The University of Vienna Winter School takes place in Vienna, the capital of the former Habsburg Monarchy (and Austria of today) where traces of the outstanding culture of the late 19th and the beginning of the 20th century are still visible.

This experience has been absolutely amazing, travelling has never been a financially feasible option; however, with the short-term program, it's nearly the same as studying at home. I had a fantastic time and learnt a lot about Europe and was able to meet a lot of multinational friends. I learnt that the worlds a lot smaller place than I thought and how to better myself on an international level with regards to social interactions.

Overall I had a fantastic time and loved my trip overseas, completing the exchange allowed me to see a whole new part of the world and a new culture that I'd never seen before.
