Go Global 2018


Or­gan­ized by the In­ter­na­tional Of­fice, WU’s ex­change fair Go Global was once again a huge suc­cess. Des­pite the bad weather, a large num­ber of vis­it­ors par­ti­cip­ated in the fair and took ad­vant­age of the broad con­sulta­tion of­fer. Al­most 200 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents and former out­go­ing stu­dents rep­res­en­ted their home or host uni­versit­ies at over 90 dif­fer­ent booths and shared their ex­per­i­ences with at­tendees in­ter­ested in study­ing abroad. Ex­ternal ex­hib­it­ors, such as AIESEC, the Aus­trian Study Grant Au­thor­ity, the Brit­ish Coun­cil, and the U.S. Em­bassy in Vi­enna in­formed stu­dents about rel­ev­ant top­ics around their ex­change semester. The rep­res­ent­at­ives of Uni­versitas Gad­jah Mada won the Best Booth Award for their par­tic­u­larly cre­at­ive ideas and beau­ti­fully dec­or­ated booth. Some of the event’s high­lights were the di­verse present­a­tions on how to suc­cess­fully write a mo­tiv­a­tional let­ter (Jo­hanna Hiebl, WU ZBP Ca­reer Center), credit trans­fer after a semester abroad (Andreas Bat­thyány, Study Reg­u­la­tions and Credit Trans­fer), and WU’s ex­change pro­grams and In­ter­na­tional Sum­mer Uni­versit­ies for bach­elor’s and mas­ter’s stu­dents. Two former ex­change stu­dents, Molinda Ch­hay and Dorian Aigner, shared their ex­per­i­ences abroad; Molinda par­ti­cip­ated in the ISU Ch­ina (Tongji Uni­versity) in sum­mer 2018, and Dorian spent the sum­mer semester 2018 in Sofia, Bul­garia (Uni­versity of Na­tional and World Economy).

The In­ter­na­tional Of­fice would like to thank every­body in­volved for their valu­able con­tri­bu­tion and is already look­ing for­ward to Go Global 2019!

That was Go Global 2018...
