Find a tandem partner- either by enlisting in a program, or just make your own sign. I have a life-long friend because of it. Also, live with students where German is the common language. If you want to learn German, don't talk English, or be in the situation where you can!

How much bureaucracy there really is i Germany; it´s not just a myth! Bring your passport everywhere and allow for lots of time in the town hall in the first weeks.

Overall
I wish I had known...
My local university didn´t give me much information about the host university. I had to look for a lot by myself or with help from the Uni of göttingen. It would have helped to have here more information in my language and, for example, experiences from other students that had been in there before me.

Personal recommendation
I think this is a good University to make a course abroad. There are a lot of foreign students and because of this, the people of the university know what are the problems we have when we arrive there and they try to help you as much as they can. Moreover, the university is one of the most important things in Göttingen. So a lot of things are adapted to students´needs (it is not very expensive, there is a lot of nightlife, the university has very good facilities...)

Overall
I has been months since I first came to Goettingen. It is totally what I had expected: great facilities, cool faculty, great friends, nice dormitory. My program is really international, gathering people from all over the world. Yet, what I love the most about it is that this program is like a rendezvous of all people who have the same interests and dreams. Together we have been making a lot of great memories in here. 

In addition, Goettingen is a really student-friendly city. I was really surprised at how young the city is, regardless of how much I was told before about the quietness  in Germany. It is not the case with Goettingen.
