Well, the administration is really efficient, they provide you the access of the university, a housing, and a "Kummi" who will pick you up at the airport to your flat, and this kummi will help you during your stay... So really you just have to sign ,pack your stuff and the rest is waiting for you

Be prepared for the weather and for a long and dark winter. The studies are the priority but if you manage travel as much as you can. Do not get close to people from your home country, open your mind and get into the international environment from the beginning. Try to meet Finnish people, you will get very close and honest friends. If possible, get housing close to other Erasmus, it will help you to socialize.
