Studying in Potsdam

“The main reasons why I decided to study at the University of Potsdam: 1. Potsdam is a beautiful city and it is close to Berlin. 2. The university is young, but it has a very good reputation, here and abroad. 3. My admission notification came quickly, and I promptly received a room in the student dormitories. This was especially important for me as an international student.” Xiangjin Zhan, Master’s student in "Fremdsprachenlinguistik"
