This made me laugh. Catchy song and fun video


Well done to the students at Vienna’s MODUL Uni for making fun music video – not bad PR for the Uni and City.

Vienna ranked world’s 5th best student city


Interesting article here on the Modul University website which highlights research ranking Vienna No2 in Europe and 5th in the world for best student city,  it got me wondering how the university would rank in terms of best location and views given its position in the hills looking out across the city?

A Vienna walk – vineyards, drinks and Bill Clinton?


If you like walking but also enjoy having regular refreshment stops along the way then the vineyards near Nussdorf, Vienna, will be just up your street. In addition to the pleasure of walking along quiet lanes and paths you also get some great views out across Vienna:

I was a little disappointed on our walk the other day when the heuriger we had planned to stop at turned out to be closed (due to a late evening party the night before) but a further five minutes walking and we were happily sitting under the shade of a tree enjoying some grape juice surrounded by the vineyards.

One of the prominent sites on our walk was the Kahlenberg (a hill/mountain?) famous for its role in the second siege of Vienna when the Christian army lead by the King of Poland successfully broke the Turkish siege of the city. It’s also the location of Modul University, the sight of which stimulated the second discussion I’ve had in a week about US presidents. In this case it was the connection between Bill Clinton, Center for Global Dialogue and Cooperation (CGDC), and Modul. A story in the Modul Uni spring newsletter had talked about the CGDC first annual conference, addressed by Bill Clinton (amongst others) and that the CGDC  provides ‘thirteen scholarships annually for students from the Western Balkans to attend MODUL University’s MBA in Public Governance and Management program’.

Postscript to Study in Austria


The online piece about MODUL University was quite short, but I’ve heard that the university was featured extensively in the actual supplement ‘Europe Focus – study abroad’ published in England yesterday (26th May) by The Independen​t.

Study in Austria – Vienna’s MODUL University highlighted in UK newspaper


The UK’s Independent Newspaper has highlighted Vienna’s MODUL University amongst potential options for British students wanting to study abroad. Seems like a good move if you fancy a degree with good job prospects and the chance to live somewhere different – though I’m biased as I know a few people from the Uni and I’m of course a complete Vienna nut.  However, if I was looking for a good university (abroad which teaches in English) with the additional benefits of life in a city made for students, MODUL and Vienna would be in my top five to check out. The university also benefits from being situated on the edge of Vienna Woods with a wonderful view across the city.

The article says ‘In Austria, Vienna’s MODUL University has courses including a BBA in tourism and hospitality management, an MSc in international tourism and an MBA in tourism management…… 60 per cent of the university’s cohort is made up of international students from more than 50 different countries.’
