The buddy network was very useful and cool--it really contributed to me having a good time in Vienna. Don't spend all your time on school work, you can do that anywhere...enjoy the culture and entertainment unique to your study abroad locale. Read Review

Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Students Residence
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Residence
Why? Because there is where you meet people who are on exchange and you can arrange thousands of plans and parties. Also it´s easy to get an idea of what subjects people are taking which always help to have a friend in the same subjects...
Personal comments:
It was a dorm at the Prater, the suburb is not that good at night but it´s safe and many students live at the same dorm. There many subway and tram stations. The problem was that some "study rooms" were closed and they only opened for the cleaning women coffee.

KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Activities: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
My favourite places in Vienna was the Burggarten, where I used to go during spingtime with the other exchance students. My favourite nightspot was on the "Ring" and it was named Havana, there was really nice music and on Monday there was the student night. In Vienna there are alot of clubs downtown, like palais Eschenbach, a singular example of a disco in an historical palace. I miss walking downtown, eating in tipical Austrian restaurants like Siebenstern.

ACADEMIC    
by Rosamaria, Universita degli Studi di Trieste, Trieste, Italy
Business Studies, Erasmus
My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
The courses of the international program are in english and they helped me to get credits even when my German wasn't that good. Choose the classes as soon as the enrollment is open, they get filled-up really quick, given the huge amount of students at the WU. Take classes in German with regular students, it helps to understand their way of learning.



My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
KEY:
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Overall
Personal comments:
The number of students didn't allow everyone to get the classes one needed. I wish I had had someone expaining me the difference between a seminar a Proseminar, a Vorlesung, die Spezielle and so on. I understood it only at the end.

Language difficulties
Social
KEY:
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: German
Was learning German a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my German
How much did you improve your German?
My level before: Basic phrases
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
The exchange students could get along speaking just english since there was such a wide international program and most austrians speak it quite well. I went to Austria with a good knowledge of english and it helped me very much at the beginning, when my German was very poor. Along the year, thank to my room mates, my classes and my friends I achieved a good level of German.
