Overall
I wish I had known...
Dont worry, Berlin is so cheap any administrative nightmares (ie accomodation) can be sorted out on arrival. Get Angemeldet immediatly, you are not a human without an "Anmeldebescheinigung". It is a prerequisite for: bank account, registration at uni, telephone and most other essentials.

Anything.Doing an experience as Erasmus is just a wonderfull experience through which you can discover yourself. Before going you had to know only that a new experience can only contribute to your growth.

Travel in Eastern Europe as much as possible, its cheaper and there are lots of cool things to see. Have an open mind in everything you do. Go outside your comfort zone that's a big part of studying abroad

I wish I'd known how fantastic and therefore dangerous to the credit card Berlin is! It was very easy to overspend massively....

Perhaps this wouldn't be the place to come to lift your grade because there's so much going on on every other level that focusing on your studies may prove tricky. I wasn't there in winter but I hear they have serious winters and alot of the cheaper accomodation will have coal ovens to heat them - very beautiful and decorative, but a real nightmare to keep stoked, especially if you live on the top floor ( a lot of carrying)

Yes! The campus of the HU moved that year to an other location south-east of Berlin. That was new for me and it was not mentioned in the catalogue for internationla students.
