Yhea!!! MANY TROUBLES. My father sent to Westminster Bank 1000 pounds and the bank simply LOST them! I got them back after 2 monthes and I had to go to the bank every 2 days to check what was going on in the computer system of thhe bank. Even when they had the code transfert they were not able to find my money!!!!!!

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.

Personal recommendation
Since the most of students are foreigners, they shold improve the meeting points for Erasmus students and they should organise more UNI parties.

Final comments
Even though it could have been better, I suggest to do an international experience. Troubles as well teach you how to tackle with problems. Be careful with English, they are racist and violent.

Personal comments
The organisation is really bad. I was supposed to have a room booked for me in the campus, and I phoned to England to be sure the reserve was done. They told me everything was fine but when I arrived the campus' rooms were full and They didn't give me any help to find a place to sleep. My language level was bad at the beginning and I had a lot of trouble.
