Why did you choose to go to Stuttgart, Germany?

Well, I wanted to study in Bremen actually, but university there changed its agreement, so I had to decide between some cities like Mainz, Mannheim and I didn't know exactly why I chose Stuttgart, I guess it was a decision made at that point of time.

How long is the scholarship? How much money do you receive to help you with living costs?

My scholarship is for 6 months, 400 euro monthly.

Would you recommend the city and the University of Stuttgart to other students?

I hear from a lot of people that the University of Stuttgart is really good in engineerings and such, and yes, I would recommend it. Of course you should know that it is not a cheap city and it is hard to find accomodation.


What is the food like?

Schokolade! and Schwabish food is OK too. You can always eat döner, pizza, hamburger, etc. You can find chinese, thai or mexican food. I usually prefer buying ingredients and cooking myself.

Did it cost you to find your accommodation in Stuttgart?

The University of Stuttgart itself doesn't help you find accomodation. But Studierendenwerk Stuttgart has dormitories. Other than that, you can search on your own. Of course, it costs money, time, etc.

How much does it cost to live in Stuttgart?

I guess it depends on how you live but besides the rent, a student can survive in Stuttgart with 200 euros per month, I think.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

Yes, there are different levels of German courses that students can take part in, and also, there is a tandem programme in which students learn another language with (from) each other.

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Stuttgart from your city?


Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Stuttgart?

There are all kinds of cultural events in Stuttgart.

Is there any other advice that you could give to students going to Stuttgart in the future?

Know that here, you will find a very mechanic civilization, and don't forget your umbrella when you go out.
