GO GLOBAL 2017

Re­view

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!
