Course recommendations
Don't be shy!!! You can choose what ever you want! Don't let the woman in charge tell you it wouldn't be possible! In the moment you don't get along with a prof choose somethingelse. Otherwise you just waste your time! There is so much to learn and to take home! Even try a little of everything. Not all courses have to be completed to give you new impulses

There are so man little things of daily life that can be so time consumeing when having to find out on your own. The list would be too long, but with a little help from students who have been there before ... everything is manageable

Personal recommendation
Don't take the woman who is in charge of the exchange program too serious, because she does that perfectly on her own;-) There is lots to experience and to expend the mind. But takes a lot of research and self-motivation
