The studies consisted mainly from the professor´s teaching and lecturing and I would have preferred more projects, group works or practical examples.

Personal recommendation
The city and also the university are not too big so you can get fast a good overview. You can have many various courses at the university and normally there is no problems with getting to the courses. In addition, the university arranges very good German courses for foreigners. At the university you have also plenty of possibilities for sports, hobbies and parties.

Final comments
From Siegen it is relatively short to Köln, Frankfurt and Koblenz. The way to other bigger German towns is also not impossible. I also used the possibility for interrailing, because from Germany it is much faster to go to Southern Europe than from Finland.. And if you want to meet lots of other exchange students in Siegen, you should live in Buerbach.

The university had good parties every 2-3 weeks. You should not miss the university summer party. The new movie place is also worth visiting, it has as well nice bars and cafes. Other nice bars/cafes: Kutscherhaus, Muckefuk, Flocke, Orlando

Personal comments
The campus where I was living, was the cheapest one and there were mainly exchange students and other foreigners. I know there would have been nicer places to live, but on the other hand it was propably the best place to get to become acquainted with so many other students.
