HEAR FROM OUR GLOBAL ALUMNI

"In the middle of nowhere in Germany, I found new home. I am happy I was not afraid of moving to a new country and starting my studies in Ilmenau. We all came from different academic and cultural backgrounds, however, university staff took time to make sure we all would reach the same level of knowledge. The communication studies I did were more focused on the research aspects, I enjoyed every bit of it. Ilmenau has a very close - knit community, many student associations, and I had the pleasure to be part of one. It not only gave me the opportunity to organize events, excursions, and stand on stage in front of 400 people but also gave me the best friends one could ask. TU Ilmenau and all the lovely people there will always hold a special place in my heart." - Kristina
