What I like is the freedom you have as a student. The freedom to structure your courses and create an individual study process. I think sometimes and especially the first exams are too hard. Feels unfair and does not represent a high quality of learning – more a toxic survival of the fittest atmosphere.View more
Studied in WWU Münster in IS. The education is far from a practical field, the courses are too theoretical and far from a real business perspective. Most of the lectures are outdated and boring. Professors and Ph.ds stress mostly about how do you write the exposé, which synonyms do you use but don’t give any clue about how your thesis can be applied in the real world. So, be prepared for constant iterations of changing your master thesis with different wording. If you want to finish your studies in 2 years, prepare yourself for studying only. In my humble opinion, the university is over ranked and it’s too conservative. Won’t recommend to internationals or germans with head on their shoulders.
Also, if you want to get your degree, prepare to wait for almost 2 months. The university is so “progressive”, that they will provide you a piece of paper within 2 months, not earlier (already advise them to use docusign or similar software, but they are too lazy and lame)….
If you want to get a student wohnheim room – prepare to spend a lot of time in “Studierendenwerk”, where they don’t want to give good apartments/rooms in the first meet. They even won’t speak English with you.View more
I think WWU is one of the best universities I know of. The organization is great, people from the administration answer questions and emails friendly and quickly. I think their BWL program is great and you have a solid options to choose when to write exams, so you can divide the load. I love the atmosphere and the main building is marvelous.View more
I have only been here for about a month and studying cultural poetics, but so far everything is great, the university as well as the old town is breathtaking to say the least and the professors are nice and competent as well. I’m a stay-indoor kind of person and haven’t been to many activities yet, but I can tell there are plenty of them based on the posters and stickers 🙂 Münster ist my dream university the second I laid eyes on it and I don’t regret it one bit!View more
