It gave me the opportunity to practice and learn the language in a relaxed environment, which I believe when learning a language, is a key factor.

Course recommendations
In hindsight, the experience was very leisurely. I now feel it should have had more weight behind it in terms how serious we should have taken this study period in Germany. Having said this though, compared to our German colleagues, who have the option of what exams they take at the end of the year, the UK version of the course was and probably still is much harder as we only had 4 years to complete it! On average it took our German colleagues 6 years!

Personal recommendation
It is quite small town, but one which doubles in population during the semesters. I found the lecturers and fellow students to be friendly, open with a great love for meeting people of other nationalities and walks of life and personally gave me a great insight into the academic and business of another country.

Oh too many to say, but the Stiefel was great for a real german beer fest, being a stop off for any hen-night in town. The Gruene Ganz for great grilled chicken sandwiches with garlic sauce. Guinness opened an Irish pub, but I can't remember the name of it. Must have been the Guinness!

The apartment was shared with 4 other people and gavme the opportunity to immediately meet new people and make new friends. The apartment block itself was a purpose built building with 5 floors with 2 apartments on each floor, all occupied by students which gave it a great atmosphere. The apartment and rooms were well kept, the individual rooms were big enough to house a small country and were situated in an ideal location in the town.
