It is easy to get a job teaching English if you so choose and the University was very good in offering information on these types of jobs. Bar work is also a possibility but the hours are very long. Read Review

Dubliners was a great place to have a drink and they made a special effort to create events that allowed the Erasmus kids, the US students, and the locals. Getxo was a great city to escape to by metro. It had the best cafe's and fantastic window shopping.

I coped pretty well.

It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: Spanish
Was learning Spanish a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Spanish
How much did you improve your Spanish?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
The year abroad was the major factor in my language learning which has 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 is what has made me fluent. Over the year communication became easier and I felt more and more confident as time went by.

Personal recommendation:
It is a great place to improve your spanish, a highly regarded academic institution. Excellent way to investigate another culture because you can meet so many people and experience life in parallel to your own university in at home. Teaching and course content is of high standard although a few improvements could be made. Options for courses are varied and interesting. There is the opportunity to get involved in clubs and activities within the university as well.



FINAL COMMENTS

Don't put so much emphasis on study that it stops you from getting out there. Mixing with local people and exploring your surrounding is also very important. Take a few trips out during the time that you have, I went to Madrid, Salamanca and Barcelona and loved all three places. I had a great time and would definitely go back! I will say that you have to be aware of pickpockets there but don’t let that spoil it. Sort out a doctor as soon as possible. You never know what can happen and getting to see someone when something does can involve a lot of waiting, i.e. days. Other than that, go for it! Enjoy yourselves and be safe!
