Student Reviews

Great Alma Mater, trying times ahead for Social Sciences.

My time at HHU Düsseldorf made me into a young aspiring scientist. While I thoroughly enjoyed my studies there, I'm disappointed in the administrations decision to stop the Information Science programme. I feel that the extreme focus on STEM-oriented courses will be detrimental to the university and society in the long-run.

I really enjoyed the mixture of research areas by combining traditional English and American Studies with modern Communication and Media Studies, which is just one out of many possible combinations of courses Heinrich-Heine-University has to offer. I was also lucky I could attend various interesting lectures taught by professional staff.
