Personal spending habits
Everything is more expensive in England that in my home country. And everything is more expensive in London than in the rest of England! As for travelling, London is very well positioned if you want to travel to Europe (Belgium, France, Holland, Germany, Scotland, etc) so itīs difficult not to be tented!

Personal comments
Well, I didnīt get a debit card, the bank just issued a savings card for me, so I couldnīt use it to pay, just to get money at ATMs... Cost-saving tip: walking from the campus to central London only takes half an hour, so itīs a nice walk when itīs sunny and you can spare the tube

Course recommendations
It entirely depends on your degree, but if you do European Studies at the faculty of Social Science, go for any subject taught by Prof. Rojas! He's an excellent economist.

Personal comments
If you're an exchange student, donīt spend too long on your assignments, go out and enjoy instead, as in general itīs pretty easy to get good marks as your essays goes (erasmus' level is very good compared to locals' level). I advise you to attend lessons, prepare them half decently in advance and concentrate, that takes much of the hard work away later on!

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Living on campus when you are a foreign student is very good to meet people and to learn living on its own without any parents.

Personal comments
My accomodation named Mac Laren House was next to my university (about 2 minutes on foot). It was organized in appartments of 7 rooms with one big kitchen. All the rooms were quite small but they had its own bathroom and toilets which was quite appreciable. The rooms were clean when I arrived whereas it was not the case for the kitchen.

Take the chance to travel to European capitals, itīs just one night trip. Go out as much as you can and mingle up with everyone, having fun is also a good way to achieve your objectives.

I wish I had known...
The exact classes I could choose from. I only knew the overall course title and was first told the exact courses offered after I had arrived. I had to make a quick decision and was unable to prepare from home.

Personal comments
Despite the high fare, sharing a flat of the halls of residence with other five international students was good fun. I feel curious about what living somewhere else, with standard londonners (if they exist at all!), would have been like, but Iīm happy to have lived by the uni, that entails quite a number of advantages.
