Overall
I wish I had known...
I was prepared for going to an east european country, so I knew what to expect (I did not have high expectations for accomodation and facilities), but I was surprised for what we got! It was above my expectations. Be flexible and see everything as a big adventure, then I am sure you will have a lot of fun!

Personal recommendation
I liked Pecs a lot, it is really a beautiful town, especially when it becomes spring and summer, the country is so beautiful then! And because it is situated in the south you have easy access to Croatia, which is a totally different country. Oh take toiletpaper with you to hungary because many places don't have and prepare yourself that the toilets don't have lockers, which is really annoying at the beginning but everything gets familiar...

Travel tips: I went to Plitvice in Croatia (it is a national park, really beautiful any time of the year), we crossed war area which was pretty impressive. Transsylvania (roemenia) is great too, but you need a visa for that. But don't forget to take a look around in Hungary as well, Budapest, lake Balaton, Eger, the puszta are definately worth a visit. What impressed me as well, but you have to like it, was the communist town Ajka, Near lake balaton, build by the russians and now half of the fabrics are closed, you can see the results of fourthy years of communism. I went there with a friend who lived there and he showed me the fabrics and the lakes, they were so blue, incredible, but the lakes were heavily poisened by chemicals, it was chemical blue, and the area had a radio-activity of 5,8 so beware..

Overall
IT was interesting and I felt I progressed further than I thought possible. With the help of the study skills department I feel confident to take my career in a new direction. The college allowed me all the access I needed and the small scale of the college provided a family atmosphere.
The course leader is excellent, but the course has been understaffed for much of the time. This impacted on availability to tutoring hours. The final show which is important for the future was not publicised properly by the college and very few people saw it as a result. This was very disappointing. The lectures were exciting and informative and the course leader was assessable. The accessible of the whole college was good, which means one could work in any media. Learning support was well managed and useful.

Overall
The city is rather quiet and seems to a place for study oriented students and in the first semester, you might not feel the intensity of the course since the work load won't be heavy but that changes in the 2nd semester showing you that they use the first semester to settle you down and introduce you calmly to the course. The teachers put in plenty of effort to make sure all the students understand the work and always try to create time for outside class consultation though the issue comes in looking for outside class activities to take part in. These opportunities have to be rather looked for since they won't be at your door step upon entering the university.

Personal spending habits
When you are abroad it is much easier to travel to the neighbour countries. Back home I can't travel like I did in Hungary. The reason why I spent in total more money than I spent at home is mainly because of travelling, but also because you have more costs (you don't go to your parents for a weekend), and because the country is so cheep you are going to spent more, sounds paradoxal but it is true. You are going out for dinner more often, and because you don't have the obligations you should have at home you have more time to do things (like travelling and going out, but the beer is so cheap that you spend less than you should do at home)

Personal comments
we bought our pots and pans new at the sundaymorning market and it was not that difficult to find the cheapest stuff. I opened a bank account in pecs because otherwise I had two pay two dollars each time when I should draw money from a cash machine, and in half a year that can be a lot! So I think I saved money on doing that, but you need to find somebody who speaks hungarian to go with you, but that was not a problem.

It would´ve been nice to start looking for an apartment already in my home-country, but I understand how difficult it´d be to organize!

Faculty of art is small and flexible. You´ll soon meet everyone and as an exchange-student you´ll be able to choose the courses you like.
