Personal recommendation
It is a great place to improve your spanish, a highly regarded academic institution. Excellent way to investigate another culture because you can meet so many people and experience life in parallel to your own university in at home. Teaching and course content is of high standard although a few improvements could be made. Options for courses are varied and interesting. There is the opportunity to get involved in clubs and activities within the university as well.

Final comments
Don't put so much emphasis on study that it stops you from getting out there. Mixing with local people and exploring your surrounding is also very important. Take a few trips out during the time that you have, I went to Madrid, Salamanca and Barcelona and loved all three places. I had a great time and would definitely go back! I will say that you have to be aware of pickpockets there but don’t let that spoil it. Sort out a doctor as soon as possible. You never know what can happen and getting to see someone when something does can involve a lot of waiting, i.e. days. Other than that, go for it! Enjoy yourselves and be safe!

Personal comments
Open a Spanish bank account and transfer money this way. It is much cheaper and easier than withdrawing money from cash machines all the time.

Personal comments
The year abroad was the major factor in my language learning which has 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 is what has made me fluent. Over the year communication became easier and I felt more and more confident as time went by.

Dubliners was a great place to have a drink and they made a special effort to create events that allowed the Erasmus kids, the US students, and the locals. Getxo was a great city to escape to by metro. It had the best cafe's and fantastic window shopping.
