Final comments
I had an amazing experience where I have learnt to be more independent, live everyday with many people and make a very nice group together. I implemented a lot my life experience and my languages. I will go back with a more open way of thinking and especially with many new unforgettable friends. I would suggest everybody to apply for the eramsus program.

I wish I had known...
I never was told I was going to have such a good time and that it was going to be so easy to meet people, so I was a bit nervous before I left for no reason!

Nice University with some minor issues

Austria, Undergraduate
Informatics, 2020
Overall
Studying at the Vienna University of Economics was one of the greatest experiences in my career. I was able to constantly meet new people and get a broad knowledge about various subjects. Thus the undergraduate program helped me to receive an insight into different areas without learning in great detail. 

This leads to the point that I wasn't able to specialize on a certain skill. After visiting a certain amount of subjects you get an understanding about how they are connected with each other, but on the other hand you are not able to be of firm conviction that you have learned the skills, which are required for job advertisements in the field of subject. The reason for this issue is probably that the University is putting too much emphasis on providing theoretical instead of practical knowledge. 

However, I think the University of Economics in Vienna is a great university if you want to make new contacts and get a broad understanding about how things are connected.

Pros
get to know many people, get a broad understanding of how subjects are connected to each other, nice campus, a provided system where you can look up professors and how students have rated them, central location
Cons
too few practical experience, too much emphasis on theoretical knowledge
