Interaction with teachers was quite disappointing. Some of them really didn't care if you were a foreigner, they treated you as other spanish students, even if you had some problems.

Final comments
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.

Don't miss anything. There's enough time to try every night spot. Imperative to visit the more beaches you can, there are incredible places to see.

Personal comments
There's no need in asking University help, since there is plenty of free rooms and flats. It's not expensive, but the monthly rate of houses near the sea increases a lot from June, provided they let you stay in.
