Internationalization is one of WU's main strategic priorities. The majority of WU students gains international experience through a stay abroad at a partner university, through a double degree program, during an International Short Program or with an online exchange initiative.
The International Office reports to the Vice-Rector for Acadmic Programs and Student Affairs and is WU's central service unit for the coordination of international partnerships, networks, and programs.
Internationality and student mobility
Around 1,000 WU students complete an international experience abroad each year. In the same period, just as many international students come to WU as incoming exchange students. As International Office, we are the first point of contact for these students. We advise and inform students about their exchange stay and about options to internationalize their studies. Our goal is to enable all students to acquire a global mindset.
Staff and faculty mobility
Mobility programs such as ERASMUS+ or CEEPUS are open to university faculty and staff. We highly encourage WU staff and faculty to spend time at a partner university in order to bring new impulses and innovation to WU.
International university networks and programs
CEEPUS network and worldwide mobility
As coordinator of the CEEPUS network "Amadeus", WU has a strong cooperation network in Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe.
International mobilities are promoted through worldwide partnerships and participation in programs like Fulbright.
