Personal comments
Basically nordic countries have a high level of english so it´s quite easy to interact there with all sort of people, i haven´t many problems in that sense. Of course be bale to speak finnish can be quite interesting in order to interact completelu with people, but you can manage there withou problems just speaking english.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Share an apartment with other foreign students it´s basically the best for study, for learning the language and for keeping a certain level of independence.

Helsinki has an important night life. Nice spots are Helsinki Club, SODA, Pravda, Amarillo and Molly Malone Irish bar. Kaivopuisto park it´s a nice place that have to be visited as many other like the harbour, the cathedral....Concerning events.... when you are in a foreign country everything has to be basically followed.
