Course recommendations
I only say that University of Tampere is better than mine. I have learned more during a year than last five years in Spain. The lessons are more practicals and there are a lot of interesting seminars.

Final comments
Tampere is the second biggest city in Finland, so it's not a small village. You can find theatres, cinemas, a lot of shops, cafeterias, etc. But it's not a big city neither. You can find a lot of green there, woods with beautiful lakes. Sometimes you miss sun there, but the winter is marvelous. As for the trips go to Tallin, Lapland and St. Petersburg!!

Personal comments
Housing at this university is a little bit like a russian roulette: you can be very lucky or very unfortunate. I was more or less in the middle, living a little bit far from university but not too far, as other students. Anyways, just the fact that they look for a flat for you and save you that problem makes it worthy.
