Personal assessment
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? More independency and possibilities to have your own place where to invite friends.
Personal comments:
There are too many students in this university, so the housing system through the university is complicated. I personally did not find anything through the university system, what is more, I found it quite chaotic. If you are to use it you should have a look in advance and make sure you are staying for a reasonable amount of time (one year better than just a term).

Personal social experience
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
Did not get involved.
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Activities, Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Personal comments:
The Naviglio area is great in summer. Exchange students have regular, cheap places to go (such as Palo Alto0, but you get bored after a couple of months. It's worthwhile to go to other places as well. I really liked a small Cuban bar (good drinks, great atmosphere), I have forgotten the name but I thin it was on the street between Bocconi and Naviglio, from Bestrice d'Este to Piaggio Marzo XIV or something.

Language difficulties
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Administrative / Institutional
Language of instruction: Italian
Was learning Italian a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Italian
How much did you improve your Italian?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
Having spent alot of time in the South of Italy and therefore having a Southern accent when speaing Italian made a good talking point with alot of Italians who, at first, found it quite difficult to distinguish where I was from. I was lucky as many of the exchange students at Bocconi do not speak Italian and follow courses in English, this was the only difficulty I found as I am trying to improve my Italian.

Other sources of funding:
Work opportunities:
I worked during my study abroad experience
Personal spending habits:
Euro is weaker than pound, Italy is poorer than the UK and price levels reflect that.
Travel, Telephone, Food, Overall, Housing, Nightlife: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
Bank loan hiccups from Bocconi scheme. If you have friends with cars, buy food from out of town hypermarkets. Also, accomodation is really expensive if you're easily lured by the convenience of Bocconi housing ads - finding housing in secondamano will be cheaper, although it may feel more isolated.

Important to choosing this university...

Very Important.
Not really important.
Campus life
Party / people
Weather / Location
I wish I had known...
The winter in Milan is actually cold and rainy... I expected more sun and warm weather.
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!

During my experience abroad, I ...
Became familiar with another culture
Happened all the time.
Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
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:
Improve the administrative structure and the computer facilities. Everything just takes too much time!


Make sure you have time to travel all over Italy, especially down to the southern part of the country. Skiing in the Alps isn't a bad idea either.
