Business Education

Education
Overall
The studies of business education is very interesting when it comes to the development of pedagocical competencies, practicing teaching, organizing group works, writing reports, doing presentations. Unfortunately, the focus is mostly on teaching in Austrian schools which means that you'll have to learn a lot about laws and regulations for teaching in Austria. Adult education or coaching in international business settings is neglected. In my opinion the degree courses are a little bit too unilateral.

It is a great way to meet international students but quite difficult to interact with austrians. Bring lots of money and travel too!

A lot of the good courses are in English. Don't rush to register on the first day of registration. I know people who waited for about 5 hours, I went a week later and waited 5 minutes. If you need help go to your mentor or the REFI(Referat für Internationales), which is run by students. The Uni has set up Tandem-learning, where you are put into groups of native speakers of people who want to learn common languages, eg Austrians wanting to learn English with Americans wanting to learn German. It's a good way to get to know Austrians.

If you need help with something then just ask someone, most people are happy to help. Don't worry about the bad service that you sometimes get in shops and restaurants.

Personal comments
The halls of residences are not owned by the university, but by private organisations. They are generally in very good condition, and are very reasonably priced, but tend to differ significantly between one another. I stayed at the international halles, the Julius Raab Heim. It was very well furnished with adequate facilities, but with excellent amenities. There is a cafe and a swimming pool, however this is mainly due to the fact that the halls double as a hotel. Organisation is very beaurocratic and tight, however we found our way round most problems. Tips: To have a glass of Sangria ready if the porter comes to turn the music down. Have parties in the boys kitchens as these do not face on the residents side.

Type of housing: Student Home/Heim
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Student home
Why?
I would choose to live there because they are cheap and you meet alot of people your own age there as well. They are nice to live in at the start of your time there because you need to get to know some people.

The accommadation at the university was very nice. The room I lived in had eveything I need but an oven but we managed without that. Our room was cleaned once a week and our bed clothes, which they supllied was washed every second week, so it was a very clean place to live.
