Personal recommendation
Its a very open and social university, but the classes you receive are still quite good. If you notice they are too easy, you can easily upgrade to a more advanced class. The language classes are quite low in standard, maybe thats because in the Netherlands people start talking foreign languages much earlier

Make sure you get a railway discount card if you intent to travel from and to the airport in London to fly with ryanair. Also look for flights quite a time in advance as they are a lot cheapier. With ryanair you are able to fly very cheaply to west-europe. (50 euro average return-ticket price)

Personal spending habits
A mobile Sim Card is very cheap in England compared with France (I recomend Virgin mobile). And wanted to enjoy so I went out and travelled a lot. But at the end I spent less than in France cause in France I have no grant while in the UK I had the erasmus grant.

Personal comments
It's hard to open a bank account when you stay only one semester. Tell the bank that you stay one year. Then it's very easy to find a job in Cambridge. You can work flexible for a work agency such as Blue Arrow or Berkley Scott. Various colleges of the University of Cambridge are constantly looking for catering staff, mainly waiters. Introduce yourself in many colleges and ask them if they need staff.

Personal comments
Learniong English in Britain is easy. Ony problem as a foreigner: courses are often with other foreigners and one has to carefully make sure that there is no lack of communication with native speakers. Participating in any kind of sports solves that problem rather quickly though. Main languages spoken in the business school are besides English: German (lots!!!) and French. Sometimes majority in a class of foreign origin, which is not so good (specially when they are all from the same country)

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I lived in a shared house with other foreign students and I really got on well with them(and we kept in touch). I enjoyed this life in community so I think this is the best accomodation option to meet people and make real friends.

The standard of APU shared houses is quite low but the rent is cheap (around ú200 per month) compared with private housing.Moreover the APU accomodation office is always available to sort out technical problems in the house.

Course recommendations
Do International marketing, very interesting. If you have time you can do many language courses, I would recommend them because there are many international students and you can practice outside University. Avoid Small business management-useless

SU should organise welcome parties for Erasmus students or other parties for foreigners. They don't do too much. Parties are mostly organised by students privately.
