About the country

Location of the place

The location in my opinion is truly great. Perfect to travel arround. Especially attending various weekends in neighbour countries such as Hungary or Slovenia.


Graz is a student-ish city. Cozy and quite small. Everything is practicly reachable by walk. People bike a lot there.

Surroundings (possible trips, ...)

Its Austria! Countless places for hikes and beatiful lakes.



Big data consultancy

Work description

Worked in Knowledge Visualisation department.
UI/UX design
Frontend - JS, HTML,CSS

Salary (sufficient for local conditions?)

Got 1000€ before taxes, was enough to eat and travel arround.

Language requirements

Basicly English. Knowing german would be handy but didnt affect my work at all.

Accommodation (price, who provided it)

Stayed at local dorm - Liebiggasse street.
Its really a convinient place to move arround and party :D

Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

Locals were cool and very very nice. There was a regular table every week with free pizzas :) and as we all know interesting conversations and getting know new people happens over good pizza :D.

Meeting other foreign students

We were all living at the same place. And on my farewell party there was arr. 15 people all from different countries what else I can say to that :). Talking about differences of our cultures, sharing food and cooking methods became our daily bread. I considered them as my family.

Sport and culture

I will never forget the public watching of footbal when the national team was playing. Obviously they as post-austrian monarchy countries like drinking beer. Still the Czech beer is better.

Food, local specialties

The Shnitzel in the bread from SPAR
and my favorite soda - Almdudler

Other information

Possibilites to communicate with the Czech Republic

Prague is 6hour far by train from Graz. But I was rather sending pigeons. Who use FB or Skype these days?..

Recommendations for students who will go to the same place

Learn german

What not to forget with you

Lights for a bike.

Benefits of the internship

Learning how to walk into the office (small talks are far more important than you thought), when to take breaks (its all about coffee in IT firms).

Cooperation with IAESTE in the foreign country

Smooth, fast and clear.

Overall experience with IAESTE

In a nutshell -> amazing, super cool, extraordinary, unforgetable.
