Twist and Shout is good fun on Thursdays. Laura's cafe serves great coffee mochas. Go on as many trips offered by the erasmus network as possible.

Of all the university's own housing, I feel that mine was the best - although they asked rather a lot in terms of cleaning when we left despite how it was when we arrived

Course recommendations
I didn't choose my modules, they just had to match with my home school. I actually stopped studying for one of them however as it was badly taught and irrelevant to what I want to do.
