Testimonials of master students about HHU

“At HHU I mainly use the library from the extra offers. There is a very large selection of books, which are nicely sorted according to the respective courses of study, so you can quickly find textbooks”.
(Christina Siepe, master study programme Physics)

“Extracurriculars such as canteens and the library have been very useful, yet personally, programs such as “Hochschulsport” or students organized football tournaments are those that have brought the students together the most. This is the place where students of different fields or nationalities meet and connect”. 
(Jonah Book, master study programme Physics)

I rate the quality of the teaching at HHU as very high. It can be felt, that the professors are interested in conveying the content as interesting and understandable as possible. Even if you have any questions, they always try to ensure that everyone understands the content. At the HHU many events are offered where students can try out various medical physic devices themselves. So the students can have a great look into the practical work of a educated medical physicist.
(Luisa Coen, master study programme Physics)

“The community of international students and those involved at the HHU is what makes the international program thrive here. Student Campuses such as Süd Campus keep the international community alive by hosting parties/events or meet ups. Many people put themselves out there to meet the incoming international students and create a welcoming atmosphere. The mix between students coming here for a semester or those studying here full time create friendships like no other, proven year and year again”. 
(Jonah Book, master study programme Physics)
