The City and University of Salzburg Welcome Exchange Students

More than 360 exchange students from 57 countries took up their studies at the University of Salzburg at the beginning of the winter term 2017/18. Karin Dollinger and Vice Rector Sylvia Hahn welcomed them in the "Wissensstadt Salzburg". The evening was accompanied by singing students of the University Mozarteum.

Die ausländischen Studierenden kommen aus fünf Kontinenten nach Salzburg und absolvieren hier in der Regel einen ein‐ oder zweisemestrigen Studienaufenthalt. Dies ist entweder durch direkte Kooperationen zwischen Universitäten möglich oder über europäische Austauschprogramme, wie das beliebte Erasmus+. Der Salzburger Studienaufenthalt startete mit einer vom Büro für Internationale Beziehungen organisierten Orientierungswoche, in der sie mit allen wichtigen Informationen für einen angenehmen und erfolgreichen Aufenthalt in Salzburg versorgt wurden.

Das umfangreiche Programm verschaffte einen Überblick über Studienmöglichkeiten und alle wichtigen Tipps zu Universität und Stadt Salzburg. Peter Mayr, Leiter des Büros für Internationale Beziehungen an der Universität Salzburg: „Unsere Austauschstudierenden von heute sind die Botschafter/innen von Stadt und Uni in aller Welt von morgen. Daher ist es uns ein besonderes Anliegen, sie optimal für den Einstieg ins Studium zu betreuen.“
