@zaraki

Could you please throw some light on accommodation options in Erlangen. Also is it advisable to reside in the neighboring areas viz nurmberg, Forcheim , given that the university is in Erlangen??I mean in terms of distance and accessibility factor.

Some of the folks live in Nuremberg. It's the closest city. Housing is cheap in Nuremberg. But if you choose Nuremberg you will need to travel every day to the university which usually takes an hour depending on where you live in Nuremberg. But since you will take a semester ticket traveling costs will also add up. Ticket costs here.

Erlangen is a very small city, I can cycle from one end to the other in 30 minutes. it's peaceful, scenic, and city is Intra-connected with buses. It's pretty difficult to find accommodation here since there are lot of students and Siemens employees here.

Check Studentenwerk's Wohnungs and also explore this wesite for information related to other stuff.

Ask Mrs. Ursula Berg for help in finding accommodation. Take the first offer you get for you might be lucky to get a second offer. Come here and then look for ones better suited for you.

Since I got few messages related to arrival date and the orientation program. I am posting my answer here. I will later update my first post to include all information. The starting orientation part is nice to attend but not necessary. I myself couldn't attend it last year and it may not be wise to pay 260 euros or something for the language course in September while you pay nothing for language course during the semester. There are also some plans to make language course compulsory, but I am not sure if they will actually do it.

There is no clear deadline for enrollment but its better to arrive at the university during the time of enrollment (I am not talking about the orientation program). I was told last time by the international office that you may also reach Erlangen after the lectures start but you need to work on your own to make up for the classes you missed. And yeah of course keep Christine Mohr in the loop if you are getting late.

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

No idea about Forcheim, but I am guessing it will be probably cheap. The semester ticket won't cover Forcheim. You might consider Fuerth by the way, its pretty cheap.

My advice for the first semester and first time in a foreign country is to stick together and learn city logistics. Also learn to navigate in and around during the semester. Take the first housing option you get. And those who got accommodation in studentenwohnheims, stick to them. That's where most of the city's international crowd is. You will also find most of your classmates in there.

No Idea about the TAF. But I know a guy. Ehesaan, not sure if the spelling is correct. He is from Pakistan.

There's another married woman who is also in the same TAF, Indian but I am not very sure. We hardly have common classes, and hard to catch up.

Hallo zaraki


I have ready your post. It contains all information. Still I have a doubt.

The TAF- COMPUTATIONAL MATERIAL SCIENCE
Does this TAF come under elite network option ?
I couldn't not find details anywhere regarding this.
I have read that not all the TAF are eligible for Elite program


Since I preparing to apply for this winter , I would like to decide between CMS or Fluid dynamics .
That's why I want to clear my doubt.

Thank you for this informative post.

Any CE student can apply for the elite program. In recent years my friends have experienced quite some problems in searching industrial CFD jobs, also the chair LSTM is low on funds right now (this situation could change no one can tell). On the other hand, CMS has good funding at the institute for a PhD currently.

This time (i.e., students who started CE in Winter semester 2015-16) FAU didn't offer admission to the elite program due to funding issues. However, I heard that admissions to the elite program will resume again from this year.

An update about the semester ticket.

Since winter semester 2015-16, students have to pay 107,00 Euro per semester as fee. This includes 42 Euro towards studentenwerk and 65 towards (time restricted) bus ticket. With this bus ticket students can use public transport within VGN area (includes Erlangen, Nuremberg, Bamberg and few suburban regions surrounding these cities) during 19:00-06:00 during weekdays. And without any time restrictions on weekends. You can buy a full bus ticket by spending an additional 199,00 Euro to use public transport without time restrictions.

I suppose any one who lives (within 5-7 km from where he/she needs to be) in Erlangen doesn't really need a full bus ticket. A cycle is good enough.
