Study Visit to UN-Headquarters and Other International Organisations in Vienna
August 23-28, 2020Vienna, Austria
Vienna is indeed one of the most beautiful cities in the world! We invite students, recent graduates, as well as anyone interested in international relations to participate in a fascinating study trip to one of the 4 headquarters of the United Nations – to the UN headquarters in Austria. Moreover, you will have a chance to visit other International Organisations and broaden your horizons in charming Vienna!
During the trip, students will be able to not only visit the UN building and other International Organisations but also communicate with the staff and learn about their daily work. And especially for the group, a series of lectures about the UN as a whole and its individual units located in Vienna will be organised. The lectures will be conducted by the employees of various departments of the United Nations.
Thus, on one hand, the Study Visit will give an idea of the immediate work of the organisations, and on the other hand, will allow to directly communicate with the staff of various departments. In addition, the program has entertaining and cultural elements. Vienna is more than three thousand years old! The architecture of Vienna covers all major styles from Gothic and Renaissance to postmodernism. It is also a centre for music due to a long line of famous musicians who lived and worked in this city: Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert, Brahms, etc. Also, various musical events (such as New Year’s Concert or annual ball at the Vienna Opera) take place there. Study Visit will give you time to join a city tour and explore this amazing city. Also, you have a chance to spend a whole day on leisure activities and museum visits.
After the program students will receive a certificate confirming participation in a study trip to the United Nations and other International Organisations in Vienna. This Study Visit is an extremely interesting event that combines educational, cultural and entertaining elements in one program!
