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! 🙂
I’m studying MSc Microbiology at the University of Oldenburg. The course offers many interesting modules and a lot of opportunities to gain practical experience. Some aspects of the course are badly organised, e.g. courses being overbooked, not having enough resources or support etc. Overall a good course/university for practical lab experience.
I really appreciate the possibility of going to France and I like the year that I'm staying here. I would appreciate if both universities, in Germany and in France, would give more information overall about the studies and the contents of the lessons.
