International Office regularly organises internationale events at Wels Campus:
- International Evenings
- Photo Competitions for Incomings and Outgoings
- International short term programmes
- English Lunches
- and many more!
Students, Staff as well as family and friends are most welcome to join!
Once or twice a semester, the International Office organizes a so-called "International Evening". The incoming exchange students as well the returned Outgoing exchange students usually present their experiences from abroad. This is a great opportunity to learn more about an exchange semester and to enjoy an international atmosphere and culinary delights from many different countries.
Next dates for International Evenings are:
17-20h, Aula, Wels Campus
1 December 2016 - Presentation by the new international students
12 January 2017 - Presentation by the returned Outgoing exchange students
30 March 2017 - Presentation by the new incoming exchange students
During OpenDay in March, the best pictures taken by Outgoing exchange students during their semester abroad are awarded.
Usually more than 60 students from Wels Campus go abroad during winter semester for an exchange program. As Wels Campus has more than 85 Partner Universities, the photos are very diverse, funny and inspiring, from many different destinations such as South Korea, Thailand, the US, Ireland or Finland.
Photos from Incoming exchange students are collected every semester and prizes are awarded during International Evening.
The 4th International Summer Academy in Engineering for Women (ISAE4W) takes place from 11-26 July 2017.
It is a two and a half week intensive summer programme for girls and young women (ages 18-25) in the areas of Natural Sciences, Engineering and Technology as well as Computer Science and Informatics
The first Wednesday of every month the International Office invites all students and staff members to join English Lunch. There will be some tables in Mensa reserved for those, who’d like to join in and speak English during lunch time. English Lunch is an opportunity for students and staff to practice their English language skills in an informal atmosphere.
Starting from Summer Semester 2016 there will be additional "special edition English Lunches" - two lunches per semester will have a specific country focus where natives and other experts will join - this will be your chance to get to know those countries! :)
