I wish I had known...
I had already know this, but I know that other students said that they had wished they had known that everyone dresses really nicely. There were times when certain students felt uncomfortable because they were underdressed (shorts, tee-shirt, flip-flops, etc), and many found themselves buying clothes there. Best to bring nice clothes with you so that you don't have to spend the money when you get there buying new stuff unless you were already planning on shopping there.

A great university. Knowledgable professors, helpful program directors and assistants, and a great location in the center of the city. I would highly recommend it to pretty much anyone.

It definitely helps to have atleast a basic level of spanish. It is not a very touristy city, so not too many people speak english.

I wish I had known...
I am glad that I didn´t have a ERASMUS grant for one year because I would have prefered to make an internship than going another semester to the university. The quality of the courses wasn´t so high and I didn´t improve so much. While you are working with spanish people, I think, you still get to know more about the country and you have more opportunities to improve.

Organize an introduction day or week for the international students! Help them understand the university-system!

The ERASMUS center, organized by students, is quite good. Go there, get an ID, and they will send you about one or two short messages a week and send you letters with all important student-parties and student-travels. They are really good, and mainly in the beginning it helps you to know more people.

Leave early enough to be able to adapt (read: spend some holidays) in the city where you will live in. When the academic year starts, it will still feel a little as holidays, but not as much as before. It is also very useful to already start and learn the language before the academic year.

An excellent time to be had. Lectures are a bit daunting at first, but lecturers generally helpful to international students. Take the time to travel around the outskirts of Valencia and make sure you're there for Las Fallas and San Juan.

A lot. Like how much paper work you had to do just to register. But things just pop up on the way so you can never really be 100% ready.

To be less bureaucratic. To build a "buddy system", where local students help the exchange students with all the basic things such as registering for subjects etc. An international office where people actually can speak english.

Valencia is a nice and cosy city to live in. The social life is great and you will never get bored. Be sure to make contacts with the local people or better yet share an appartment with other local students.
