Berlin is very big, so it's important to pay attention, where do you live and where is your university.

I wish I had known...
I wish I had known that the student dorm in which I stayed was not a very good option in terms of facilities. The pictures on their website were misleading so I believe I could have made a better choice in terms of accommodation.

Personal recommendation
I believe that the modules in this university are quite hard, considering the fact that they are also taught in German. My recommendation is that if students are considering to spend their Erasmus semester at the FU, they should be fluent in German or eager to improve their German.

Berlin is very close to the borders with Poland, so it is a very nice opportunity to visit it!

Either by train or by bus it takes too long and you get easily tired. Take some cash with you from home, because the ERASMUS grant comes very late. find a cheap apartment because they ARE! If you don't know the local language, learn it!

I had very good contact to students in Berlin before going, so I could ask them every question. Also the Erasmus office at the Institute of History was very helpful and e-mailed me to offer services if I had questions.

Get yourself a BahnCard, which offers 50 % off at any train travel you do in Germany. If you go outside Germany, get RailPlus fo a small extra fee, and get the same service outside of Germany.
