Feedback of Exchange Students
"The sheer amount of courses offered at BOKU is not comparable to any other university, especially in my field, and I love the variety and freedom you get with that! Another thing I really loved about BOKU is the digital concept behind the web interface, which made the administrative part really easy, while usually it’s the most difficult challenge when beginning your studies at a new university."
Srdjan, Germany (WS & SS 2022/23)
“The Welcoming Days were really nice, they helped us make a jumpstart into this new experience, and after that it was a whirlwind of Stammtisches, TÜWI parties and other amazing events, which made it so much easier to connect, make friends and meaningful memories in the short span of 5 months!”
Vildan, Turkey (SS 2023)
"What I really liked about my experience at BOKU was the equality between professors and students: the professors are very approachable and easy-going. I was also impressed by the different buildings, each one of them having its own vibe and atmosphere. "
Laurens, Netherlands (WS & SS 2022/23)
“The amount of different courses that are on offer, the application process being easy and intuitive, the handiness of BOKU Online and BOKU Learn – all these things made my experience at BOKU really enjoyable. Vienna is also a fantastic city, with lots of different activities to offer, the cherry on top being that a lot of them are for free! ”
Anna, Italy (SS 2023)
“I enjoyed the courses a lot and the administration was well organized. Also, I was very happy with the small club at TÜWI where you can relax and just take a nap on the sofa when you are tired. Vienna is such a great city with so many options like museums and cultural events.”
Petra, Czech Republic (WS2019/20)
“An Erasmus semester is a great opportunity to improve your language skills and to meet new people from other countries. I really enjoyed travelling all over Europe with my fellow Erasmus students.”
Lisa, Netherlands (WS2019/20)
“The fact that you can take your dog with you is crazy. I love the concept!”
Ciska, Belgium (WS2019/20)
“I wasn’t a student but I worked here as an intern. The working atmosphere was nice. People were very helpful and polite. The labs are very big and the best and newest equipment was provided.”
Eliška, Czech Republic (WS2019/20)
"We joined the basketball team. That was the best decision ever because we could not only meet international Erasmus students but also Austrians. It completely changed our whole experience here as we really got to know the local culture and people."
Isabel & Arnaud, Belgium (WS2019/20)
“Great university, great professors, great city!”
Jordina, Spain (WS2019/20)
“The relation between students and professors was very different. At my home university there is a steep hierarchy whereas here you are treated more equally. Additionally, I enjoyed the “Stadtwanderwege” (city hiking trails) a lot. It is very nice that you can easily get out of the city and enjoy some nature.”
Célestin, France (WS2019/20)
"Everything was perfect - the view, the atmosphere, Donaukanal with friends, dancing at the spanish night...the first semester was difficult for me, but the second was awesome."
Paulina, Poland (WS2014/15 & SS2015)
"I liked the excursion to the winefields."

At the end of their stay, our exchange students are asked to fill in an evaluation form about their stay. In the form they can compliment positive things, mention difficulties and make suggestions for improvements. Using these results the BOKU-International Relations tries to improve the stays of future exchange students.
Here you can find the evaluation results of the last few years:
