Erasmus experience in Hamburg, Germany by Louis

Why did you choose to go to Hamburg, Germany?

I wanted to go to Germany because I love the German culture and this country. Hamburg is an important city that draws me in.

How long does your trip last? How much financial aide do you get?

My stay lasts 4 months. I don't receive any financial help apart from the money from my parents because I'm not on an entirely ERASMUS scheme.
