Personal recommendation
The quality of education is very high, and so are the facilities. Sometimes it is a bit difficult to meet Finnish students, but there are plenty of international students around to help/have fun with.

Personal spending habits
Food is really expensive, we have little store like Kmarket to do our shopping food, in France we have big supermarket so it s less expensive. I take also a sonera phone card to call my friends in Finland and I have also my french line, so it was normal that it has been more expensive. For travels, I think thanks to the student exchange association, I could travel a lot, discover plenty of things in really cheap way !!!

Finland is a good location to visit a lot of countries (Estonia, Russia, Sweden...). Mentality is different. Don't be modest.

Generally we begun night on buildings in juna or in opas, after we were going in Helsinki center : in Molly Mallone's, Fever, The Club. The first party for the integration was the Fresher party, it was really fun ! Also in Helia Polytechnic School, we had had a really good association for foreigners, so with really cheap proce, we have gone to stockholm in cruise, or in Talinn, in Lapland to see the Santa Claus, in Saint Petersburg, it was really really genius to discover all of these region. I remerbered also the last nights with all exchange students : the farewell party, really !
