Personal comments
Some students speak english or a little bit French, but don't count on it. If you want to survive in Romania, you have to learn Romanian. Nobody of the administration (for visa,...)can speak a foreign language

Course recommendations
Professors will help you with the choise of the courses, but not how to read your timetable. They work with a two-week system, and they can change the timetable everyday. Sometimes you miss lessons you don't want to miss, sometimes you're waiting for a professor, who is not coming. Advise: check your timetable everyday

Get your visa in time in your own country, or you will have a lot of problems at the border, and also to get your visa extended. Learn Romanian.

Personal comments
On the campus there are a lot of nice cafes, don't go in the city-center, the ones you find there are more expensive. It's very cheap to go to the film, every film is in the original version. The best parties are privat parties, at the other parties, there is only Romanian folkmusic and latin- music

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
On the campus, although it's not so clean, you can get in touch very easily with other students, and if you have a problem, there will be always somebody to help you

Personal comments
Noisy, dirty, nice neighbours, near the university, near student-restaurants and internet. As a foreign student you have a room of your own, the showers and the toilets you share with the others. The room is big enough, because normally they sleep with two there.
