How is the academic life at this university/college? Always pushed to learn more while in campus. What are the students like? There are many resources that say most Aachen students are excellent in their academic performance, which is not surprising since Aachen has a worldly-renowned reputation. Indonesian people entering Aachen should be proud, because ex-Indonesian president B.J. Habibie is one of Aachen's alumnuses. Habibie is a genius who was succeeded in making an airplane. From what I previously told, we can see that we shouldn't put in doubt on Aachen's alumnuses' outcome. This is further supported by a high-quality academic standing and internationally-recognized lecturers, that it's not surprising for most Aachen's alumnuses to work in outstanding working environments. What do students do when not studying? Tell us about the social and sports life. My female cousin, aside from studying Chemical Engineering at Aachen, she was also a member of Kyokushinkai club. Just for your information, Kyokushinkai is an alternative name for Karate. This Kyokushinkai is one of Martial Arts' branches that aims for one's ability to survive from any forms of disturbance, including those that come from street thugs especially at night. Just from hearing her stories, I can conclude that Kyokushinkai club in Aachen really put emphasis on its' practice. According to my female cousin, there were also routine weekly meetings among the members. Go to the shopping centers and bars around campus. Bars around campus, like any other German's bars, sell expensive foods and drinks. Most people (including students) will usually opt for buying neccessities in supermarket or local market, since those places often sell cheaper products. What is your overall opinion about this university/college? Aachen is one of German universities that you should consider, if you want to take any Engineering-related subjects. While it's true that Aachen is not the number 1 Engineering-related university in Germany, Aachen's alumnuses' work outcomes are incredibly outstanding and students will also be able to practice on what they've just learned. Practice-based opportunities will be given more as you study further. Additionally, Aachen offers tuition free. However, you should bear in mind that studying in Aachen is quite challenging, especially in the first semesters, and living costs are expensive as well, therefore, you will need a sufficient amount of time and money management skills.
