Studying in a foreign country is undoubtedly an extraordinary experience, which can be challenging but also extremely rewarding. Thanks to the support of the International Office, I felt well taken care of. I loved studying in the charming town of Augsburg, as it offers all the advantages of a big city, while providing a more personal aspect that only a smaller town can offer. My two semesters in Augsburg are memories I'll never forget, as are all the wonderful relationships I forged.

I had the most memorable time of my life. The WeltWelt program has given me an opportunity to see the wider world, has enriched my knowledge and I improved my German. I met people from all over the world and it was very interesting to exchange ideas with people from different cultures! As a first-time visitor to Europe, I had many difficulties at first, but the International Office helped me a lot to get used to everything and enjoy my life here. I will never forget the happy times in Augsburg!

People always say that studying abroad is an unforgettable experience. Although it is cliche, I could not agree more. My time at the University of Augsburg has created some of my fondest memories. I’ve met amazing friends, traveled to unique places, and took courses that interested me. I will be devastated when I have to say goodbye to this beautiful city, the University, and the people, but I am already looking for ways to get back in the future!

My experience in Augsburg was, without any doubts, beyond all my expectations. Even though it is not a very big city, there is always a lot to do here. I learned a lot and made many friends from different parts of the world. It was a mix of cultures clashing and a world of new experiences that made me fall in love with the city and the country. I can say that now I’m a new person and I will always remember with great affection everything I lived here and I hope to return soon. Thank you, Augsburg!

If my life were a book, this year of exchange in Augsburg is the chapter I would read and reminisce again and again. I’m the protagonist lucky enough to be staying in a beautiful city, always close to nature, and surrounded by lovely people. Days were like adventures and full of wonder. The Weltweit office was a great support too, especially during the pandemic. Augsburg has brought a lot of wonderful friends and amazing experiences to my life, and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

The semester in Augsburg was the best time of my life. I was able to fully enjoy school, the city life and the beautiful nature. There were various school programs to meet many other exchange students. Even during the lockdown, I was able to communicate with students through 1:1 programs. It was easy to settle down in Augsburg as the WeltWeit office always did their best to help me in all processes. I will keep my precious memories from Augsburg forever thanks to the WeltWeit program.

Even though there were restrictions during the pandemic lockdown, I still had the greatest time as an exchange student at the University of Augsburg. I got to know German culture through German language courses. The WeltWeit team also offered some outside activities during lockdown, which gave me some fantastic experiences. Whenever I had problems, the WeltWeit team was there and helped me solve the problem as soon as possible. The WeltWeit team is the best!

I loved my time at Uni Augsburg. This university had a great spirit I could always feel when I was walking around the campus. Whenever a problem arose, the Weltweit Office was there to help me. And they offered many opportunities to know about Germany and make new friends. I was able to improve my German skills so much. I thank everyone who has made my time in Augsburg so special - from my friends to the very helpful Weltweit staff.

I will never regret choosing Augsburg University to do exchange. The life as a student here was great. The city offers a lot activities as well as nature nearby and the most important thing is the people I've met. Doing exchange at Augsburg University is everything I expected and more.

Looking back on my year abroad, I can confidently say that my exchange stay in Augsburg was a life-changing experience. I loved the community environment of the city, which allowed me to practice my German and fully immerse myself in the German culture. In involving myself with the Weltweit program, I was able to learn so much about Germany while meeting new friends from all around the world. I was very thankful to have had the support of the Weltweit scholarship to assist me.

I never expected that I could love Augsburg that much. Spending one year here was the best decision I have ever made. For studying, uni offers a wide rage of German courses and I also had the chance to get to know more about different fields of American law. All the memories here with friends are irreplaceable and Augsburg will always stay in my heart. And thank you so much, Weltweit Office, you kindly offer so much help and not to mention the awesome excursions and country night events.

I spent six months in Augsburg doing my exchange and I can say it was worth it. The university helped me to strengthen my research tools and German language skills. Both the city and the international relations office of the university are responsible for offering many events and activities for students. It is an awake city! As a student you have many facilities, transportation is free and there are many discounts. In addition, the scholarship was a great help.

I came on exchange to Augsburg with no expectations and I never imagined I would love it here as much as I do! It is a beautiful city with many gems to discover...
