The language of instruction was Finnish, but there was a special group for the foreign students, so I didn't have any problems with communication or whatsoever

Personal comments
The courses were not too bad, but did not add to my current knowledge. I was too far ahead already and the courses were actually of very little use to me.

Personal recommendation
The people are all very friendly and more than willing to help you out when you have a problem. Many things are arranged for the foreign students, and in a very good way even.

Final comments
This was the best period of my life. I'm still homesick for good old Oulu and all the wonderful people that I got acquainted to. No way I would have wanted to miss this experience. I will always remember it and have become even more certain that there's nothing in the world more satisfying than travelling around and to get to know other cultures and the people who represent those different cultures!

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
I liked living on campus very much, because most of the other exchange students lived there too, and also native students lived there. So it was a good and interesting mixture of cultures and my friends all lived very close to me.
