International Exchange Lounge

Each aca­demic year, WU wel­comes around 1.000 in­com­ing ex­change stu­dents and sends 1.000 out­go­ing stu­dents to one of around 240 part­ner uni­versit­ies. But how in­ter­na­tional are we really? The In­ter­na­tional Of­fice in­vites you to dis­cuss this ques­tion with in­com­ing and fu­ture out­go­ing stu­dents at our In­ter­na­tional Ex­change Lounge.

The event will give stu­dents the chance to net­work, to ex­change their ex­per­i­ences, and to dis­cuss the im­port­ance of in­ter­na­tion­al­ity and mobil­ity in a nice at­mo­sphere with snacks and drinks. After the net­work­ing part of the event, in­com­ing stu­dents will have the op­por­tun­ity to stay for an op­tional part of the event on “Th­ings to do be­fore you leave” with their re­spect­ive re­gional co­ordin­at­ors.

When and where?
Thursday, Novem­ber 29, 2018, 3 pm - 5 pm, Ce­re­mo­nial Hall 2 (Lib­rary & Learn­ing Center)

Who can par­ti­cip­ate?

Im­pres­sions from last semester's event...

In order to provide fu­ture out­go­ing stu­dents from WU and in­com­ings from WU’s part­ner uni­versit­ies with the possib­il­ity to net­work, the In­ter­na­tional Of­fice at WU or­gan­ized an event called “In­ter­na­tional Ex­change Lounge” this semester for the first time which took place on May 9, 2018, at WU.

The stu­dents were in­vited to ex­change ex­per­i­ences and im­pres­sions and to dis­cuss the im­port­ance of glob­al­iz­a­tion and in­ter­na­tion­al­ity both for their stud­ies and their ca­reers. The key­note ad­dress with the title “How global are we?” by Prof. Phil­lip Nell provided sur­pris­ing in­sights and il­lus­trated that the world is far less con­nec­ted than it is com­monly as­sumed.

To round off the event, the re­gional co­ordin­at­ors from WU in­formed the in­com­ing ex­change stu­dents about the last steps to take be­fore leav­ing Vi­enna after this semester.
