Just start on time with arranging everything, especially the accommodation. Don't worry too much about being on your own because in no time you will feel at home and have a lot of friends. The level of the courses was rather 'low', in my home country the courses are more difficult and you have to do a lot (tasks, presentations, exams,..).
