Past Review Vienna Was Sick.
Yes. The music scene there is great. The people in my program were cool. - Harvard University View Entire Review
BEYOND WORTHWHILE - Fordham University View Entire Review
I've gained so much appreciation for Austria. So much of our world's art and music have come from this country, and I didn't know how much of it did before. As a musician, it is really beneficial I think, to see how a society puts so much emphasis and has so much support for the arts. I think it will help me advocate for them in... - University of Hartford View Entire Review

Yes. - DePauw University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I have a new understanding of other people, and of myself. I think I will keep what I have learned with me forever. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review
This experience makes me want to continue to studying abroad for many years to come. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Now I definitely want to study abroad again, if I get the chance. It changed my perception of Eastern Europe for the better. I'm so glad I did it. I had the greatest time and I'm sure that view is unaminous within our group. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I have become more aware of cultural differences and how attitudes can be so entirely different and shape a culture. I am a lot better at handling novel situations with a minimum of frustration. I love learning about other cultures, and it was fantastic to be immersed in a different culture. - Rice University View Entire Review
The musical experiences were invaluable. The University of Hartford is completely incapable of giving a legitimate education. The experience is what you make of it. You can either take in everything the city has to offer, or study while taking a 5 month vacation. I saw many students do the latter, and I know they won't regret th... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Of course! Language improvement. Made many international friends. Learned many interesting things about central Europe and European culture. Had an opportunity to see the real differences between cultures. Taught me that many more things exist in the world than I could/have actually imagined. - Austin College View Entire Review
Past Review Great
Yes - Providence College View Entire Review
absolutely. - Trinity University View Entire Review
My world-view was positively impacted as well as my appreciation for other world cultures. I have a strong desire to travel and teach abroad. - University of Denver View Entire Review
I improved my German language skills, discovered how another people live, and tested my ability to start in a new place. I would do it again despite the less than satisfying intellectual experience in the classroom. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Best thing I've every done!!! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Yes, it was very worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Programs in Vienna:



  • Vienna - European Society & Culture: Offering both English- and German-taught courses, the IES Abroad Vienna European Society & Culture program allows you to study the culture, history, business, and politics of a region that continues to play a major role on the world stage. You can also enroll in an internship or field experience, which includes time spent working at your placement in addition to an academic seminar that helps you contextualize what you’re learning.


  • Vienna - Music: Home to an astounding number of legendary composers—from Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven to Brahms, Mahler, and Schoenberg—Vienna maintains an incredible richness of musical culture to this day. The world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Musikverein, and the Staatsoper are just a few of the many leading institutions that help make Vienna a true “city of music”—and make it the perfect location for an engaging study of Music History and Performance. The IES Abroad Vienna Music Program is ideal for students majoring or minoring in Music, and offers you the opportunity to participate in a wide selection of courses focusing on Music and European culture and society. The program is organized in conjunction with the Vienna European Society & Culture Program.


  • Vienna Summer - Music History & Performance: Located in the heart of Europe, Vienna is a city of about 1.8 million inhabitants that has, since its founding in the 3rd century, served as a bridge between a myriad of cultures. As an important crossroads between North and South, East and West, the city became a natural melting pot for new ideas. Out of this cultural richness has emerged a wealth of artistic accomplishments and innovative thinking—a heritage that we explore in our summer programs. Vienna has been home to many of history's greatest composers, from Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven to Brahms, Mahler, and Schoenberg. To this day, the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Musikverein, and the Staatsoper continue to help make Vienna a true "city of music."


  • Vienna Summer - Psychology: As the famous psychologist Carl Rogers once said, "This is where all the trouble started!" In Vienna, the birthplace of psychoanalysis and home to Sigmund Freud and numerous other legendary psychologists, you can experience both the history and practice of psychology from a unique vantage point. Explore the richness of this city’s past and present in an academic environment specially designed for the student of Psychology. The program is organized into two topics: Psychology & Society, and Health Psychology & Communication. Students examining Psychology & Society learn about the emergence of psychology in Vienna and consider closely how different methodologies today both reflect and challenge Freud's legacy. Students studying Health Psychology & Communication take a more practical approach as they explore the field of counseling, and develop skills in listening and empathy.


  • Vienna - Summer Internship: Enjoy the history, rich culture, and professional opportunities that the political and economic capital of Austria has to offer. Recently ranked first in the Mercer Quality of Living survey, there’s nowhere and no way better to spend your summer than with a full-time internship in Vienna.
