Try to make friends with students from other countries. Don't hang with students from your home country. Find Spanish and Latinamericans friends to really learn Spanish. Have fun! Go out at night. Especially in the beginning. That's when you get to know most people.

Santander is fantastic because of the ocean, you'll love it. But University life is quite hard, forget to receive any special treatment from teachers. You're not different from local students, if you have some problem they just don't care.

More information about other countries as I have found out that before I was quite ignorant of what was happening in the world whereas now I am learning more about the political situations in other countries and their histories.

Santander has really cheap flights as Ryan air flies to London, Rome and Frankfurt. Also it┤s only 1.5hours from Bilbao which also has a great airport. There is no dialect spoken here so to learn castellano it is one of the best parts in Spain. It is right on the coast so if you like seafood you will love Santander. Has a beautiful beach too...

Little details, like they don┤t expect you to possibly select a class schedule where nothing overlaps. If I would have known that I would have taken more of the classes I wanted first semester and not worried so much about it.

Management is an ok course to study and it is easy to pass, university life doesn't really exist and the students aren't very sociable.

If I was to do it all again I would perhaps go somewhere further south as the people in the north are quite cold and it was difficult gettin to know spanish people. Get to know as many people as you can and don't fall into the trap of speaking your native language.
