Personal recommendation
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!!

Pontificia Comillas is a prestigious and famous school in Spain. Be sure to check out the recruitment forums if you are looking for an internship or a job. Try to socialize with locals and participate in sports arrangements and other arrangements.

Universidad Pontificia Comillas de Madrid
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.

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.

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)

If you are going with erasmus you have to take care about the great danger to stay with only erasmus students. Even if it could be very funny it's not really profitable (to my mind)

do not underestimate the level of study although it seems quite easy in the beginning - the exams are usually a bit more difficult than expected.
