I would have liked to have a couse in Hungarian but since I arrived here one month after the course started I decided not to take part but to try to learn the basics by myself, which was a little bit hard since I could only fing books totally in Hungarian.

Course recommendations
I came here for doing independent research and was not planning to have any courses. I would have liked to take part into one chemistry course if there had been one in english.

Personal recommendation
Pecs is a nice little city, the weather is more or less great. As a chemical student I enjoyed the top international knowledge they have here in my field, but there should be more resources for basic equipment. Otherwise I enjoyed my stay very much and I will return here as a graduate in the autumn. Got a schoolarship from CIMO.

Final comments
Use Pecs as a base for traveling in any direction. As a student you get cheap tickets for the trains. But use ONLY the Intercity trains since the regular are way too slow. Gasoline is expensive - no need for a car. And enjoy the time here. For me, I suddenly run out of time. Could have spent one more month here. Still have a lot to see.

I liked going to any restaurant in the evening, having a tasteful meal and a good coffee together with some of the other Erasmus students. The food is reletively cheap and the atmosphere is very relaxing here downtown Pecs.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Exchange students pay 10.000 forint for one month in a double room of about 15 sqm. You can rent a nice apartment, for example a room with kitchen, all the equipment (TV etc) included for about 30.000 Forint.

Personal comments
A good thing with the campus is that you meet a lot of other people. That's why I chose it, but next time I'll take the apartment. The double room is ok for two months but then it starts to feel too small...
