When and how did course registration take place? Are there any restrictions? Possibilities of making changes?:
po absolvovaní prvých hodín je možnosť meniť predmety po dobu 1 mesiaca (changes to LA), registrácia prebieha tak, že napíšete email vedúcemu kurzu a následne pošlete changes to LA koordinátorke, kurzy sa oba semestre menili, pretože niektoré sa nevyučovali a niektoré sa prekrývali (vyučovanie prebieha najmä popoludní)

yes

Quality of teaching in comparison with home school:
nižšia, ale záleží od kurzov, niektorí vyučujúci sú expertmi na danú problematiku a dali si záležať na prednáškach a spôsobe hodnotenia, niektoré kurzy boli jednoduché a prístup učiteľov vágny

prezentácie a vlastné dohľadávanie informácií

How and how far ahead should accommodation be organised?:
napísať koordinátorke, písala som už pred letom
z kolejí veľká vzdialenosť na univerzitu, kvôli zápcham niekedy aj hodinu, preto lepšie vybaviť si bývanie na byte bližšie k centru
