In short, WVPU fosters a culture of mentorship that opens doors and lasts a lifetime. Our focus on integrating research and teaching enables our students to not only learn about ongoing research trends but also actually participate in ongoing research projects, from archive research to interviews to lab tests. Students learn the essential requirements of participating in projects, meeting deadlines, and producing quality written and oral work firsthand.

By integrating students into faculty research, we engage and empower them in ways not typically available in traditional course work. This approach provides value-added guidance, encouragement, and support. It’s through this close interaction with faculty and exposure to a diverse set of ideas, topics, and approaches that students are able to decide on career paths and the next crucial steps in their lives.

“Webster Vienna allowed me to combine my different interests toward a bright future and build the foundation for a new career path. The fact that all of my courses were taught in English was very appealing to me. Since my graduate courses were taught in the evening, I had the flexibility of working during the day. Vienna is a student city and is so affordable to live in; there are so many things you can do in the city for little to nothing. I have gotten a lot of attention from my professors. They have helped me sign up for classes and even helped me land the internship that I did during my studies. Webster Vienna has gotten me excited for my new future.”
