ISUWU participants can benefit from various cultural and social activities organized by the ISUWU team. These activities give participants the opportunity to get to know life in Vienna, Austria and their fellow students at the same time. The social program is a mix of social, cultural and international events. Activities may include tours of world-famous museums like the "Albertina" or a visit to a traditional Viennese "Heuriger", where students can experience the unique atmosphere of a typical Austrian wine tavern.
Please be assured that all social activities will be organized in accordance to public health requirements.
What social activities can I expect?
Click to see what a typical week 1 may look like. Please be assured that the social program will be in accordance to public health requirements.
What is the International Cultural Evening?
An "International Cultural Evening" will be held during the program. This event gives participants an opportunity to present their home country to their fellow students by preparing a typical national dish, giving a presentation or performing a dance, so that all participants not only get an impression of Austrian culture but also of the different countries represented by the students. There are no limits to creativity!
Will I have to pay to take part in social activities?
It depends on the type of social activity. For instance, a city tour of Vienna is organized for all ISUWU students by the organizers. For other activities such as visits to museums or the like, students must cover the admission fees (usually 5 - 15 EUR) themselves.
The ISU WU team made sure we had an amazing time outside of classes with an amazing variety of different activities that helped us explore both, traditional and modern Vienna. I loved how open and supportive everybody was. I felt enormous positive energy coming fom the ISU WU team.
