All experience here is so valuable!
Trinh Pham Le Viet rated 4 out of 5 stars

With me, one of the best of Schmalkalden Applied Science University is the wide connection to many big universities around the worlds from inside Europe to Asia, Australia to US or even Canada. I made my exchange to Spain in 1 year and it was super amazing! Besides that, dual degree program is very great when students can study and get two master certifcates simultaneously...
