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.

Before an exchange semester (bachelor)

*NEW: Starting in winter semester 2018/19, we are offering additional dates for our most popular advisory meetings in the form of webinars, which you can attend from home or even while on holiday via your web browser. Please note that you cannot attend these meetings in person at the International Office. To join, please click on the link which will be provided on the top of this page on the respective dates, and make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed. We recommend that you join from a notebook or a PC since you might encounter issues when using a mobile device.
