University is very small. Not a lot of opportunities for part time jobs. Course is not oriented for the job market. On the plus side, education is free and cost of living is very low.
When I first came to Germany it was new for me like culture, people, education system. But I would like to thank my Professor and my team that support me morally or in academics during my Ph. D studies. Professors and teachers are very kind mostly. You will learn a lot when you work with them. I appreciate them
Great University with the best laboratories and equipment.
