There's a lot to do for such a small town. Definitelly Carnevales are crazy and a must to see. For travelling Andalucia has a lot to offer (Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, Ronda), Portugal and Marroco are really close too, but do not miss the small special places in the province of Cadiz neither (El Palmar, Canos de Meca, Tarifa, Vejer, Arcos - amazing). Advice - don't be shy, try to talk to local people even though you don't speak perfect spanish and you'll see you become good friends with them. Do not be afraid to try something new too, the culture is different, just try to live like they do for a while...

Don't expect any help from the International Office. The best place to find accomodation is in "Cambalache", the local newspaper.You can also find good student flats posted on the noticeboards around the university. These will mostly be for sharing with other ERASMUS students however.

Don't be afraid to take 5th year classes. Try and meet as many gaditanos as you can. Don't get annoyed at the whole "guiri" thing.

TRy and book into a hostal before you arrive. Quo Cadiz is particularly cheap, but has severe restrictions on your liberty(lock out at 12). For a more bohemian(and slightly more chaotic)experience. Book into the Casa Caracol(4 Suarez de Salazar, near Calle Gloria, next to La Plaza de San Juan de Dios). Also, take time out to visit Portugal, Marocco, Canos de Meca, Granada, Sevilla and Tarifa whilst your there. Oh, and bring a good costume for canaval.

I wish I had known not to ship my clothing before I had left via boat. It took forever. Should have shipped by air.

If you want to live in a small city with a good amount to do this is a great place to choose. It was on the smallish side for me, but the beaches were great.

I had a great time studying abroad and learned an incredible amount about Spanish culture and my language skills improved ten fold. I think it is the only way to truly know a language. Take advantage of travelling...it's a great adventure.

Spain is still very close to England and Germany, so it did not require any special preparations. I am very used to travelling and do not feel uncomfortable with unfamiliar situations.

If you chose Cádiz, you will study in very modern buildings, situated right at the beach. The atmosphere is stimulating and the offer of courses very extensive and diverse. However, Computer facilities are very restricted, so bring along a laptop if you own one, or borrow one from a good friend. If you are lucky you will be taught by energetic and very friendly and helpful teachers, as most most of them were.

Spain is a country that is very different to those of northern Europe. Prepare yourself for having to get used to a completely different life-style and - rhythm, which can be very tempting and is very enjoyable (siesta, extensive dinners and nights). Never take people too personal when they seem a bit rough, it is just their temperament, their immense verbal speed and their coarse voices from all the smoking. Make sure you get a taste of the cultural life, the Flamenco (which I am learning now), the bullfighting, the stunning horses, the cuisine (wine, cheese, paella - which I love to cook) and of course the beautiful architecture. Make sure you do a trip through Andalucia, where the african influence has touched all aspects of spanish life.

there is no need for stress - the first days of searching for flats and arranging all "paper-stuff" can be annyoing and dificult - but mostly it turns out well. there is no need for stress.

A spanish course at the faculty "de las letras" is maybe one of the best things you can do - you will get to know the mentality a bit better and you for sure will meet a lot of Erasmus-students which will turn into your furture friend or flat-mates- Normally also a lot of meeting-points for going out are arranged.

Cádiz - the best you can chosse! Travelling in Andalucia is really fascinating! A trip to Portugal is also a trip you shouldn't miss. It's recommended to rent cars and travel with a group of persons. Rent the cars via Internet - a lot cheaper (approx. 120€ for a week)

For me it was crucial to make trips out of the city as cadiz is quite a small town that doesnt offer a great variety of activities (especially in winter, if its too cold for the beach). In general i really loved my stay there, and so will you. Wheather, people, beach, university.... everything is making you feel very comfortable!
