Review

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!
