Personal recommendation
it´s postgraduate, so prepare for more students than teachers with grey hair, girls with husbands and children. You need to find your own friends or be lucky that there are more exchangestudents...

Final comments
Destinations you have to see in Venezuela: choroní, Merida, moroccoy, la gran sabana, Margerita, puerto la cruz and climb the Avila. This country is soooo beautiful you will forget the Institute and its stuck up students. Lots of possibilities to travel in the weekends since you can select your courses which is great!!!
