Overall
I wish I had known...
I would have liked to know that many old spanish people are "avares (french)/ tacanos(spanish)", I wouldn't have believed the owner of my flat when she told me she would renew the flat. I idn't have any contract.

Personal recommendation
I would recommend it to someone who also want to study very well: if you only want to have fun, choose a public university in Madrid, it'll be easier(this one is private, and quite hard)

4.0/5
Overall
Les cours sont intenses et par tranches de deux heures, ils sont soit uniquement le matin ou l'apres midi en fonction de l'année d'étude. Il y a environ six heures de cours par jours. Il est absolument nécessaire de consacrer de nombreuses heures de travail individuel en dehors des cours. Les professeurs sont disponibles et mettent en place des tutorats pour les élèves en difficulté. Les professeurs sont très qualifiés et connaissent pleinement leur matière. Les élèves sont de manière générale assez réservés et ont tendance à rester avec leurs groupes d'amis mais ils sont tous gentils individuelement. Le campus est ancien mais les classes sont bien équipées. En ce qui concerne les associations il n'y en a pas beaucoup et pour effectuer une activité artistique ou sportive il est préférable de chercher en dehors de ce qui est proposé par l'école. Finalement une bourse Erasmus est disponible pour les étudiants européens.

You can visit cities near Madrid such as Toledo, Segovia or an other one... prices are not very high for students.

Madrid is a great city, Spain a wunderful country. Don't miss its life, its food, its culture and try to get in contact with the people. In Madrid: Go to the Templo de Debod, the Atocha railway station and the Plaza de toros (bullfight ring)...

Not very the university is private and more like a school with a blackboard and students being called up to do examples. good if you get friendly with the teachers and they don´t make you go up.Good location in the centre of town. Would rather have gone there than Alcalá outside. Also university is a small part of life out here!!
