Overall
I wish I had known...
more about enschede itself. the city is not so great (in my opinion almost every other city in NL of the same size and bigger offers more ), and there is not so much to do. the university is pretty good.

if you want a good university and the city is second: come if you want a great life: go to utrecht, groningen, amsterdam, etc.

Final comments
at the university of twente and enschede the knowledge of dutch is not really helpful. don't worry if you don't. here is a student groupt called S.M.I.T. which you can contact all time if you have questions and problems all time. you'll get a personal mentor from them at your arrival, which is very nive they also offer some activities. travelling is mainly by train (connections are ok, proces are ok: they have a pretty good discount card here). you NEED a bike here. without bike you are noone: you won't get friends if you don't get yourself a bike ;-)

Housing
Type of housing: A room in the city, on Campus and a residence
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: in the residence - Macandra
Why?
Because even though there are better conditions on campus, Macandra is located in the city and the social life is a lot more intense. (NOTE: the rating of the accomodation is refered to Macandra)

First I lived in a room at De Klomp (in the city) which, apart of being extremely expensive, the conditions were not so good. After I mooved to a very nice room on Campus. Really big, clean, quiet and incredible internet facilities. In the end I moved to Macandra where I met a lot of nice people and also my friends from my course. The conditions are not as good - the room is quite small, no internet and you have to share the kitchen with other 29 people. Still worth it!

the housing on campus are quite nice and have a great computer connection but they are a little far off the city center. i personally would chose Macandra (near the city-center) again. it consits of about 250 students (~80% exchange students). that is really nice to meet people and to chat. the facilities are not so great, dirty and old, expensive and small room. but for me the people were the most important thing. they are great!!

Academic
Course recommendations
I followed the Technology and Management program for international students where all of us were from different countries. Since not all international students spoke a very good English at the begining there was some benevolence from the teachers, but it was very interesting.

Personal comments
No. I think it was a year when I learned a lot of interesting subjects, had nice teachers (most of them) and the lectures were interactive and comunicative. The environment among the students was great!

Expenses
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
The food price is not so higher or almost the same as in Portugal as long as we look at the prices. Telephone for the obvious reasons. Nightlife because I had a lot more in Holland than in Portugal but it's still like the double or triple price. Travelling is really cheap, fast and easy, I just spent more because in Portugal I never travelled so much.

Most of the shops are closed around 7:00 P.M. from Monday to Thur. and even 2 hrs earlier on Fri. and Sat.. On Sunday, all shops are closed except a few restaurants. So remember to feed your fridge before starving to death^_^
