Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? The ERASMUS experience should be lived in community, with other foreign and native italian students so that we can make a deeper cultural exchange.
Personal comments:
It's very difficult to find a house in Genoa. There are no campus, the University doesn't get involved.. Because of this, the landlords get advantage of the needing situation of the students, specially ERASMUS.

ACADEMIC

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
There needs to be more information given from the home university on courses, as we had huge problems at the beginning of term as neither the home or host university appeared to be in coordination with one another.

Language difficulties
Social
KEY:

I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: Italian
Was learning Italian a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
How much did you improve your Italian?
My level before:
My level after:
Personal comments:
Italian language is not so difficult to read, because also Portuguese comes from Latin. To understand linstening was much more difficult and speaking was a mixture of words and gestures. Anyway, it turned out to be great learning a new language. It helped me a lot living with an italian person.

EXPENSES    
by Carla, Universidade de Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal
Law, Erasmus
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
Everything is more expensive in Italy than in Portugal, specially food and drink. And for telephone I spent more because of international calls.
Food, Travel, Nightlife, Overall, Telephone, Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
It's more difficult than I thought. Anyway, eating in restaurants is not a good idea. We have to pay a tax (different from one restaurant to another) just for being there, called "coperto". It's better to buy food and cook at home. Internet is very expensive in Internet points, and the time that University has internet available is about 5 hours per day: It doesn't satisfy the needs of every student.
