The university is great, the only thing that could be better is the exam system which is similar to schools. It makes it really hard sometimes.

It is an excellent university of applied science in Viena. I like it very much because of smalls groups that allow us to interact properly with our lectures. Furthermore, lecturers are very friendly and always have willing to help the students. One problem that I met was that as an international student, I would like to have in my curriculum German classes as well.

The teachers were very patient and ready to help anybody that was struggling or had any questions. The atmosphere in most of the classes was very pleasant. All other participants were very open to meeting new people and experiencing new things. Had a lot of fun with them. A big part of the experience was the ESN that helped us bond and organized several fun events for us...
