I got the chance to study for one semester at Ansbach University thanks to the Erasmus programme. I loved my time here. The administration was very helpful, the classes were very interesting, and I loved visiting the city and Germany in general. I recommend everyone to come here for their studies.

This experience changed my life completely. Living abroad is something I will never forget.  The university was different from what I was used to, and I loved that. I brought something special back at the end of my Erasmus, memories with my new peers, and a new willingness to experience even more.

I studied media at Ansbach University. Even though the city seemed to be small, I decided to go to Ansbach. Looking back, Ansbach and Germany were exactly the right choice for me. The courses were interesting, and I made a lot of local friends, which in my opinion is one of the main aims of an Erasmus exchange.

It was an amazing experience! One year ago, I could have never imagined that I would be able to talk to Chinese students on a campus in Germany in German. I think this is the real intercultural exchange. Ansbach University offers their students the opportunity to truly integrate into German culture and allows them to fully enjoy their time in Ansbach.
