What BEST Vienna offers

What is a BEST event like for students? Each BEST event is attended by 20-30 engineering students like you who have something in common: they want to live a unique experience, different from the day-to-day life of school!

What does BEST Vienna do for students? Our priority is to offer high-quality services for students from TU Vienna and from all over Europe. Throughout the year, we organise local and international activities and events where students have the opportunity to increase their international experience, soft skills, improve their English and have fun at the same time. Using the concept of a “Student – Company – University” triangle, we strive to build services that bridge you, educational institutions and the employers - our stakeholders


We offer the following services to students of the Vienna University of Technology:

  • Courses in more than 95 universities all over Europe throughout the year

  • Soft Skill Training: helpful life and career experience you won't find in your daily university-life

  • Leisure Events: Motivation Weekends, Cultural Exchanges, Bonding Events, Parties in Vienna &  Europe

  • Engineering Competitions: measure your strengths at a practical and academic level

  • Career Events: for assisting you in taking the first steps into your career life

How to apply to a BEST Event


Open an account on the BEST international website: http://www.best.eu.org

  1. Check out the list of season courses by going to the Events section here. If the applications are not open yet – don’t worry, check again in a few weeks. BEST almost never sleeps, so a list of courses will for sure be up soon!

  2. Choose up to three courses that you are most interested in, be it because of the topic, that city you’ve always wanted to visit, or - ideally - both! Watch out, sometimes the list is long (over 50 courses to choose from for summer season), so you might find yourself faced with a difficult decision

  3. Write motivation letters for the courses you want to apply to. You can find more information on how writing these hereFind some examples here. 

  4. Prioritize your applications: this means if you get accepted to two courses, you will be assigned to participate in the one you prioritize highest.

  5. Contact the Local BEST Group (LBG) in your university (vienna@best.eu.org) and ask them to validate your account. This goes very quickly if you can meet them to show your student ID and have a short conversation with them in English about the weather (to prove you have some knowledge of the language).

  6. Wait for the selection results.

  7. Do the victory dance when you have been selected to participate in one of the events you applied to! Don’t forget to confirm your attendance and pay the deposit to your LBG.

  8. Plan your trip, go there, have an awesome time with 20 other students from all over Europe and feel the BEST spirit!

  9. Return from the course, get your deposit back, then start dreaming about your next course. Get hooked on BEST. Join your LBG as a member and learn what it means to be a BESTie!
