Personal assessment

KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.

Cleanliness

Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? When sharing an apartment with locals, you have the opportunity to get to know the culture and local customs. At the same time you are not too dependent on your fellow tenants.
Personal comments:
Housing is not arranged by the university, although they do provide tips on where and how to find accomodation.

Describe host city: Student life dominates the city
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Activities: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Erasmus students mainly meet at the clubs Tierra, El 66 and Casa del Loco; all of which have a pretty good mixture of (European) music. Other areas for going out include La Zona (behind the Corte Inglés) and El Rollo. Best Café: Café Zen (Calle Alfonso) and Café Antiguo (Gran Via)

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:
DO NOT STUDY "cursos trimestral/annual de lengua y cultura para extranjeros" language courses at The Departmento de Espanol como lengua extranjera, edificio interfacultades, Universidad de Zaragoza. In short: really bad teaching, no social side, expensive, little improvement to spanish. It is a terrible waste of your money and time. Some teachers have no experience with little training and lack basic personal skills expected of a teacher, classes are poor in most ways. The classes are basic and teacher preparation consists of photocopying textbooks, no actual spanish is used (spanish is always especially written for foreigners) even though we were "upper intermediate" level, there was little real conversation (following models in the textbooks like pre GCSE) and less culture than previous courses in the UK! The courses seem good value - mine was 260 hours for 680 euro which is 9 - 2.15 daily with 30 mins break - but every teacher arrives very late, you take extra breaks and finish the class early so you end up with 3 hours of poor language classes a day. They are able to continue to do this because they advertise heavily. Although the university is public, the spanish government privatised some parts of universities - so these courses are private. Teachers are bad because they are paid less than government run language schools so better/qualified teachers look to teach in reputable institutions, and earn more money. If you need more reason to not do this course, there are no social activities whatsoever to welcome students or encourage mixing. Most students outside classes had not met each other even by the end of the 3 months. The excursions they advertised were 2 days in a row to 2 places about 6 weeks into the course. I reccommend the escuela oficial de idiomas no 1. Although it's only 2 hours a week you will study the same grammar at the same pace as your level in the university school. The teachers are very professional and they are paid by the government so the quality of teaching is very high.

The cost of living in Spain is in general cheaper. I stayed centrally and therefore managed to save money on travelling expenses.
Food, Travel, Nightlife, Overall, Telephone, Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
Try and find a flat with a phone in it or organise a mobile phone in the country, phone boxes do not except incoming calls and using a British mobile abroad would cost a bomb.

FINAL COMMENTS

I travelled all over spain whilst studying in Zaragoza. By bus you are about 3 hours from Barcelona and Madrid, from where you can easily access the whole of Spain. Iberia did deals for 10,000 ptas about €60 to travel anywhere in Spain if you are under 26. Barcelona is a must and so is the south of Spain.
