Gesamteindruck

Very good overall impression. Very funny culture and a lot of activities for jung people. Vienna is cheap city compared to Zurich. Moreover the teaching style differs a lot with respect to the UZH i.e. you usually do one mid-term per lecture and hand in one paperwork.                                                                                                                                              .

Vorbereitung

Plan lectures in advance. Try to have all your documentation up to date. Do not forget about introduction day.

Ankunft

01.09.2014. Arrive in advance so you have time to know the city before the courses start. It is always a good idea to meet people from your dorm/flat.

Another reason that speaks for an early arrival is the fact that you have to get your Meldezettel (your visa for your stay in Austria). Without the Meldezettel you won't be able to open accounts etc. 

Zimmersuche
Wohnen

Best is through friends if possible. Prices are ok. If you have no friends in Wien try to go to a dorm (book it in advance). The dorm I liked the most is called Molke, this dorm is very big and there is a perfect diversity of cultures.

Universität

Not as good as University of Zurich. Way easier if you compare them. Not very organized. You will lern how to work under different circumstances. 

Leben/Freizeit

Lots of possibilities, very big city. You can eat typical food, go to cinema, go to Museumsquartier etc.

 I recommend to enjoy all the little bars and restaurants near to the Donau. If you go to Vienna for the summer semester you can even take a bath.
