Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain
Law, International, Undergraduate, Erasmus
Course recommendations
Try not to chose any subjet related to Local Law, because they are really hard. If you are Erasmus student your oportunities to chose are almost infinites. If you are looking for International and Communitarian Law, this is your place, but be careful, because courses are hard. In Politicsl, there are some very interesting subjetcs, specilly for Central and Eastern European Union. But be prepared to be treated for most of teachers as a usual student. Organisation is quite caotic, so try with all your forces to bring your califications with you to your country back.

Good university and opportunities of exchanges abroad

International Relations
I found the political science courses very interesting and useful for my future career ambitions. Good quality of teaching and studying methods. Teachers encourage both individual research and team work. The strength of seminars at ULB is that they stimulate a critical and analytical attitude towards a number of global issues.

Worth trying

I liked the campus and university overall but teachers tend to treat students from other countries in a harsh manner. I was enrolled at the university as a full time student, but I'm not from Belgium, and even though I speak French fluently, I'm not a native speaker. Professors weren't very helpful and welcoming, so don't be surprised by their racist attitude.

Personal recommendation
I did not seek the opportunity to go to Brussels, the opportunity came to me. I shortened my stay there because it lacked interest... The courses are not great, you don't get to interact much with students unless you go through all sort of rituals called the "baptism" (baptęme) in the beginning of the year... It's ridiculous: you have to drink until you're sick, eat things without knowing what they are, and do things you don't necessarily want to do... It's worse if you're female (which I am). All this grossed me out right from the start and even if I made friends with other international students (who were just as disgusted as I was!!), the whole point of being in a foreign country is to get to know the locals and interact with them. It's not at the university that you get to do this.
