Universität Lüneburg review by Susan

Review by Susan, Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Santiago de Compostela, Spain
Communication and Information Sciences, Erasmus
HOUSING    
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: A flat in campus buildings
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I would like to live in the center, because there's no much life in the campus, only during university classes
Personal comments:
It was really helpful, because we didn't have to look for a room ourselves. They day I arrived here, I already had a room in a flat. I only had to fill in a form in june, and then the housing department in the international office did all the rest.

I think it was quite goods. Some teachers are really good: they help you, give you books-information. Others not that good, it depends on the teacher.

Language difficulties
Social
KEY:
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: German
Was learning German a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my German
How much did you improve your German?
My level before: Everyday knowledge (shopping, directions, etc.)
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
I think I've learned a lot, not only in the classes, but also every day, with german friends too. The thing is, I know I could have learned more, but it's not so easy to make friends from the host country, all the exchange students tend to be together, and the problem is that, in that case, most of the time the most used language is English, or sometimes our native language.
