Personal recommendation
I would recommend this university and this destination to everyone, I had one of the best times of my life over there!nevertheless, courses given in English are only followed by erasmus students, so it is not the best way to meet Finnish students.

Final comments
I would recommend to have a visa, so that you could go and visit Russia, which is an unforgettable experience! The erasmus students have Finnish tutors, which is a good way to learn a lot about Finnish student life and places to visit.

There were no any problems with language and communication. Everyone in Finland speaks perfect English (as well as some German and/or French), so my poor Finnish was not a problem at all.
