Major: Business - Management and Administration (This Major's Salary over time)
I was a student at Schiller Heidelberg fresh out of High School. I was looking for a University that would offer knowledge of my major, International Business but had received nothing. Little did I know upon acceptance, Schiller is accredited by some useless board (as stated by others before me)that is not recognized by practically any other institution. I have spent an entire year (including summer semester) studying at Schiller for absolutely no reason other than debt.

With FAFSA not recognizing Schiller as an institution and their pitiful excuse of financial aide, Schiller creates an illusion of education backed by outrageous tuition costs.

The faculty is absolutely useless. Also as stated above, cheating is not only tolerated but encouraged.

The Bursar, Herr Hartai, the Director, Herr Leibrecht- you name a position and it is insultingly filled with someone incompetent.

Owners have recently been changed to "business men" who have recently visited Schiller to discuss the changes. The meeting had lasted approximately 1 hour and was interrupted (I kid you not) ever 5-10 minutes by an obnoxious ring tone. Following the ring tone we would be reminded that they had a meeting and flight to catch- both were being delayed due to our questions concerning accreditation, tuition, a completely different course schedule (which does NOT benefit the student, rather enrollment), and concerns surrounding bankruptcy. It's nice to know that the concerns of their customers come second to their schedules.

When asked why Schiller did not appear on any lists of loaning institutions we were told that there had been a mistake and that if we were to approach the Director, Herr Leibrecht, we would be given a list of institutions that DO cater to Schiller students. I did ask Leibrecht and his response?

I do not remember saying such a thing.

Students DO party 24-7. Drugs ARE massively distributed. Costs ARE ridiculous. Accreditation IS bogus. Classes ARE a joke. The staff IS useless.

Schiller International University is a joke. Worse than a joke- a disgrace to educational institutions.

If you attend Schiller, get out. If you even think about attending- say good-bye to your future and THOUSANDS of euros/dollars.

Biggest mistake of my life.

Thanks Schiller!
