DESCRIPTION

 

Vienna is the historic capital of the multinational Habsburg Empire. It is a melting pot of languages and cultures, and the crossroads between East and West. This program is run in conjunction with the German Department at the University of Illinois. Classes are available in either German or in English, and there are German-language courses available at all level of instruction, so this is an excellent program if you would like to take classes for a German minor. There are cultural programs available, including an optional ski week for those students studying abroad in the spring. Because of the ski trip, spring is a better semester for this program than fall, but the exchange is available both fall in spring. Students who participate in the fall will be given an early exam so that they will be able to return to UIUC in time for spring courses to begin. There is also a University of Illinois faculty member, Prof. Bruce. Murray, in Vienna who is there to assist you.

 

APPLICATION PROCESS

Apply by February 15th to study abroad the following fall and by September 15th to study abroad the following spring.

 

HOUSING

The International Studies Center has a number of rooms in five different student residences; living there is certainly one of the best ways to get to know your fellow students quickly. There are a small number of single rooms available, but the majority of rooms are double rooms. There is generally a shared kitchen on each floor. A housing coordinator is available to help solve any housing-related issues that may arise.

 

Minimum GPA of 3.0/4.0

This program is not open to freshmen, and it is strongly recommended that students in their last semester not participate, because their graduation will be delayed.
