Course recommendations
overall, very satisfactory. maybe it would be better to have more paper support to study on (books, fotocopies) rather than just notes taken during the lessons.

Final comments
Even though this report might not sound all to positive.. Just do it, you learn the same or maybe even more from negative experiences. I┤m not saying that overall it was a negative experience, but some thing just weren┤t as good as I expected. There┤s always differences with your home uni.

Personal comments
If you come to Bilbao, come at the beginning of September and look for your own place... The agency that Deusto offers you is ok, but it┤s very easy to find something on your own.. For example through this website...

Personal comments
The year abroad was the major factor in my language learning which at that point had lasted 9 years in total. The experience of going to a university where you could not avoid listening to 4 or 5 hours of spanish every day was invaluable to me and made me fluent. Over the year communication became easier and I felt more and more confident as time went by.

Why?
It was very handy to get in to university every day, close to shops and local services. Also there was a friendly atmosphere and opportunity to make friends from all over the world.

Irish Stones pub is a favourite with Erasmus as a meeting point at the beginning of a night out. Cafe Boulevard was one of my favourites, Gallerias de Urquijo for nightlife was brilliant fun. Also Congreso, Conjunto clubs and Casco Viejo bars are great. Events; carnival around feb/march in Bilbao and surrounding area, San Fermin and the running of the bulls in summer, not to be missed. St Patrick's day was celebrated to the full in the Irish Stones. Also take a trip to the Guggenheim museum, plenty of interesting things to see there!
