“Over the course of 4 months, I made so many friends and met countless fascinating people who share similar interests as me. Finally, the knowledge that I gained in the University of Klagenfurt is unmatched: not only was I able to take courses I’ve dreamed of studying but didn’t have an opportunity to do so, but I also explored so many new themes and aspects of studying in Europe with the help of the most amazing professors!”
“I first discovered Klagenfurt when I was searching for universities abroad, and the city immediately caught my attention. It seemed like a picturesque place to spend a semester!
Luckily, I can say that this has been the right choice: I am being surrounded everyday by other students from all over the world, studying in a multicultural environment that stimulates everyone to be himself/herself.”
“If I had a second life, AAU would be my first place to come again!
All my professors were so open-minded and kind, all assignments prepared me to the professional life and the International Office was very supportive.”
