Course recommendations
Be aware that most classes (90%) are in Catalan, not in Castellano (Spanish). You can ask the professor to switch, but quite a few refuse, and even if they accept, chances are good that books, lab guides, and exam sheets will still be in Catalan. Good courses are Optimització i Simulació, Termodinàmica, Metrología y Verificación, and Grafs i Decisió. Do not bother to go to Tecnología de Materiales, or Teoria de Màquines.

Some teachers view international students as a source of annoyance (for their preference for Castellano). A little more good will wouldn't do harm there.

Choose courses after 12 in the morning when hangover after a chupitos session is over! Youll hate to miss parties because of courses in the morning!

at least in my case there wasn´t any guiding or assistance in the beginning, so I had to find it out all by myself. They could provide a bit more information to help the exchange students to get started

When you are an erasmus student, you dont have special laws in comparaisons to the local students, so you need to preapare yourself more than the others.
