„Best semester ever! Thanks. ” (Miguel, Spain, SS 2016)

„I liked the interesting courses at BOKU. Especially the nice team of tutors and events outside. It was amazing to get to know people from all over the world, their culture and food. I like the relaxed people in Vienna and the big alternative scene. ” (Andrea, Germany, SS 2016)

„I think Vienna is a beautiful city. It has a great public transport (very fast!). That semester was one of the best in my whole life and I had so many interesting courses at BOKU. I visited many countrys from Europe. I will miss it a lot. ” (Asia, Poland, SS 2016)

"When I introspect on my time spent in Vienna, I have yet to fully appreciate the dynamism of the entire experience. And each time I think back, I learn something new about the travels to the neighbouring countries, road trips on the spur of the moment and being immersed in this natural science environment" (Irshaad, South Africa, WS 2015-2016)

"New friends from different countries."
(Marco, Italy, SS2015)

"Eat Sachertorte, Kaiserschmarren, Marmeladepalatschinken and Schnitzel; eat Topfengolatsche for breakfast; drink Kaiserspritzer and Wiener Ottakringer; drink Zweigelt, Grüner Veltliner, Gelber Muskateller and Gemischter Satz; coffee in Cafe Liebling; Mariahilferstraße, Saunaparty, Museumsquartier, Tel Aviv Beach, Heuriger in Grinzing and Lisa. I don't regret it that I chose Vienna."
(Guiseppe, Italy, SS2015)

"The best at university was the way how professors make their lectures. The way of teaching is quite different to my home country."
(Celine, Belgium, SS2015)

"I also really liked the excursion from the university. We were in Tyrol and in Germany."
(Camille, France, SS2015)

"The funniest thing was the day at the fun park - Prater. We enjoyed all the attractions."
(Luc, Holland, SS2015)

"We did a road trip by car through Austria. That was great!"
(Martin, Slovakia, SS2015)

"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, WS+SS 2014/15)

"I liked the excursion to the winefields."
(Sallamaari, Finland, SS2015)

"In my opinion exchange students are supported very well. Info we received by email were quite helpful, e.g. the checklist for departure to be sure that all formalities are done before leaving Vienna. Contact with ZIB was always very kind and uncleared issues were eliminated fast." (2009/10)

"Any more help would be really too much." (2010/11)

Evaluations

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 Center for International Relations tries to improve the stays of future exchange students.

Here you can find the evaluation results of the last few years: 

2015/16: Winter semester, Summer semester

2014/15: Winter semester, Summer semester
