    The campus in Berlin doesn't offer international students accommodation so it can be a bit challenging. Also because of COVID-19 situation this year, we don't have any social events. Nevertheless, since we have a smaller size of the classes, we were luckily allowed to have face-to-face class at the beginning of the semester, thus had a better quality of learning.

    Hard to say since lectures have been almost exclusively online. I don't know any other students except the ones in my program even though I've been there for a year. There were two vending machines next to my classroom on the EG and they took them away middle of last semester, which we were disappointed by.

    The ISM campus Berlin is rather small, but the facilities are new and clean. We have everything we need so the size of the building doesn't really matter. We have a nice terrace area where students can meet and relax after studies.
    Communication with ISM lecturers and staff is smooth, mainly via email because of the pandemic and they have managed this quite well.
    As for transportation, the ISM is located in a great neighbourhood surrounded by many restaurants, stores, etc. which are handy!
