Personal comments
The language of instruction in the programme was English which is my native language.Since English is mostly spoken in the host country and the unversity (third language after Finnish and Swedish)communication wasnot a problem to me. Learning the nationallanguage was quite interesting to me.

Personal recommendation
It is one of the accredited Universities in Europe where tuition is free(world standard).This University should open it doors to students from developing countries where there shortages of higher institutions of learning. I would like to thank the University administrators for their high standard education offered to me freely.There are few free Universities with good qualities in the world today.

Final comments
I have learned better experiences in studying abroad,and I am so delighted.I am more useful and knowledgeable than before.One thinks that he/she knows many things but only realises that he/she knows very little when he/she travels abroad, meet different people,learn different cultures,and see many new things and places.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
It is simply because the Apartment/House is owned and managed by the Centre for International Mobility(CIMO),which is a non- profit organisation. Offers Apartments at relatively cheap rate only to international students. These Apartments are well equiped,that is the sitting rooms,dinning tables,kitchen utensils,and bedrooms are furnished.

Personal comments
Where I reside, even though it is independently chosen,the housing conditions are better than those in other student residences offered by some local housing companies.Generally, there are good student housing facilities in my host unversity country.
