Moving to Schaffhausen as a college student

Hi everyone!

I'm 26 years old and a postgraduate student. Recently I received an offer for a PhD position in Schaffhausen. Would I accept it, I'd have to move there.

On this very helpful forum I've seen a lot of requests on how is life in Schaffhausen, and most answers point out that there is a growing expat community. Though, most of those requests came from people with a family and young children. I'm mainly interested in the student life of Schaffhausen and whether a young student who does not speak german could make himself at home and meet new people. Moreover, as far as I know, Schaffhausen is not a "college city" and this scares me a little about the possibility of meeting people my age and making new friends.

Can anyone that knows Schaffhausen offer some insights?
Thank you very much for your help!!
