Choosing CBS to study is by far the best decision I have ever made. The student advisors ( Ms. Lena, Ms. Eva, Mr. Ji-Mann), are really supportive and made the whole applying process much easier and were always there to help, making everything much easier especially during the pandemic. The accommodation team was very helpful in assisting to find the ideal apartment, The university also provides with free transport within the whole North West Fallen making transport very convenient and accessible. The school has many social clubs and interactive sessions helping students find new interests and make new friends as well.

I am currently living in I live, which is an accommodation that CBS partners with. It is in a perfect location. It's a 10-15 minute walk from school, and it's right next to the Straßenbahn which allows you to be in the city in a few minutes. CBS University has access to a library, study rooms and an amazing cafeteria. For the most part, communicating with study advisors is relatively quick and helpful.

It's a very intense university, it has few students and therefore the education is very focused on the needs of each student.
