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.

Important factors in my choice (1) Unimportant – (4) Very important

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.

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.
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.

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.
