Alina Lawrenz, German, current Bachelor in Communication and Entertainment
IUM’s international student body helped me connect with students from different personal as well as cultural backgrounds. It is highly interesting to work within an international group since everyone will have a different point of view which makes the group work motivating and fun - the results are exceptionally remarkable.
The small class size make it possible to understand the subjects clearly. Another advantage of being part of the IUM student body is definitely the worldwide agreements.
