Student Reviews

The other side of the coin
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really liked the international feel of the program, so many different cultures and ideas to learn from, the program was well organised, according to me nothing to be changed.

Classes are taken but not continuously so it should be made regular.

Modern methods, interesting courses, updated material, polite and easy to find professors. Life is quite expensive in Austria. Supermarket costs almost as in Greece, but fresh fruit and vegetables are very very expensive. Suprisingly entertainment and night life are a bit cheaper (in some cases) The Erasmus grant covered around 1/3 of my overall expences.
