UAS Technikum Wien welcomes Incoming Students of the Winter Term 2018/19

With the start of the new academic year 2018/19, UAS Technikum Wien welcomes 40 new Incoming students from 18 different countries from all over the world, among which the Czech Republic, France, Russia South Korea, Spain and Taiwan for the winter term 2018/19.

To give them a great start in their new environment in Vienna and at the UAS Technikum Wien, the International Office hosts an Orientation Week during which Incoming students are able to gather information concerning their daily life not only as students at their host-institution UAS Technikum Wien but also as new residents to the city of Vienna.

Curious and eager for a new adventure, the participants engage in discussions surrounding Austrian culture, living in the country’s capital and studying at the UAS Technikum Wien. During their first week, they attend workshops on local customs and intercultural competence by Nicolai Sawczynski and receive a tour through our library by Margit Baier, head of the library. Another highlight marks the tour through Vienna by Eugene Quinn where our newcomers are able to get a good impression of the place they will call home for the next few months.

Incoming students moreover benefit from having a buddy by their side – a regular student from UAS Technikum Wien who offers guidance in the first weeks in the new semester and helps navigate their new living situation. Assistance is also provided by the members of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) who support our Incoming students in various ways. These programmes make intercultural exchange not only possible for our international guests but also give our resident students the opportunity to meet like-minded people from all over the world and to sharpen their understanding of a globalized world.

We wish our Incoming students of the winter term 2018/19 all the best for their studies with us and their exchange semester in Vienna!
