 Austrian Highlights

Our new exchangers explored 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites on their 1st common trip last weekend.
Bright sunshine, good mood, everyone enjoyed the sightseeing cruise through the Wachau Valley along the Danube River, followed by a tour of Salzburg's Old Town, and on to Hallstatt, via the scenic Salzkammergut region. The accompanying buddies, Nina and Lukas took great pics - have a look!

 Back to FHWN as a regular student

My name is Angelica Iannuzzi, I am Italian and studied in my home country. After my exchange semester at FHWN I decide to move to Austria again to finish my studies abroad. Studying abroad has a number of advantages, like becoming more independent and responsible. In my opinion, students who study abroad generally become proficient in language quite faster than people staying in their own countries.

When I moved to Wiener Neustadt, I started a completely new educational experience that changed my attitude about university. I attended some of FHWN classes and I noticed from the beginning the difference with my University. I noticed that the lecturers were very well prepared, that they care about each student and they could keep the attention of the students during the lesson. Furthermore, I experienced a lot of practise in all my lectures in presentations, group studying, case studies, research and many more aspects, which I think, it is such an important part of studying because, with practice, you can integrate the theory and have a more complete knowledge of the subject. 

All those are the benefits that last students all their lives and make them highly desirable to prospective employers and that is why I choose University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt.

 Sweet Semester End for exchangers

Ice cream dumplings with whipped cream! The International Office had invited our incoming exchange students for a final get together, before everybody headed back home.

 Event for Guest Students :: Archery 

Shooting with bow and arrow.

All participants agreed – this kind of event has to be repeated soon!


Team event "Outgoings meet Incomings" :: adventure exchange semester  

On the 23rd of April 2016, future outgoing students from the 2015 Business Consultancy Bachelor’s year group met with our incomings students from all over the world (guest students spring 2016), in order to exchange as much information about “studying abroad” as possible and thus get to know one another better. This was the first time such an event has taken place and was hosted by successful coach and business consultant Ms Johanna Bernadette Flemming. Ms. Flemming created a dynamic setting and a delightful culinary experience for all those who attended. The well-chosen location Kultur.GUT.Natur was the perfect setting for this event.

To begin with, those that attended were introduced to "WingTsun", a Chinese Martial Art and unique fighting system that specialises in quick and effective self-defence. This was guided by experts of  WingTsun Schulen Wien GmbH. The focus was placed on the concept of mindfulness, that allowed participants to get to know one another and led to the core topics of

exchange :: culture :: challenge :: preparation :: agility

The association section and subsequent reflection part was followed by the culinary aspect of the event. The participants were offered a selection of delicious food and afterwards a barbecue was organised. This was a wonderful and informal way to end the event.

Study Trip to London, April 2016 

Master Students of the Business Consultancy and Business Leadership Study Programme ( Business Consulting & Management - specialization " European Financing and Risk Management " ) were given the opportunity to visit 12 companies in just 4 days, including renowned enterprises such as Bloomberg, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, OMV, EBRD and EBA . Another highlight was the invitation from the Austrian Ambassador in London, Dr. Martin Eichtinger. At all appointments the students were introduced to the respective institutions which was a great opportunity to make new contacts and establish close ties. In addition, the participants visited the University of Greenwich, which has been a partner institution of FHWN since 2014.
