GO GLOBAL 2017
Organized by the International Office, WU’s Study Abroad Fair 2017 was again a huge success. About 150 international students and former program participants represented their home and host universities at over 85 different booths and shared their experiences with attendees interested in studying abroad. External exhibitors, such as the ÖH Erasmus Buddy Network, AIESEC, Housing Anywhere, Campus France, the British Council, and the U.S. Embassy in Vienna informed students about relevant topics around their exchange semesters. The representatives of Universidade Católica Portuguesa won the GO GLOBAL 2017 Best Booth Award for their particularly creative ideas, beautifully decorated booth and Portuguese desserts. The event’s main highlights were the presentations by WU’s Dean for International Affairs Prof. Wolfgang Obenaus about the selection processes, by Barbara Moser from WU ZBP Career Center about the perfect motivation letter for a successful application and by Andreas Batthyany from the Study Service Center about the credit transfer after the exchange program. Two students gave insights into their exchange semesters in our Story Slam session and Maximilian Leithner shared a video with beautiful images.
The International Office would like to thank everybody involved for their valuable contribution and is already looking forward to GO GLOBAL 2018!
