In October 2017 I started to study International relations at the university of Erfurt. You can only find this programme in very few cities in Germany. What I learned to love about the university right from the beginning is that it is so small, so together with the other students and the professors a nice atmosphere is created. What the university makes also special to me is its international character. We have a lot of students from all over Europe and all over the world (also caused by Willy Brandt School), so you’re not only learning something about international relations but really can experience it!
Erfurt is a beautiful city with some Italian flair (as many friends told me). I can really recommend to study at the university of Erfurt!
