You can't avoid to go abroad that is such a great experience. You will have learn a lot of things on other people and (the most surprising!) on yourself.

Please listen carefully to the instructions at the beginning and everything will be allright. Don't do what you would not permit you to do in your own country.

In summer Monterrey is very very hot. If your going to travel all over Mexico contact in the campus people from the part you are going to, they will give you the best advise. When travelling do not wear ostentatious things. Taste "margaritas" and a beer called "Sol".

That the school was at 40 minutes by bus from town. (Campus Mazatlan) No big deal, but always good to know.

Good teaching, good service, not much to say... But as I said earlier, organizing events with local people and foreigners should make better contacts, especially when someone wants to learn a language.

Final comments
I know that the TEC is a highly reputated school, but I found that it was a big party trip for most people on this exchange. Of course, I should have known better,the campus was in Mazatlan, close to the beach. The atmosphere on a small recluded campus can be fun, but it is important to realize that the culture of the host country might be missing... Foreigners are gatthering together and make groups which is fun, but it depends what you're looking for. Travelling in Mexico is cheap and easy, lots of things to see and do. As the other exchanges I made with the UNAM and the UCR, find a place to stay is not that hard, it's cheaper and you'll meet other kind of people.

Course recommendations
This universtity is said as one of the best university in Latin America. It is famous of plenty of homeworks, which as a student studying for a double degree program, I tasted the bitter part. And moreover, the courses could be more diverse.

Personal comments
I have been here almost 10 months. I have done almost 64 exams, (excluding some suprising exams), around 20 presentations,more than one hunderd homeworks. I do understand that homework and exam are the key for students to solid their new-learned knowedge. However, maybe it would be better that students got time to concentrate on mastering less topic than just doing homeworks for finishing homeworks, doing exmas just for passing exams. Nevertheless, I have to admite that I study rather more courses than that of average students.

Housing
Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
For the first time in the country this is better to live with a family as it is able to give you some information regarding culture and support in critical moments. My housing was perfect as I was leaving in a family house but separatly with others foreigners.So it maintained my independence but I could ask for help sometimes. That was a good balance. If I go back I would choose to live in a apartment but with roomates.

Personal comments
The conditions of payment are constraining as you have to pay cash on the first days or before arriving. This type of housing requiere a lot of forms and other documents.That is a bad to pass and then you are free. Caution there is a contract so you can't leave the housing program when you want to!

Personal recommendation
It is importante to know that here exists a different way of teaching and learning, more like in school. The people here at the campus are rich and some of them do not see the problems that occurre outside of the campus. It is not possible to compare studying here with getting to know a lot of the mexican culture.

Final comments
It is no easy to live in Mexico-City, a lot of contermination y too much people-. If you want to study here you need 900 US-dollars for one month, trips not included. It is recomendable to live in a zone with private secuurity because there are a lot of robberies here( two weeks ago they stole my car). Don´t forget that Mexico-City is dangerous!
