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!

Personal spending habits
Telephone - no contract phone. International calls are cheap to England. Food is cheaper but I eat more. Accomodation is about the same price as South London. Nightlife is cheaper but we go out more as there is nothing else to do! Travelling home is obviously more.

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!

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.

Final comments
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.

Housing
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.
