KDavid (Mechanical Engineering) from Mexico:

“I decided to study at RUB because of the facilities at RUB, the courses that are offered and because the Ruhrgebiet seemed to be an interesting area. The classes are really good and there are many spots where you can study well. Bochum is a very nice city and there is a lot to see and to do. My advice for international students would be to really study German before you get here.”
