This study abroad program had everything you could think of to make a great study abroad experience. The staff makes adjusting to a new city easy and fun, starting from the orientation weekend and settling into our housing. The housing is great, a lot
of the apartments are near the city center and close to other student apartments. Throughout the year IES hosts several different trips for students, and throughout both semesters I went on each of them. The three city trips were inexpensive and a great money saver, and I got to see a lot of different areas of Austria I would not of seen otherwise, and they were a lot of fun. The ski snowboard trip was my favorite because of the deal we got on the rentals, and the fact that we went with so many other students, there was always someone to ski with whether you were just learning or experienced. The best part of the program was the range of academics they offered, since you could take classes at both the IES center and the University of Vienna. The teachers at IES are great because they really try to get you out of the classroom and explore the city, and really engage the students. For example in my art history classes we spent most of the time in different museums, and even got free museum passes from them. Overall Vienna is an amazing city to live in, since there is always something to do, places to explore, and events the city is planning. IES is very good about informing students of the different events being thrown around the city. One can even get internships through IES. If someone wanted to live in Europe, I could not think of a better city, centrally located in Europe, and a better staff to help you get the most out of your time.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
