Course recommendations
IT IS NOT A GOOD UNIVERSITY if you're looking for academic excellence, anyway they give oportunities to all technical or science students to get the Cisco Computer Networks Asociate (CCNA)degree

Overall
I wish I had known...
I wish i had known it was such a small town and university, that the nightlife wasnt great at all, and that the local people, specially youth ones, were not nice.

Final comments
Well, as i said if you can choose any other university do it, it is a bad university, bad reputation and in a bad place. If you're spanish, like me, you should know that youre going to find too mmany spaniards there. Anyway I must say that i really enjoyed myself there because all erasmus use to be fun. Its not going to be horrible its just that im sure that other places are better. One las tip: Even it is still expensive, the life in wrexham is cheap for UK standars.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
because live in a house it's not much cheaper, the "city" itself is not interesting and the most of a student life in wrexham is inside the campus, which is well located and easy to get to any place in the town
