I wish I had known...
I always knew that Spaniards were layed back. Yet when I arrived, it still suprised me with the "mañana, mañana" attitude. You can't expect for things to happen incredibly fast here. It usually takes awhile and always takes a lot of persistence on your part.

Personal recommendation
The University of Vigo is under a lot of construction. I feel that in 5 years it will be a wonderful place to study. As of right now, I don't think they are fully prepared to handle exchange students. So, if you are looking for a program within the next five years, I would suggest looking into different locations. Also, this area can be frustrating since there is a lot of Gallego spoken. Madrid would have been my first choice.

I suggest that you make lots of international friends while you are here!! That way you have free lodging if you are able to travel throughout Europe. Be outgoing and throw yourself into different situations. I am taking a dance class... I may have two left feet and be the worst at the rumba in the class, but it is fun. Don't sit and wait for things to happen to you... Jump in!

Before I i had arrived to Spain i had studied spanish for 4 years at secondary school, but as it already had been 5 years after graduating from secondary school i didnt remember a lot of it. But day by day i got to remember more and more from what i had learnt before. The hardes part of the studies in Spain was taking notes at lectures. Cause, as the whole world probably knows Spanish are one of the most fast speaking ones : )). But if u want to improve your spanish Vigo is probably one of the most suitable place for that as people dont really speak english there although a lot of the times they do understand it.

Personal spending habits
When at home, I don't travel as much. Therefore I don't spend as much. Also in Spain, it is very expensive to have a phone connection in your apartment, hence I had to purchase a cell phone. Overall it is difficult for me to comment on the expenses because of the nature of the ISEP program. I payed a lump sum up front.

Personal comments
In Spain you need pictures of yourself for everything. Wait until you get here to buy them. It seems that every mom and pop store can take your picture for a reasonable price.

At times the opportunities to speak in Spanish at the University of Vigo were scarce. This is because so many of the Erasmus students spoke English also. It is easy to rely on English rather than to put yourself in an uncomfortable situation. Also, the fact that Vigo is in Galcia needs to be addressed. Many people speak Gallego and all of the University materials are printed in it. When choosing your classes, you must be sure to get classes instructed in Spanish.
