Why did you choose Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences?

My everyday life was very good. At the start it was very difficult for me because I couldn’t communicate, but little by little that got better. The professors were always so friendly and they helped me so very much.
How did you spend your free time in Magdeburg?
I did a huge amount of sport.

Yes, I had problems at the start with the German language. But I talked to lots of Germans and that helped me to improve quickly.

What tips do you have for future international students at the University?
Talk a lot, ask questions, enjoy everything and try out what Germany has to offer. Ideally meet lots of people, give it everything you’ve got and show what you have learned!
