Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? Because it's the best way to get to know the other students and share "a student life" while leaving really close to the school.
Personal comments:
Despite the student residence should need some arrangements in terms of manteinance and modernization, it was pretty good and the price was quite acceptable. The location was perfect in terms of proximity with the school and the sport facilities, and also at only 15 minutes by bus from the city center.

KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Student life dominates the city
Activities, Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Personal comments:
My favourite night clubs were Maxim's, Agora, Metro and Scotsman. Some nice cafes, specially Portofino and Mr.Bean. Don't leave Bergen before the National Day on the 17th of May. It's incredible! The streets are full of people wearing their regional dresses. The Norwegian flag is everywhere and there is also plenty of music and fun in all the city during all the day and night. Bergen is the perfect city for students loving nature. Amazing landscapes at few minutes from the city center (Funicular of Floien), and also incredible trips through the fiords (Sognefjord, "The fiord of dreams", which is the biggest fiord in the world).

KEY:
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: English
Local language was: Different than language of instruction.
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
Was learning the local language a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my knowledge
How much did you improve your English?
My level before: No problems in any areas (including slang)
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
How much did you improve your local language?
My level before: Did not speak it
My level after: Basic phrases
Personal comments:
I stayed on after my study period (to work) and only then started to learn Norwegian. Speaking the language is a great advantage in submerging in the pleasant culture. Although nearly everyone is fluent in English, they tend to speak Norwegian to each other, even if foreign friends are present.

Norwegians have the nice habit to organise parties at home before they go out (Vorspiel) as it is cheaper (though still expensive) to buy alcohol in the stores than to buy it in the pubs or clubs.

FINAL COMMENTS

The area is beatuiful, it is really worth travelling around if you are a nature fan. All Norwegians speak perfect English, and they are always ready to help you. However, their culture is different, you should consider this before judging! You have to understand their way of thinking to understand their behaviour. Some might not seem open at first. But on the other hand you will not experience any power related differences, everybody is equal.
