This is Marina.

Marina was an exchange student in Spain, Peru and the UK and knows what it feels like to participate in an exchange semester. She will help you find out whether h_da is a good fit for you. Once you're set to come to Darmstadt, she will walk you through the application and enrollment process. She'll also assist you in any other administrative matter that needs to be taken care of prior to coming to Germany.
