It is really the right place to meet people from everywhere in the world and to party all the time, but I think the language can be a problem because it's not really the one you learned at home before!

Austria is an interesting mixture of west and east and the culture is a conbination of this. The people are really nice and the dialects cute(don´t be disappointed if you don´t understand them all, the most Austrians don´t either!). With a little effort you´ll find all the information needed from the host university and the welcome guide was really good: read it carefully and you don´t have anything to worry about!!!

I think that there should be more contact between the students and their mentors.

Don't pack so many summer clothes. You'll rarely need them, especially during the school months.

As an exchange student, the school is pretty slack, so not much to worry about. Not very challenging sometimes, though.

If you are under 26 years of age, get a student discount card from the train station and you can travel for half-price on trains anywhere within Austria. Once you have it, if you are traveling back to Austria, only buy a ticket to the border and then buy your Austrian-portion of the trip from the conductor or at an Austrian train station before you leave the country.

Overall
I wish I had known...
Everybody should go abroad! I've been for 6 months to Los Angeles, then right the way for 1 year in Exeter in England, and 3 weeks later, I was in Austria! When you start travelling, you can't stop it anymore! It's a real passion to discover other ways of life! Although now I'll settle down here! Before you go? Keep in your mind the beginning will probably be hard! But it worth it!

As I said previously, I do not belong to the main University. The campus is huge, although it's not really a campus. Before, all the building were spread around the city, but now they made it easier and tried to keep everything close. The Business building is really nice, and there's a lot of students, as well as a lot of facilities.

It's just wonderful to be a student! I'm now finished with my studies (I had the graduation in June 2001 in England), well, I'm still learning german until February and then I'll start to work, but the best experiences I had were abroad. JUST DO IT!

Of the courses I followed in Graz only two were accepted by my home-university and I hardly found any matching courses. I didn´t know that beforhand and was really disappointed because I studied a lot in Graz and it was a waste of time.

The atmosphere amongst the students is wonderfull and the city is beautifull. The professors are very friendly and helpfull. The level however is not that high (in comparison to my home-university) and it is a bit chaotic.

It is very important to make contacts not only with exchangestudents but also with Austrians. The studentsorganisation organises a lot of trips (to Vienna, Prag, Budapest,...). You shouldn´t miss them. It is best to come a week before the courses start. That way you can get to know the city and visit the most beautifull places ( Schloßberg, Hauptplatz, Schloß Eggenberg,...) without having to hurry.
