Only fly to Hahn if you are saving money. Fly to Frankfurt if you want to save your hair. Try halls for a semester as you will meet loads of people. Read Review

HOUSING    
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Halls, but far from Uni
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I have moved out of halls in to a shared flat and, although more expensive, it is much nearer the Uni and the town center. You can still visit your friends after all!
Personal comments:
'Camp Pieri'halls were a 25 minute bus ride from the Uni. They are very large with 200+ students and an amazing student community atmosphere. 4 to a flat. Cheap and big! Friedrich Naumann is closer to town and Uni but only two to a flat and rarely any student mixing.

ACADEMIC    
My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
Very easy to get carried away and do high level ones, but when it comes to exams be wary - very strict marking. Check out as many lecturers as possible as it is their teaching which will affect your eventual pass/fail!



My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
KEY:
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Overall
Personal comments:
There are now very good computers at the Uni, but no printers. Teaching is generally eratic, with some lecturers very passionate about their subject and others boring. Uni is on at least two camus', so I am only reviewing the business one.

Language difficulties
Social
KEY:
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: German
Was learning German a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my German
How much did you improve your German?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
If you want to speak German, do not meet any of the foreign students. I did meet them so was destined to speaking English for the whole semester. Of course in lessons and at work you speak German but still, nothing would beat a German group of friends or girlfriend!
