September 11, 2019 Austria Is Great
I learned to be patient. It was worth it. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned so much! I learned how to be an independent adult. I learned about navigation, first aid, and safety. As well as adventure and the nuances of different cultures. - Berea College View Entire Review
I was able to understand how I interact with people when it was just me, and helped me to understand how the rest of the world moves around on a daily basis. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned how to appreciate other languages. - Berea College View Entire Review
Past Review Salzburg 2015
I learned that there isn't some mystical magical veil over countries abroad. It's just another place like where we live with people like us. Yes, the culture and architecture is different, but it's also much older than ours and that is where the beauty lies for me. I was very grateful for this opportunity and would love to have ... - Berea College View Entire Review
I fell in love with the city! The friends I made will be friends for a lifetime. I am much more confident traveling and want to take my family back next summer. - Xavier University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about European culture and lifestyle. I learned a lot about Mozart and music history (which is my major). I learned some German phrases and how to travel a little bit in Europe. I gained a new appreciation for music in general. I learned how to be more independent. - Berea College View Entire Review
Discovering how it's like to be by yourself in a foreign country. - Berea College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. It truly was. My heart will always have a place for Austria. - Berea College View Entire Review
I gained a much more global perspective on life/humanity. I really appreciated seeing such a clean and beautiful city; it's something I'll never forget. - Berea College View Entire Review
It was hardly worthwhile, was a nice visit but the program was so poorly put together. - Berea College View Entire Review
I believe the program was very worthwhile. I gained an entirely new perspective on myself and my own culture, learned much from my interactions with others, and believe myself to have matured through my travels. The credit from the classes I took is a nice bonus. - Bellarmine College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with KIIS: Salzburg - Experience Salzburg (Summer)
More than anything, I feel like the musical takeaways were what will really stick with me after this experience. I learned so much about myself as a musician by being in such a musically rich program and city. I also feel that I am a smarter and more efficient traveler as a result of this program. It was ABSOLUTELY worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I learned more about myself than anything. It was definitely worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
This was definitely worthwhile. I found myself, and I made lifelong relationships. I learned that life isn't about always getting something done, and working like crazy. I found myself enjoying my surroundings even more. - Trinity University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with KIIS: Salzburg - Experience Salzburg (Summer)
Friends, relationships, reuniting with family, fans......everything was what I wanted it to be! - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned that in order to actually learn in another culture, you have to have an open mind and be there to learn not just to have fun. The experience was completely worthwhile and I would actually move to Salzburg if I was able. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned new perspectives from students who go to universities, the ability to sing with with people from other universities. I also learned to conduct. - Western Kentucky University View Entire Review
the highlight for me was the interest in the environment which Austrians show. - Berea College View Entire Review
The importance of Mozart. The importance of exploring an unknown area. It was extremely worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review
it was very worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review

About

Since 1990, the KIIS summer program in Salzburg, Austria has offered students a unique opportunity to study, practice, and perform music in this beautiful European city. Birthplace of Mozart and home to the world famous Mozarteum, Salzburg has long been renowned as an international and historical music center.   

The Salzburg program lasts 34 days. Both vocal and instrumental music courses are offered in English and students have the opportunity to participate in choral performances as part of their Salzburg study abroad experience. Like all visitors to Salzburg, KIIS students enjoy free entry to concerts, recitals, and masterclasses at the Mozarteum and other venues. On weekends, students may travel independently in Austria and beyond.

Please note: All courses are taught in English and are geared towards Music majors, although students from all disciplines are welcome. Students with some German language proficiency will be able to improve their speaking skills as well as their knowledge of Germanic culture through interactions with locals and explorations of Salzburg and the rest of this spectacular region.
