Personal comments:
The university didn't give us any information about accomodation, only that it was impossible to rent something through the university...I had to look for something through a house rental agency... I won't give any comment about the prices they ask...

Important to choosing this university...
Academic reasons
KEY:
Very Important.
Important.
Not really important.
Unimportant.
Culture
Costs
Activities
Campus life
Party / people
Weather / Location
I wish I had known...
That its almost impossible to pay with a card in smaller shops. Easier to deal with cash.
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!



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:
I loved it, but you should definitely know that most of the things, problems in the university you have to solve by yourself. Sometimes, there were changes in the schedule of the courses, and no notification about it. But professors are really friendly, and helpful.



FINAL COMMENTS

It was really a great experience! If you decide to go, don┤t interact only with other Erasmus people, but try to get to know the local students as well. That way instead of improving your english you will learn italian ;) And you have the chance to get to know the Real Italy!
