Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The level assessment is rather useless. People are placed mostly in the level they want to be, not the level they really should be in.
Other comments
If you are a proficient student the availability of the groups is very limited, I would choose a Higher Institution.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Bear in mind that, in summer, there are a lot of Spanish students and you are in the same class. therefore, you tend to speak Spanish. I tried to chat with non-Spanish speakers to avoid this problem, but it is difficult to avoid. One week, out of 10 students, 6 of them wee Spanish. It is difficult to work in groups and whenever you get stuck you speak Spanish.
