Finland might not be a number one choice of studying, but nobody would regret it when going there. I loved it, you'll love it! Take all the chances you've got to travel to e.g. Stockholm, Russia, Estonia and Lapland! Read Review

Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Although there wasn't that much space in there I had the time of my life with my flatmates.
Personal comments:
I had to start paying the rent even before I moved into my appartment, costing me an additional 100 euros while not using it!

Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Activities: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Molly Malone's is the best place to meet foreign people. Studio 51 is the best club, and if you manage to find all the right happy hours it's not so expensive after all. The best parties are however given in the student's appartments.
