Personal assessment
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Apartments can be quite cheap if you find the right place. Our apartment was overlooking the beach which is why we paid more than other people €270 per month where others found apartments for €180 per month, but we paid for the location.
Personal comments:
The university has a special office which helps foreign students to find accomodation. The best option is to get there early in September when you can take your pick from all the apartments available, we went at the end of september when it was more difficult to find apartments.

Personal social experience
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
Did not get involved.
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Activities: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Nightlife: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
I think Bilbao is a great city for going out. You have thousands of bars here, and everybody will find something . I would recomment the Cafe Antchokia. But there you have mor alternative music. Depends on what you like

Language difficulties
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Administrative / Institutional
Language of instruction: Spanish
Was learning Spanish a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Spanish
How much did you improve your Spanish?
My level before: Everyday knowledge (shopping, directions, etc.)
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
At first it was hard because at times it was hard to interact with the locals but there were many international students to meet and talk to and as the year progressed we made friends with some of the locals so that was worthwhile.

I do NOT recommend flying with Air France, because for sure they will lost your luggage.Moreover you would not receive any your money back, waiting a looong time for your lagguage. The airport in Bilbao is not situated in the centre and you have to be prepared for a 30 minute journey with an autobus. Apart from it,the spanish people are very nice and helpful for forein students, but have some problems with english.
