I studied Psychology at a Bachelor´s degree level. I would recommend studying at RUB because even though the campus consists of rather old buildings, the quality of the lectures totally makes up for it. The professors who taught in my faculty were nice and always had an open door policy, you could always go to them if you had any questions. The cafeteria is good, it offers good meals at an affordable price. If you don´t feel like eating there, you can go to the small shops that are on campus, as well. The uni also has a modern library that offers study spaces to students, as well as books on every subject. I especially liked the location. Bochum is a vibrant student city! Not far from campus, you can find restaurants, bars, pubs and nightclubs, but also historic buildings and theatres and football stadiums.
I would definitely recommend this University to everybody who would like to make a lot of friends or would like to learn something new! You get a lot of possibilities to develop new skills. This University has made it possible for me to learn new languages, as it is a non-obligatory part of the education.
My professors were very welcoming and they helped me a lot during my studies. The seminars are really well structured and if you still have something unclear you can simply go to your professor who will make everything in order to make everything clear for you 🙂
The location is also great! It is a small university town. All the university building are located next to each other. There are a lot of shops near the University. If you want to go to the city just take a metro and you will be in the centre of Bochum within 10 minutes 🙂
What I especially liked about the university was its Botanical Garden! It is simply awesome!
I think Ruhr University is one of the best Universities I’ve ever seen!
