Do not try to stick with foreign people. Don't try to get to know too many people neither but a few very good spanish friends and try to keep in touch with them after your stay. Which i find a pitty myself. It is not so bad when you don't know a lot of spanish before you go. I did not know a lot neither you learn it very quick. So this is not a reason NOT to go. Have a lot of fun when you are there this is THE experience of your life do not forget that!!!!!!!

I wish I had known there would be so many foreigners. I have nothing against them, but many foreign students have an attitude I don't like in relation with the host country.

Don't come for the quality of the courses, but to enjoy a different way of life and an exciting city.

It's a great experience, wherever you can or choose to go. Don't wait to learn the language and to have fun, you always stay a very short time.

Compared to my home university the Autónoma had a lower level. Most of the teachers were very nice and helpful to foreign students but don't expect any special treatment at the final exams (mostly MC). I recommend going to as much courses as possible in the beginning to get an overall image of the courses and the teachers. After three weeks you have to make the final decision which ones you want to take (matrícula).

I really liked it in Madrid as it is an exciting city that has a lot to offer, from the never-ending nightlife to beautiful parks, museums and just the spanish way of living. However, you have to keep in mind that it's a big city with a lot of traffic, construction sites (more than in other cities and all year round), noise and air pollution. In general buses are the cheapest way to travel around, only for short distances trains are sometimes a bit cheaper. A domestic low-cost airline is Vueling. There are a lot of different supermarket chains. Among the cheapest are Lidl and Día, a rather expensive one but with a wide range of products is El Corte Inglés. The best areas for going out at night are Malasaña, Huertas, Lavapiés, Arguelles and Plaza 2 de Mayo.

To be very patient with the bureaucracy and that you need to know people to get things done.

It's a little bit outside of Madrid, so if you live in the center like I do, it takes time to get to class (45 min-1 hour), but at least the campus has trees!!!!

Personal recommendation
Because this university is organised in faculties, you will be able to choose courses from other fields of study than the one you follow at home. so please, take the chance to choose some courses of history (spain one for example!), arts, languages, etc.. Moreover, just be cool, like the Spanish students who start to learn one week before their exams!
