Overall good university.
Tips: It’s a research-oriented university. Erlangen is quite an expensive city and finding accommodation is really tough. It gets quite cold in winter. Finding a work or part time job is not that difficult, so if you intend to do part-time job it’s manageable to live with these expenses.

Great research opportunities
Tips: Visa process and course content for which they are applying and the desired course should cover prerequisites of the course. Always check course requirements. Apply to the university as soon as possible if you want admission. Immediately start looking for accommodation once accepted.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): Easy PR process. Minimum 2 years of tax contribution required. After completion of study 18 month work visa can be provided. The salary for post graduate student after completion of course is high. Lower unemployment rate and wide opportunity for professional career.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Not enough Indian origin food options in city. There are 2-3 Indian restaurants which provide all types of Indian food but the price is high. Instead of eating outside, I prefer cooking by myself. Egg is almost in every grocery we buy. So less options for vegans and vegetarians.
