Personal assessment
Cost

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? In Spain it is most common to live in an appartment. I was very satisfied with the whole accommodation. In that way you're also able to live in the centre of town.
Personal comments:
For me it was perfect.

ACADEMIC

European Studies, Erasmus
My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
Think twice before choosing Deusto if your not studying Law or Economics. Iīm sorry to say so, but in the faculty of īfilosofia y letrasī many people were very disappointed with the courses offered. It was hard to find positive comments on that... Deusto is very different to other universities. At least, thatīs what I founfd, in comparison to Amsterdam. Thereīs a lot of rules and regulations that are really hard to understand...



My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
KEY:

Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.

Overall
Personal comments:
pff... If I start to write here... Just a little example.. The library; You can take max. 3 books. Keep them for 8 days and if you want to extend them... you bring them back and wait for a day.. then you go back and pichk em up for another 8 days... If your 1 day late, your penalty is you canīt take any books out for the next 8 days... And you donīt enter inside the library either.. you look up the book you want in a computer, send a message to teh secretary, and she gets the book out of the library...

EXPENSES    
by Janet, University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom
Literature, Erasmus
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
An ERASMUS grant
Other sources of funding:
Family
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
I found that I was a lot richer in Spain than at home! Things were cheaper there but I ate the same amount of food so I spent less. The nightlife was fantastic so I was going out a lot more than at home, and I felt the urge to see different parts of Spain. At home I don't travel. The telephone was cheaper because I made less calls.
Travel, Nightlife: was more expensive than at home.
Overall, Housing: was the same price as at home.
Food, Telephone: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
Same as you would at home, try to have a budget. Use the bus to the airport instead of taxis, use the metro instead of taxis; buy a 10 trip metro ticket instead of 10 singles. Take taxis with friends - good anyway for safety.
