Overall
I wish I had known...
I chose that place to learn the language . The city is not interesting at all. There are not many locals, and too many internationals, so they don't pay much attention to the erasmus students. I don't like the style of life here, but I met very nice people here. My stay would have been better in some other country, but it was ok.

Personal recommendation
Architecture is not the best school in that university. I think the master courses are better than the undergraduated ones. That school works as a school for children, very much control over the students.

Final comments
Get the city link card to get reducctions on bus trips. Great trips with your other erasmus friends. Great trips with the rucksack club. Be carefull with: -university accomodattion because it is a business. Don't sign in any paper. It is better to look for a private accommodation - Private accommodation: Go to a agency, never by yourself, because there are many illegal contracts. -the banks steal your money if your account is under 0 and there is some check coming People are quite alcoholic.

Course recommendations
don't choose Fionn as tutor. She's a good reseacher, but she does not know how to teach or to read plans.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: private flat
Why?
I lived in a residence from university during my three first weeks .They pretend me to force to stand there during all the year, but the conditions were not the ones stipulated. I had some problems to move out from there. It was close to Uni, but more expensive, noisy, unsafe and it was never so cosy as to live in a private flat, as I did afterwards.

Personal comments
I rent a flat by a property agency,it was great. I had good flatemates,and nice and cheap flat in the city centre. It was old, but the agency fixed everything. My stay in the residence from university was quite uncomfortable: expensive, fire alarms every 15 days, I just had a very small room and not enough space.
