My Study Experience in Southeast University
Iryna S
China, Graduate
Business Studies, 2018
Overall
Southeast University is one of the best schools in China. It offers a wide variery of courses, mainly focusing on engineering and architecture. 
I'm currently enrolled in Master's Programme (International Businness). During two years of my studying here my coursework included: Business Data Analysis, Corporate Strategy Management, Modern Economics, Marketing, International Finance, etc. I also had the opportunity to improve my knowledge in Chinese language and culture. 
All the teachers can speak good English and are very friendly and helpful.
The university has three campuses. International students usually live in Sipailou and Jiulonghu campuses. You can find everything on the campus: canteens, shops, hairdresser's, etc.
Overall, I have a positive experience studying at Southeast University.

Housing
Type of housing: International Halls of Student Accommodation
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
It would be more of a challenging experience, and require you to mix even more with the locals.

Personal comments
Its basic, but cheap. You can choose either to room share or have an individual room. The individual room are come with ensuite toliet (western toilets) and showers, fridge, TV, phone, and cleaner - you could say a basic hotel. The room share is a set up communal, and the toilets are squats.

Personal spending habits
I made quite a few international calls back up and this was very expensive. Nightlife was cheap, and I didn't really go out much, too busy during the days going places. Travel is cheap, and there is so much to see and some many places to go.

Take advantage of it. Students who have been there for longer are willing to give you advice, teachers can be flexible if they see you as a hard worker, make lots of friends with everyone.

Final comments
Make sure you got insurance, and money incase of an emergency. Find out where your local blackmarket dealer is, because you'll get a better rate for your dollars. Don't bother with any other currency apart from US Dollars. And don't be afraid to haggle. It pays. There are many people doing the same thing and supply exceeds demand.
