Small Group Advisory Meetings and Workshops

The small group advisory meetings organized by the International Office are very popular with our students. The meetings address topics concerning all phases of an exchange semester: There are small group advisory meetings which cover the application procedure, the process after a successful nomination, and also the return to WU after an exchange semester. We offer separate small group advisory meetings for bachelor’s and master’s students because the application procedures and the process after a successful nomination are different for these two target groups.

Small group advisory meeting: Before an exchange semester (bachelor)

  • Location: International Office, meeting room (unless indicated otherwise)
    or via your web browser (webinars only)*

  • Time: 2:00 pm CET (unless indicated otherwise)

  • Contact: Helena Dabringer (no registration required)

  •  

NEW: Starting in the winter semester 2019/20, small group advisory meetings will be held in German or English depending on the demand in the individual groups. The meeting will be held in English if anyone with no knowledge of German wants to participate. Questions may of course always be asked in German or English and will be answered in both languages if necessary.
