University in the Alps

Fachhochschule Kufstein Tirol is a very nice university. The School itself is a small one, but the athmosphere is kind and warm. Dealing with issues is easy, as you can contact your international coordinator about anything. The classes are long and you might have school on saturdays, but actually you will have a lot of free days as well. Kufstein area is beautiful with all...

To be active and participate in every possible activity. To be honest i did not go there to study :) If i have to rate it, it was pretty good. As i said people were nice to me and willing to help. Also we had lecturers from real companies. For example one was dealing with logistics with BMW- that very interesting for me.
