Good program but limited seats for methodology courses
Good university and friendly atmosphere. But not fairly good teaching, maybe the doctors are expert but mostly not in teaching. The city is wonderful and the people here amazing.
I will start my study in Oldenburg university next week. I am already here for one week and we had our orientation week. People here are so friendly and international office would always help you in dealing with different stuff. The city is so nice the weather much better than south of Germany and you can easily find a dorm for a reasonable price. I am happy to be here! 🙂
