"The campus itself is organised in a way that offers a perfect environment for studies but also for free time. It’s located, in what I think is one of the best parts of the city, near parks to relax in after lectures. There are also libraries dotted around campus equipped with the latest literature. And there are several canteens that offer healthy food at affordable prices."

"Cologne is a multi-faceted city, with loads to do. It’s a very welcoming place – very open towards international guests. Right from the start, I really appreciated the openness of the people of Cologne. If you take part in Cologne’s carnival festivities (which you have to!), you soon get infected by their love of life. The green parks and pretty lakes give the city additional appeal. I often miss Lindenthal, the green district where I used to live.
The WiSo Faculty campus is very international and helps every single student feel at home. I remember the uni ran lots of events for us at the start of our programme, especially for the international students. That sped up the process of getting to know other students and made it easier to settle down in our new home."
