I have just started to sudy there, but I like the university very much. I see, that our university tries to do the the best to provide good conditions to students. Good professors and cearing stuff, student life, great nature of Siegen and so on. I am happy with choice. It is only hard to find a job here, but I hope to solve this problem now.

The city is small so there are not so many options to explore. Campus is kind of distant from the city center and as an international transport option is bus only. There are no late night busses so nightlife is not much of a thing.
