Personal assessment

Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.

Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? The experience is very positive. Not only you get involved within the local culture, but also your language level (in my case italian) benefits so much.
Personal comments:
The university offered some help in trying to find a place in one of the few residences in Florence. Fortunately I found my own and I didn't use its help.

KEY:
Very Important.
Important.
Not really important.
Unimportant.

Campus life
Party / people
Weather / Location
I wish I had known...
Make sure you have a student visa and if possible, that the Uni. is aware of the exchange program with your university. It would have helped to have a contact person at the university.
In my opinion:
Most people loved it.



During my experience abroad, I ...
Became familiar with another culture
KEY:
Happened all the time.
Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Traveled
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life
Advanced my studies/career
Personal recommendation:
Very strongly, but mainly for the experience of living in Florence, not for the university 'spirit'. It's a multi-campus place so there's no real central meeting ground within the uni.



FINAL COMMENTS

See as much of Italy as you can while you're there. See if you can work your timetable so you have a day or so off a week to do this.
