Personal comments
The Finnish language is very difficult to learn. However I have tried to learn it but I did not end with good results and mainly because I did not spend enough time in the country. Fortunately the majority of people speak English in Finland, that is the reason why I did not have any problems in my everyday life.

Course recommendations
The majority of the teachers were professionals, and some of them did know how to organise the course in the way that it would have been much more easy to understand. They did not have any plan and they were going from a point to another one with any discussion thread.

I wish I had known...
It concerns the students I was sutdying with, most of them were quiet young and were here mainly to have fun, and not really to study.

Personal recommendation
Maybe to do a test of selection to be sure of the level of education and the motivations of the students before accepting them in, order to have a good team and have better results.

Final comments
Before leaving the home country, it is important to be sure that all the papers are organised and signed and mainly about the financial help. Today I am back home and I still did not receive anything from my home university, and it has been quiet difficult to deal with this kind of problems when I was abroad. When the student is abroad, he must avoid staying with other students from the same country in order to be more open to the new life that he is living.

Personal comments
The place where I was living was a quiet small city; pubs do not have anything special. So I did not really enjoy the nightlife, unless when I was going to biggest towns, and still... But anyway it was nice to compare the nightlife in Finland to the London one for instance. On the other hand, I had many activities to do. My university proposed many sports activities with the students, everytime I had nothing to do, I was going to relax my self in the sporting complex.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
We were eight girls sharing a big flat, and sometimes it has been quiet difficult to agree between us. I would have prefered to share my accommodation with only one or two other girls.

Personal comments
Everything we needed was provided for our every day life in the flat. I can not really complain about it. As I said the only problem was to live with seven other girls. But at the end, I think that it has been a pretty good experience, I mean that I had to learn how to live with people from different culture with different habits.
