In view of the exceptional situation this year, we have decided not merely to cancel this event but to adapt it. We thus offer all IWs organised by us at UAS BFI Vienna and by our partners in Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark and England online!

This way, you will be able to gather international learning experience even in times of online teaching.

You will be offered interesting courses in business studies, marketing, finance and HR, largely for free. If you complete a course, it will be credited for one UAS course. You will not only get to know your international team members during course time but also in online social activities.

Even with a virtual International Week you will be expected to participate actively. Only second-year students and higher will be admitted. You can register on our mobility platform Mobility Online (see infobox)

Registration deadline: 4 January 2021
