The teaching method and training in my host university are really different from the university I come from. For example, the training here focus mainly on how to use what you've learned to solve practical problems while teachers focus on explaining theories in my home university.

Correction* I stayed at the University of Lucerne ! This is not on your list !
I would recommend it because it is a really small university which gives you a unique teaching experience in small groups. The university is also very flexible in choosing your program. Even though there is no ESN organization, the university provides a lot of activities for exchange student which are usually free. They are really helpfull everywhere and very flexible if you don't speak german. And of course Lucerne is one of the most beautiful cities in the world if you like nature :)
