An Art & Design Student in the Business School

Amama from Pakistan, Summer Semester 2015

My experience at RheinAhrCampus as an exchange student was very interesting. I learnt many things in one semester. During the whole semester there were many activities for international and exchange students, such as an outing in Cologne, and hiking in Bad Honnef. We also had delicious cheesecake as a reward after the hike!

I got to experience Germany and the life in Germany form a different perspective. I had a chance of experiencing German culture and everyday German life. At the beginning of the semester we were briefed on the history of Germany in a short lecture presentation, which intrigued me more about the history and the culture of the country. I visited many beautiful sites and cities in Germany during my stay, including Lübeck, Frankfurt, Oedingen, and Erlangen.

Learning the German language was also a great experience. The German language introductory course organized by the campus for international students turned out to be a great source to learn and communicate with basic German language. It was interesting and an exciting experience to be able to understand and speak the native language.

My experience at RheinAhrCampus as a student was very beneficial. I am from an art and design background, so studying in the business school was an entirely different experience for me. However, the content and structure of courses were very interesting and easy to understand and practice through. The courses that I took were all in English and it was easy to understand and communicate in the classroom.

The method of teaching is very practical and friendly with the priority of putting knowledge into practice rather than learning it through books only. This method made it very easy for a student like me coming from a different education background to understand the basics of business world.

All in all it was a great experience throughout. I got to make new friends from other countries and experienced a different culture and new places and a different lifestyle. I like it so much, in fact, that I am staying for a second semester. I am not looking forward to winter, but I am looking forward to another semester at RheinAhrCampus!
