Celtica - Irish bar live music down stairs disco upstairs. Cheap drink and lots of fun. Corbeau - Local bar 1 litre glasses "chavilier" disco music. Big bar with lots of people dancing on all the tables, really good fun. Fuse - Big nightclub Often used for university parties mixture of music. Often the European commission has parties for different nationalities e.g Spanish parties, British, Scandanavian. Often with themes. Usually cos a bit more 500-800 francs but well worth going to. Karaoke bar - near the bourse. Simply for thoise who love to sing there hearts out, nice atmosphere, some of the old pro's do their bit but don't let them put you off. Songs in English, French and Italian. O'Reillys bar & The James Joyce both Irish bars have sky and show most football matches. More games shown at O'reilly's but the James Joyce is cheaper and quieter. Wild Geese - Irish bar where all the European commission stagièrs hang out good atmosphere on a Friday and Saturday, a bit crowded and also a bit expensive.

From academic point of wiev it would probably have been better to stay at home cause the most of the courses i needed were not avaible.However it has been great as human and social experience ,especially to get in touch with so many other students from allo ver the world. I wish i can come back as soon as possible...

Course recommendations
There is one courses which i didnt like at all, like Dynamic Systems and Modelling. The teacher didnt explain anything and we are taking this for the first time. For the first time i see that maths are tought like that and that the exam will be oral suprised me even more. We have to talk about one chapter for 15 minutes. Its ridiculous. Another course was International Accounting where we had to write a paper, which was very difficult. The teacher treated us like analysists. We are still students. He told us we can email him anytime if we have questions but he never answers. But all the other courses were very nice. I was amazed about the English, the teachers speak, a very clear and good english.

Housing
Type of housing: A room exchange
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I'd like to live in an apartment because in a student room that I have lived I needed to share showers and kitchen with 15 people so I'd rather prefer to have less people or either my own shower and kitchen with much more space and less costly.

Personal comments
The room was not provided by the university but they helped me to find one. The provider of housing is a well-known organization in Brussels but the room was dirty and destroyed when I first hired although all the problems were fixed by the organization carefully. However as a first impression it was not an hospital environment to live. I need to mention that the equipe of the organization were always so very interested and hospital.

The good thing is that my country has 2 local languages, Dutch which i speak not at all and French which i speak pretty well. But the problem is that at school is everything in Dutch even the things which are concerned for the Erasmus students are in Dutch. Our coordinator comunicated with us always in English but most of the papers written by the administration was in dutch and we were really struggeling some times because we didnt know if some courses were deleted or replaced or something else. I think this has to be improved, because it must not be expected from Erasmus students to speak Dutch. Everything that is concerned for them should be in English.
