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)

Try to arrive in madrid a couple of weeks before term starts, finding an apartement can be quite tricky. Try to travel as much as you can.

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 Alcalß outside. Also university is a small part of life out here!!

Overall
I have studied here for 4 years, a degree in Industrial Engineering in ICAI. Probably the biggest difference with other prestigious Universities in Spain is the close relationship that the professors have with the students. They are always there to help you with doubts and guidance, and this doesn't happen so much in other places. Also, most of them are very experienced, both in teaching and work outside the university. 
Another good point are the laboratories, which are very complete and again above the standards of Spanish engineering schools, what leads to a more practical formation. 
The studies, however, are not easy, and a big number of students leave them before finishing (by their decision or by direction of the school), but if you work hard at the end it is worth it.
