Personal comments
The teachers spoke to me in English or German. If they couldn´t say something they asked another student to translate. People at the university were helpful and tried to find a way to communicate. It would´ve been nice to be able to speak more with other students who seemed very friendly but we didn´t share a same language. Anyway English is not my first langauge either! In Hungary people don´t speak very much English and in shops and railway-stations I usually tried to cope in Hungarian. Finding an apartment indipendently was very difficult because of the language and it took some time, but luckily we met some helpful Hungarians and managed to find a nice place!

Personal spending habits
Food was mostly cheaper than in Finland (imported food was not so cheap) and so were the expenses of the accommodation. Restaurants and travel were also cheaper but I spent more on them than I normally do.

The prices went up quite a lot in bars after new year and I wonder how fast the inflation-rate grows..?

Course recommendations
I studied at the faculty of art. There you choose one "main teacher" for your stay. Find out what style and technique each teacher emphasizes in his/her teaching before you make a decision. Some teachers focus on drawing skills, some emphasize finding a way of expression. Tell them what are your expectations!

I couldn´t attend lectures because they were all in Hungarian. Would be nice to have some foreign visiting lecturers speaking in English!

I wish I had known...
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!

Personal recommendation
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.

My favourite night spot was Rák. The Elephant served the best pizzas (but there ARE cheaper places where to eat too!). The view from the tv-tower is definately worth checking! There are also many interesting looking houses on the mountain if you like to have some exercise climbing those hills ;-)

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I lived first at campus but I chose to move to an apartment with another exchange-student because we wanted to have more of a home-feeling and our own kitchen and bathroom. I was very happy with our cosy little apartment!

Campus was fine, too! It´s easy to meet lot of other students in there. Our room was newly renovated and clean and there was internet-access in another room in a corridor. There was some noice on disco-nights though (Mon&Wed). There were some language problems with the stuff because they didn´t speak English, but there were always some helpful Hungarian students who would translate!
