Ian van Giesen
„If you are looking to improve your German and engage with extremely competent engineering professors in a university with a long history of accomplishments, then KIT is the best choice!”
Jeremias Glinka
“I like the excellent interior design of the buildings at KIT. One of my best memories is the international orientation week at the beginning of the semester.”
Katherine Riedling
“Karlsruhe itself offers both character and beauty, as well as a way to enjoy the vibrance of city life without feeling stifled by the hustle and bustle of other cities.”
Linghui He
“The most significant difference is the life in the student dormitories. In China, we live in larger dormitories, but rarely know each other except our own roommates. However, in KIT dormitories it feels like a big family.”
Sofia Silva
“KIT was my first option, because KIT is one of the most renowned universities in Germany. The KIT’s excellent infrastructure and quality of teaching convinced me to complete my exchange semester here.”
