"For me, to be in an iInternational class is a unique chance. During two semesters, I had the possibility to follow Business courses in the English language, to make friends with students from all parts of the world and to discover their culture. Hochschule Wismar provides a good work environment, the professors are comprehensible, they help you when you don't understand something and your language level into account. In my opinion, a year in Wismar is an unforgettable experience."

"I like the studying in HS Wismar, because it gives me everything that I need. The classes are interesting and different than in my country and I find this good because we can learn and practice a lot of new things. At the same time the university is also a place for meeting friends, enjoying lunch with them and doing other activities together outside the school time. It mixes perfectly the useful studying and the leisure time."

"One of the best things at the University of Wismar is its diversity of cultures and nationalities. Every day, you meet people from the other side of the world or from your neighbour country. It’s so fantastic to mix our story, culture and experiences because it’s our unique chance to do it. In another way, English lectures are a great benefit at the University of Wismar which has highly qualified and listening teachers. Erasmus is also a fun time to party... Wismar is certainly an experience to live!"
