WORKLOAD

  • Philipp (Fall 2021): CEMS Classes are fine, everything else really varies depending on the class. You can choose things that are easy enough and just enjoy your time! But you can also really dig in and learn something.

HOUSing

  • Philipp (Fall 2021): Not cheap! Expect to pay at least 400€, but most don't pay more than 600€. Find something not too far from the Uni campus!
