Personal recommendation
This a pretty university. They get alot of visiting lecturers for international relations and this was a major bonus for me. It is wonderful to get a different insight into issues. I had American, Finnish and German teachers.

Final comments
You will experience a culture shock in Finland. Perhaps the most striking thing for me was how quiet the place is. Words are kept to a minimum Finland and for the talkers among you, it could well be an incrediably frustrating place to live. However, many Finns, though reserved were welcoming and hospitable.I hope to go back and stay in a cabin by a lake someday.

Expenses
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
The main reason is evident: Finland is more expensive than Spain, specially in food and drinks. I spent more in travelling just because in Spain I din't travel and in telephone because it is more expensive make international phones (but I spent less money when I phoned with my finnish number to finnish numbers too. The housing was cheaper because of the model of housing for students in Finland.

Personal comments
My major was finnish and after that year I could already manage very well in it. The finnish people I could talk with were helpful and very nice. The lecturer in finnish language didn't want to talk in english even if we sometimes didn't understand and it is the best way to be motivated to learn.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: With a family
Why?
Such an arrangement would really let me get to know Finnish people. However, many Finns are quite private, I am not sure how well a family would cope with an 'outsider'.

Personal comments
The housing, while I was there, was handled by a company independent of the University. They were very professional and it was quite challenging, to work with the staff. However, they were professional and spoke very good english.

I like rock&roll music, so I ought to recomend club as:Doris, Ruma or Camel. Otherwise, you also have got other nice clubs and pubs for dancing or taking a drink. Moreover, there are special acts during the year, as the "bapoo" party, in which all the citiziens take part on this party.
