Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The school and the teachers and their fellow students.
It was good to have two different classes each day so that you weren't in the same room with the same teacher all day.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The Friday "class" was just watching a film with some brief discussion during (the teachers would pause the film) and after the film. Had I known that I would have signed up for classes Mon-Thurs only as I prefer proper classes.
Other comments: I did not go to any school social activities. Many of them were in the afternoon which clashed with classes but in any case most activities did not seem very interesting and I don't think they were very well attended. That said, it was easy to meet other students at school and in my shared apartment and make arrangements to go out in the evenings.
