Why did you choose to go to Zamora, España?

When I was looking for some photos of this place, it looked so beautiful. Also Zamora is smaller than Madrid (for example) and that's why is also cheaper - it's very important for students.

How long is the scholarship? How much money do you receive to help you with living costs?

It depends from home-school. My school in Poland was paying me 300€/month. But it wasn't sufficient, I had to have my own money also.


What is the student lifestyle like in Zamora?

Lifestyle in Zamora is like lifestyle in other cities and countries I think.

School is ending about 2-3 p. m., then is siesta (free time for sleeping and resting) and they go out for parties about midnight. In Zamora Thursday was the day of parties.

But almost every day they are going out for supper with friends, it's also very nice and relaxing.

Would you recommend the city and the University of Zamora to other students?

I was studying in EASD de Zamora and with full responsibility I recommend that school to other students.


What is the food like?

Very tasty. Since my erasmus I love tradicional spanish tortilla with small cup of coffee. It was the best lunch I've ever had.

I recommend to try all of tradicional dishes, especially 'patatas bravas' or 'pinchos morunos', soooo tasty!



Did it cost you to find your accommodation in Zamora?

It was very hard to find an accommodation. During the first week, I lived in hostel, while still looking for a flat. My friend and I eventually found a flat near the school. Unfortunetly it costed 450€/month + bills for water and electricity; so it was around 500-550€/month/2 person, so about 250-300€/month for me.

How much does it cost to live in Zamora?

Except 250-300€/month for flat, about 50€/week for food shopping (general only basic products). So it's a lot, but still cheaper than in Mardid or Barcelona.


Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

at my school there wasn't language courses, that's why I dah to go to language school ("escuela de idiomas")

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Zamora from your city?

I took a plane from Warsaw do Mardid (4 hours) and then a bus from Mardid to Zamora (3 hours).


Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Zamora?

to Malaspina Bar for drinking and talking with friends.

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Zamora?

Bar Ronda, Lobos.

Is there any other advice that you could give to students going to Zamora in the future?

It's good to know spanish language.
