Final comments
It was good year, what a pity that Masetr course takes only 1 year here. I would enjoy it more if I wouldn't be under the time pressure at the end of semesters. However, different methods of teaching and good contact with lecturers and students make me satisfied.

As I was studying English in Poland and then I was living in UK last year I coped quite well. Nevertheless, contact with teachers and students, studying - reading and writing plenty of essays improved my English!

Quite good parties and music events at University's club LCR, also crazy parties made by sociaties (Greek, Mexican..). For a coffee break I would recommend Union Pub, also Blend (on Campus), however, if you have more time go to in city center, nice atomsphere in Nero and few other coffee shops.
