"S" for Speeding up your studies
WU students can transfer credits earned at ISU programs to count toward their degree. Consult the IO to find out which credits can be transferred when creating a program. The three-week International Summer University programs organized by the IO can also be credited as foreign experience abroad for the IBW major (IBW-Auslandserfahrung).
"U" for an Unforgettable experience and exciting cultures
WU-students have the opportunity to further develop their soft skills through intercultural teamwork with students in the host country. In addition, company contacts, field trips, and cultural events provide insights into the economy and culture of the host country.
