In Spain travelling by bus is much quicker and cheaper then by train. So, use buses as much as you can, you won't regret. Try to meet as many local people as possible -- this is the only way to get into a foreign culture and understand and appreciate it. Try not to be enclosed in the international students' partying. It might be amazing, but it is also somewhat fake. Read Review

Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? It was very handy to get in to university every day, close to shops and local services. Also there was a friendly atmosphere and opportunity to make friends from all over the world.
Personal comments:
The accomodation was overall very good, it was clean, spacious and had various facilities such as free internet, tennis, basketball and football courts/pitch. It was fairly priced and everyone got along well together.

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 interact with the local community without much university involvement
Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Activities, Nightlife: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Irish Stones pub is a favourite with Erasmus as a meeting point at the beginning of a night out. Cafe Boulevard was one of my favourites, Gallerias de Urquijo for nightlife was brilliant fun. Also Congreso, Conjunto clubs and Casco Viejo bars are great. Events; carnival around feb/march in Bilbao and surrounding area, San Fermin and the running of the bulls in summer, not to be missed. St Patrick's day was celebrated to the full in the Irish Stones. Also take a trip to the Guggenheim museum, plenty of interesting things to see there!

Overall
Language of instruction: Spanish
Was learning Spanish a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
How much did you improve your Spanish?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after:
Personal comments:
The year abroad was the major factor in my language learning which at that point had lasted 9 years in total. The experience of going to a university where you could not avoid listening to 4 or 5 hours of spanish every day was invaluable to me and made me fluent. Over the year communication became easier and I felt more and more confident as time went by.

If you come to Bilbao, come at the beginning of September and look for your own place... The agency that Deusto offers you is ok, but it´s very easy to find something on your own.. For example through this website...

FINAL COMMENTS

Even though this report might not sound all to positive.. Just do it, you learn the same or maybe even more from negative experiences. I´m not saying that overall it was a negative experience, but some thing just weren´t as good as I expected. There´s always differences with your home uni.
