In Muenchen hab ich so schoene Zeit als Programmstudentin verbringt. Als viele auslaendische Studenten nach Muenchen gekommen, um ihre Studium zu machen, konnte ich viele Leute kennenlernen und andere Kultur zu erfahren. Waehrend der Zeit in Muenchen, manchmal war ich einsam, und manchmal war ich gut drauf. Ich glaube ich bin mehr selbstaendig geworden. Falls mir einmal andere Chancen gegeben wuerde, in Muenchen zu leben, moechte ich nach Muenchen zurueckgehen.

The LMU is still quite old-fashioned with faculties that never work together, no ICPS support, loads and loads of bureaucracy. But it's a *real* university. PS: There are a lot more girls than boys here... In the TU (Tech Uni) there are almost no girls at all...

That the international office really did organize accomodations for all EU-students. Would have saved me many sleepless nights...

Go there! The Classics department, where I was, is probably one of the very best there is.

Don't expect too much language training from the introductory course. The course is however brilliant for getting to know other exchange student and the city.

Lower the hierarchy!!! Student and teacher are both human. You make it seem as if teachers are something so much more!!!

Travel as much as you can and enjoy the beautiful location of Munich! More people can share the Bayernticket or the Schönes Wochenende ticket. It comes out very cheep and you can ever go to Salzburg on these tickets.

The best desision I've ever made, was to spend an academic year abroad. I've made new friends, lived in a new culture, learned the language and learned so much of life and about myself. SUPER!

That you have to pay to register for courses (not a lot - about 10-15DM per course) and you also have to pay for the photocopies from the lectures (which cost anything from 5 to 50 DM). This put me off some courses as I didn't think it was worth paying for the lectures.

Nightlife is excellent. The university itself is probably a bit too big and impersonnel and I found it quite hard to get a lot out of lectures. There are probably too many English/Irish/American students there (i.e. I spent a lot of my time with them as it was hard to meet other German students and my German suffered as a result).

When you register for health insurance make sure they give you your health insurance card (they didn't give me one so I had to pay for medical treatment). Go (from British Airways)offer the cheapest flights to Munich from the UK and it takes about 40 mins on the train to reach the city centre. Munich is probably one of the more expensive places to live in Germany (which makes it about the same as the UK so its still not too expensive). There are also a lot of tourist trap bars and shops in the city centre so beware.
