What did you expect before coming to Austria?

I anticipated to meet very cold weather and most people would prefer communicating in German to English.

Isaac Owusu Mensah, Keren Baidoo, Matthew Bio, Eliska Pravenková, Agata Sukhar and Mirela Imsirovic spent their semester abroad at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.

What surprised you here?

Almost everybody can speak little bit of English so communication isn’t all that difficult if you only speak English.

How do you cope with the studies at CUAS?

Studies are normal here, the lecturers really take their time to explain concept to the students.

Was it challenging for you and if yes in what way?

It is a bit of a challenge because of money and the lessons requires a practical working experience of which I have not and also not the opportunity to have that.

Would you come to Austria without the Scholarship Program?
