Tell us your story.

Tell us your story.

You can go through studies in one way or another. Especially at the University of Vienna, there are many ways through studies. But of course, you know better than us.

We think it is important to illustrate these different ways through studies. This is why we want to hear your personal story: from the banalities of everyday life to the peculiarities of every individual person that shapes and influences life at our University. Are you doing your master’s degree in another discipline than your bachelor’s degree? Is German not your first language? Do you already have your own family besides your studies? Do you share your knowledge as a mentor? Have you already completed your degree programme and now have a brilliant idea for your own business? As a graduate, do you sometimes think back to an inspiring teacher from your degree programme and find that you learned quite a lot in these classes?

Your story shows the different ways of completing a degree programme and starting a career, and the obstacles you may encounter. Not to forget: Other students may draw inspiration from your story.

To bring your story into the spotlight, we will take a picture of you at a location of the University of Vienna that is particularly important to you. So, a free photo shoot is included. 😉

If you would like to participate, please send us a short e-mail telling us what you are studying and what the topic of your #univie story could be: humans@univie.ac.at

We publish the most exciting stories on our blog and share them with the #univie community and the world.

We are looking forward to your Story.
