Universidad de Deusto, Bilbao, Spain


“The second semester at the university of Deusto was a very positive experience. The teaching staff was very involved in the Euroculture program, but also creative in its way of teaching and especially available and responding to e-mails. The university offers a pleasant international environment and a large number of student facilities: sport and other artistic facilities, accommodation but also Spanish courses and excellent library services which made my stay enjoyable and stress-free”
