Negative sides: First there you will be faced with unprofessional staff. Second, they will never accept their mistakes. Here a lot of racist teachers. The library is very small. There are not any foundations or support for students. Positive sides: Easy to attend, easy to transfer your points from a previous university, live in Germany.
