Personal comments
Location was superb- within 2 mins walk of university. Accommodation was very basic - no kitchens, communal mixed-sex bathrooms that were not always clean; 5 showers shared among over 30 people. The university does have other and better equipped accommodation in other parts of the city further from the university. Security is quite strict and visitors are not generally permitted.

Personal comments
I came to Italy with an advanced knowledge of Italian grammar. I needed to practice speaking but didn't do that as much as I had hoped to do. I advise people who want to improve their speaking ability to take a class in Italian, or at least attend a class in Italian all semester. Also, take the crash course offered before the semester begins. It may not improve you're Italian (depending on the level that you're at already), but you will meet everybody in that class.

Course recommendations
If you are choosing to take courses in Italian then make sure that you interact with the other Italians from the word go because they are the best way to make sure you improve your italian and to ensure that you have understood everything in the class. Plus the longer you leave it the harder it becomes to approach them, they are unsure of how much Italian you know and are less forthcoming.

Final comments
The best semester ever. It is maybe not the best place to go if your main reason is academically. But of course it depends on your preferences. Have made friends from all over the world, and got to learn a new language and a new culture. Would love to do it again.

Course recommendations
Huge selection of courses available to international students. The list is quite limited if you don't want to study through Italian, but otherwise you can choose from ANY courses that the Italians take.

Personal comments
Oral exams can be ery daunting for foreign students. The Italians study courses differently to Irish students. Rather than learn what a course is about and gaining an understanding of it, they instead seem to prefer memorising books which is a bit pointless!

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).
