Personal comments
it's cheaper to rent an apartment with colleagues (150 eur/month) instead of staying at the campus (230 eur/month). if you just stay for one semester than try to apply for a F visa, in this case you don't need a physical examination.

Course recommendations
all courses were taught in english, we had many presentations and some group works. depending on the year of your studies the courses are not that difficult, most of them i have already heard/learnt about at my home uni. normally it will be an open-book exam.

during the semester you won't have that much time to travel but you are allowed to miss courses. don't forget to take a guide of china with you, it's very helpful for organizing a trip.

Personal comments
the architecture cafe at the campus is very comfortable, there you also have internet access (wireless). many great night clubs such as mint & zapatas (every wednesday ladies night), windows, babyface. places to travel near shanghai: suzhou (zug 1 std), hangzhou (2 std), nanjing (3 std), and if you have more time you have to visit anhui (huangshan), yunnan, sichuan and xian, and of course the capital beijing.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
an aparment is much cheaper than staying at the campus. that's why the last 2 months i stayed with two colleagues in an apartment and it's easy to get one.

Personal comments
normally you get a single room with a bathroom in the international student building. the common kitchen is very small and has poor facilities. within few days you can get internet access if you apply for it.
