The university of Vienna is historical and is thus an attraction in itself. This public university was founded by Duke Rudolph IV in 1365 and is one of the oldest universities in the German-speaking world. Well known for its contribution in the field of Humanities, this university deserves a visit and wonder. At the time it was constructed, it was modelled after the University of Paris so people will find a lot of similarities between the two. After its inception, it soon grew into the biggest university of the Holy Roman Empire, and during the Renaissance of Humanism in the mid-15th century, it became home to more than 6,000 students. Do visit this university for a rendezvous with history!

Reminded me of my time in the UK. Such a beautiful university!
What to say about this place when you enroll in this university, as an Non-EU student, everything works perfectly and idyllic. The big old building says that you feel proud that you came here and you think it will also be accepted. But when you are longer here, a lot of things are changing, without your knowledge changing the curriculum for foreign students, so that you get some kind of punishment if you happen to come from countries outside the EU, for example, to increase your scholarships for which you are doing well while you are paying as though you do not have enough money to pay for it. Students from the EU pay only € 19 and the pardon and 90 cents with it, and you feel like you are not a man because they are doing this to you! And I do not know what kind of reception these people are doing here and what kind of learning should we get here? A disgrace for a once popular university that now looks more like a political propaganda with the servants in it.Sad..
It easy a beautiful building with a lot of history inside, but it's really easy to get lost.
Really awesome university for studying. Vienna (Wien) is one of the best place that people around world want to live including infrastructure, safety, transportation, health and education. This university tells everything about how good is this city. One of the fact that I was surprised was Karl Lansteiner, the one I respect the most, was alumni of this university who saved 1 billion of patients' lives discovered ABO blood type. There is university square(park) which is really nice and cool place for studying in the summer.
Nice old building with a gallery with busts of former chefs and scientists which belonged to the university.
