Where are you from and which/where is your Home University?

I am from Murcia (close and bigger than Alicante...), University of Murcia.

Are you an international exchange-student or an international degree-students and how long have you been at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer?

I was Erasmus student and now I´m doing one practicum. So at the end, I´ll be here one year and a half.

What is your field of study and in which semester are you in?

I am studying Management and Business Administration and last semester was my last one.

Why did you choose the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer for your study period?

Because it has English program and it´s a university with people from other parts of Germany and with so much people from other countries. And because is not far away to Hamburg, Bremen, ... with the semesterticket. And important! There are so much opportunities for practicum.

What do you especially like about the University of Applied Siences Emden/Leer?

For sure, the people are so nice. You will know new international and German people who will help you so much. And you will do a lot of parties with them... In other hand, all staff always help and support us a lot in the Hochschule.

Do you have any suggestions or recommendations for prospective international students?

First of all. Everaone who would like to come to Emden, should do the intensive German course, because it´s so good. You don´t worry if you don´t know German, because I arrived without German and a little bit of english. And everybody will help you and you will learn a lot.

Do you have any hints about living in Emden/East Freesia?

About living in Emden: You have to be fast. Talk with International Office and if vacancies are gone, you can check in the next web: And if at the end you don´t find, "kein problem". I arrived alone without house and in two days, I was living with other erasmus students until I founded my actual house.

I only know one thing: You will live your best experience of your life.
