Nora Schuster, MSc – Director & Founder
I was educated at United Nations International School (UNIS), New York City and Vienna International School (VIS), Vienna, where I graduated with an IB Diploma in 1986. I graduated from Vienna University in 1993 with a master’s degree in Biology (in the field of Sociobiology) and later with a second degree in Child & Youth Psychotherapy. I have successfully guided and counseled IB students and their families within the field of IBDP over the last 18 years.
My son recently graduated with an IB Diploma from Vienna International School and will continue his studies in Canada; my daughter and two of my three stepsons are already pursuing their liberal arts degrees at 3 different wonderful colleges in the United States and my youngest stepson is in secondary school.
I greatly appreciate the benefits provided by an international education, and wholeheartedly support the ideals of the International Baccalaureate Organisation.
I regard IBWISE as a means to deliver maximum support to IB students on their paths to a successful education in the world´s leading universities. I will personally ensure that your stay in Vienna is enjoyable, interesting and, most of all: highly rewarding!

Our Campus Supervisors
IBWISE places 1-2 responsible campus supervisors on campus 24 hours a day during revision camps. This ensures that IBWISE students and faculty are supported and cared for in the best possible way during their stay in Vienna.
All our campus supervisors hold at least 3 years of teaching and/or counseling experience. They all have been working within the international community and hence know exactly what is important for students with an international background of this age group and how to engage with them in a professional, caring, funny and respectful manner.
Whilst being extremely well organized and responsible about our students’ well being, they are all fantastic communicators and help our students to shine and make many friends within the IBWISE community!
Languages: English and German
Our campus supervisors are supported by a fabulous team of highly motivated university students, many of who are IB- and IBWISE alumni. Together they are responsible for all aspects of student life on campus including free time activities during the summer programme. They make sure that your stay with us in Vienna becomes an unforgettable experience!
