    Pros

    The Technical University of Munich has a very good reputation and a wide offer for various activities. The new campus in Garching is located only 25 Minutes from Down Town Munich and the leisure offers in die direct surroundings are increasing

    Cons

    Since the University is so large, people can easily get lost particularly if they do not know anybody in Munich

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your keep on going. I am really proud of my alma mater. The only adivse ist: hire more TAs und offer better food on the campus
