WUAS president Peter Birdsall visits students and staff in Munich & Bad Vöslau
Earlier in October Wittenborg's president Peter Birdsall visited both Munich and Bad Vöslau study locations for the first time since February 2019, just before the pandemic took hold.
Birdsall met students from around the world, including The Gambia, South Africa, Iran, India, China, Russia, Syria, Vietnam, Tajikistan, Nigeria Greece and Italy . He took time to informally meet the students and staff, discussing their experiences during the past 18 months and looking forward to the future.
In Bad Vöslau Birdsall was joined by Wittenborg's lecturer Radostina Zasheva who had travelled from Bulgaria to teach Research Methods. Director of ITM Hans Lichtenwagner, WUAS partner in Austria, said he was extremely pleased with the international mix of students this year, considering all the difficulties that Covid pandemic had presented.
In Vienna Birdsall also managed to meet up with WUAS' senior lecturer Dr Alex Bauer, and Wittenborg's Webmaster Denis Schuh.
Whilst in Munich a few days later, Birdsall held conversations with director of studies Sascha Liebhardt and in the evening enjoyed a relaxed evening meal with students and faculty in a typical Bavarian restaurant.
