Type of housing: Residence out of campus
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? To live in the centre is more convenient and also cheaper
Personal comments:
Shared rooms are hard especially when you are away from home and need space but new and modern facilites and always great support from the residence whenever there is a problem. Good security

Language of instruction: Spanish
Was learning Spanish a key decision factor?

My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
I'm not sure what I'm expected to write here. I'm fluent in Spanish and have been for many many years. The only problem I had was that I speak Latin American spanish so at times there were slight difficulties in understanding each other.

Personal recommendation:
great university; close to madrid, nice helpful people. level is ok and if you want to learn spanish you should go here, although lots of erasmus don't realise that; prefer to spend time with other erasmus....



FINAL COMMENTS

if you want to learn spanish, this is very possible here, although 2 semesters are required to get a high level. great city, nice people, good level of education and of course lots of stuff to do. in short: if you feel attracted to spain and spanish stuff, you should come to madrid.
