the UWE manual. A click on 'short guide to UWE' opens a window. Here you are requested to register with your access data. The manual contains many useful instructions how to handle the system, such as how to set up a study plan, learn about examination dates, and register for exams or cancel registrations.
Very important: We will send any important information exclusively to your UW/H email account. Therefore, please check your UW/H email account (https://owa.uni-wh.de/) on a regular basis. Please be advised that redirected emails may not reach you and you miss important information as a consequence; so we recommend not setting up email forwarding.
All students and doctoral students have to re-register every semester. Please see the next section for more information.
Information for registered students and doctoral students is available on the Intranet.
The 'Important Information' leaflet contains the relevant information.
Please contact the UW/H occupational physician:

All necessary steps to remove the lock flags must be taken within the re-registration period.
Please make an appointment with your dean within the re-registration period.
You find the form for re-registration/deferment on the intranet at: https://intranet.uni-wh.de/en/intern/uni-whde/einrichtungen/registrars-office/re-registration/
The 'study schedule' form (overview of further course planning) has to be completed by students exceeding the standard period of study, long-term students and long-term doctoral students. They will receive a separate email 14 days before re-registration.
Even if you plan to graduate in the current semester, we recommend you re-register for the coming semester since there might be delays for a variety of reasons so that your graduation would be postponed to the coming semester.
All lock flags must be removed by taking the necessary steps within the re-registration period. If you do not know how to proceed when a lock flag indicates an outstanding obligation, please immediately contact the Registrar’s Office for advice (either by phone or by email).
All registered doctoral students have to re-register for the next semester.
Please re-register and contact the Registrar’s Office.
We will inform you about all steps to be taken for re-registration by email. All steps are also explained in UWE (menu - studies - lock flags).
You will receive a separate email including the relevant information 14 days before re-registration. Long-term doctoral students have to take the necessary steps to remove the additional lock flag within the re-registration period (study schedule and appointment).
