Studying at a university is always a challenge. It takes many resources and requires a great deal of planning, discipline, endurance and sometimes personal sacrifices for the greater good. Successfully going for a degree depends on many of these and more factors.

If you decided to do so at an institution in a foreign country with a different set of prerequisites than those with which you are familiar and a language and culture that are not yours, it appears to be an even more demanding endeavour.

I will be the person at our institution to assist you with these and other challenges you might face when arriving at Vienna, taking the first steps in our complex university environment or being confronted with a seemingly unsurmountable conundrum of rules and regulations. I shall assist you in all matters of study routine and provide you with a helping hand  in order for you to find your way around and successfully achieve your goal.

I myself studied and taught in a variety of different settings: at the University of Toronto (Canada), the University of St. Thomas (Minneapolis/St. Paul), the Catholic University of America (Washington, D.C.), the Ècole biblique et archéologique de Jersualem (Jerusalem), the University of Pretoria (South Africa), and several other universities in Germany. I met a lot of challenges and made many enriching encounters during that time, learning through first-hand experience what it means to study and teach abroad. You are most welcome to seek my assistance.
