Final comments
Ryanair fly directly into Zaragoza from Milan (Bergamo) and London (Stansted)which is inexpensive and good value in my view, watch the weight of your luggage though! It is good to arrive in the city a few weeks before your course starts as you can get used of the place. accommodation is easily found, check the notice boards in the main campus. You can get a good flat for Ç40 per week. The faculties are spread out all over the city but there is a very efficient and cheap bus network.

The university runs very good language courses to small groups arranged by ability. They are not free of charge but are well worth the money. Sign up early as they are popular. Try to get in to the first one of the term.

Cafe Matarrana at the top of Gran Via has the best bocodillos you will ever taste. As for nightlife you can find hundreds of bars in the Casco Viejo open until the early hours of the morning.
