Overall
I study International Business Administration. The university is very small, I do not think we have more than 15 buildings. So it is pretty easy to get everywhere and does not require a lot of time to get from building to building. The downside is that the campus is not very beautiful, we usually have some kind of construction work going on every semester. The cafeteria is not recommendable, it is not expensive, but the food is usually pretty bad. Especially after spending a year abroad in a Korean university, the quality of the food made a bad impression in comparison to my Korean university.
We have a pretty good selection of foreign language classes. The one I went to, also had a very small class size (under 10 people).
The courses I take (or more like have to take) are very accounting, law and economics heavy (probably 40%). Because I plan to work in marketing, I find the amount of these courses in my curriculum a bit too much. I would like it more if it was possible to personalize your courses at least a bit more, but thats sadly not possible. All the courses we have to take are 100% selected by the university and there is no possibility to choose aside from 3 modules at the end of your study. We do have some interesting courses though, Geography and International Trade, Cultural Diversity, Statistics and Asiability where some courses that I took and generally enjoyed and found helpful in terms of just filling up the general knowledge for my major. One thing I would be really happy about: having more logistics courses. Only 1/2 of a module I had to take was about logistics, which I found to be insufficient.
The way we take our exams, I find very stressful personally. 100% of the final grade is your final exam in most modules. It requires less amount of continous work during the semester, but it is also quite easy to fail if your grade and work of a whole semester is decided in 120mim. In Korea I took midterms, finals, attendance, assignments and papers where part of the grade which I found to be a way better approach.
Our courses are not very big, which I personally like. The biggest course I took was a 120+ people microeconomics course, but usually its 30-50 people.
The university is in a good location and is easily accessible trough public transport. If you dont want to eat in the cafeteria, there ars also enough places you can go, mostly not even 10min away. 
We also have a good selection of English courses for foreign students, 50% of my curriculum is thought in English. The professors also teach in English even if the course is 99% German students, so no worries. 
Our club activities are very...sparse. After being in Korea, I realized that other universities try to offer much more clubs and student activities, so my year abroad was much more fun than what I can do here at home. So keep that in mind.

Pros
Good Location, easy to access, small campus so it is easy to get everywhere quickly, small courses, courses in English, lots of foreign language courses
Cons
Comparatively little amount of club activities, the library is subpar, Canteen food is not very good (but at least not very expensive), very little ability to personalize your major (all modules are 100% specified and its impossible to choose)

Overall
I am a student here since 2018. I must say the campus and the infrastructure is quite efficient. The classrooms are big enough and the teachers are really good and understanding. The campus provides a great international infrastructure for interational students and help them in any way possible. The career office organinzes a career day every year. They also keep career workshops from time to time. However, due to limited space there is no cafeteria and the library is small.
