Auf Wiedersehen Wien

Vienna, Austria was absolutely amazing. The land of classical music, äpfelstrudel and Sacher-torte.

I arrived to Vienna in the end of August and I left the city in the end of January. The experience was unbelievable. I can highly recommend the city and the country for a exchange, if you don’t want have big cultur shock. want to learn german and see beautiful places. Vienna was my number one choice when applying for exchange so it was like a dream come true.

I studied at a local business school called FHWien of WKW. Teachers were kind and professional and they understand that we were exchange students. I had teachers from around the world, from Australia etc.

I had seven different courses during my exchanges. For example Austrian culture, German language, HR-Management, Cross-Cultural Management and Communication Psychology. I think the courses very interesting and useful. Timing of the lectures changed every time in every week and sometimes I had only like two schooldays in a week. So I had a lot of spare time.

In my spare time, I traveled a lot. I visited seven different countries during my exchange, In Italy, Slovenia, Poland etc. Travelling there was very cheap and easy.
