Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I would go for the same option again just with different people and with more space. I arrived quite late in Bilbao and there was a good choice of accomodation to choose from
Personal comments:
The apartment I took was the best of the ones I had looked at, however it was very small for the price I was paying. As well as that there was no central heating thus it was freezing during the winter months

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:
try seminars, they are the most interesting subjects, very praxis-oriented and not too hard even 4 erasmus. forget about most beginner and intermediate courses, they are very theoretical and teachers tend to be crap.

It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.

Personal comments:
enjoy life on- and off-campus. teachers can be enoying because they see erasmus as lazy people. their prejudices lead to bad results even though one works hard. so be prepared!

FINAL COMMENTS

check out: Guggenheim Bilbao. All the beaches. Pamplona, 7.7 - fiestas and the famous bull-run. get a calender with all the fiestas, in general. get yourself a local girl/boyfriend (if you have a relationship, forget about this point). dont try to understand the spaniards - just accept their way of living. bring your car, but never let anything in it - unless you got a good insurance. have fun! this will be the only time in your life you will have this kind of experience - things will never be the same again....
