Try to communicate to local people as much as you can. Many people spend too much time with other Erasmus people but not really with Spanish students.

Course recommendations
Courses tend to overlap each other. However, that doesnt really constitute a problem b/c you can always ask for notes from other students.

Overall
I wish I had known...
There is a really strong wind in Zaragoza called the "cierzo". It makes some days (especially in winter) very uncomfortable.

Personal recommendation
The tourism courses are not very demanding in academical terms, but they give a different insight into the tourism industry. As an exchange student you can choose from different years.

Personal comments
Erasmus students mainly meet at the clubs Tierra, El 66 and Casa del Loco; all of which have a pretty good mixture of (European) music. Other areas for going out include La Zona (behind the Corte Inglés) and El Rollo. Best Café: Café Zen (Calle Alfonso) and Café Antiguo (Gran Via)

Personal comments
Campus accomodation is very expensive (around 500 Euros/month) and most comments I heard weren't particularly positive (noisy, small rooms...). Generally it is absolutely no problem to find a room in a shared apartment at a reasonable price. However, try not to have exceedingly high expectations in terms of facilities at the apartments.
