Final comments
Finland might not be a number one choice of studying, but nobody would regret it when going there. I loved it, you'll love it! Take all the chances you've got to travel to e.g. Stockholm, Russia, Estonia and Lapland!

I had to start paying the rent even before I moved into my appartment, costing me an additional 100 euros while not using it!

Personal comments
Molly Malone's is the best place to meet foreign people. Studio 51 is the best club, and if you manage to find all the right happy hours it's not so expensive after all. The best parties are however given in the student's appartments.
