Personal comments
In this part of spain, there is also another language "el Vasco", but most of the people spoke th enormal spanish and I learned a lot. There are still peolple here with whom I'm speaking english, but the spanish is getting better and better. You have tot have a bit of discipline, though, to look up words in your diccionary when you don't know them etc.

Personal spending habits
Telephone: I call my parents and boyfriend once a week, that costs a lot. Accomodation: In the Netherlands I lived with my parents. Nightlife: You go out more than in the netherlands, because there you meet all the other international students. Travel: I, personally wanted to see something of Spain, like Madrid and Andalucia.

Personal comments
Especially, if you want to see something of the country, you should save something before you go. It is not nice when you constantly have to pay attention for your money. A good insurrance is also very important.

Course recommendations
On Deusto, you ealways have to work in groups with only one international student, this is very easy, but not al the students are very helpfull. The courses are prety interesting, but when teachers don't speak very clearly, it is kind of difficult to follow. In general most of the subjects are good to understand.

Personal comments
Teachers have to learn to speak a little bit more clarer and less boring. There have to be a constant change betwen practice and theory, that "keeps the subjects alive"

I wish I had known...
At this university, the inscription for teh sbjects for foreign students happens on the way: Who first comes, who first have the entree, because there are only 25 seets in a classroom for th einternational students. This means, if you want a very popular subject: be there on time!

In SS there is an old part where every student goes out. Every wednesday, we all go to a place called TasTas, because then it is ERASMUSnight. On thursday the same in El Cine. In this place you can danse a bit more. After this, you can go to many other discos. An event not to miss is definitely carnaval in february!

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Because here, you have your own appartment and that is better for ypur own development. In the Netherlands, I still lived with my parents. In San Sebastian evrything and evrybody is very close to each other so you don't need to go on a campus.
