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 - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? It is a good way to live on with other international students on your own, in another country. It makes for a more immersive experience, just blending right int to the culture
Personal comments:
There were not many choices for me going to study at Bocconi, in finding accomodations. I showed up at the university for language class, staying in a hotel for two weeks while I was figuring out where to live. A little aggravating, but a great learning experience.

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 interact with the local community without much university involvement
Activities, Travel: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Nightlife: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Can't beat a pizza from Da Willy's. For a facny night out in the disco's there's La Banque, near to Duomo. For a mad night out there's Palo Alto on a Tuesday night where SEN have the exchange nights out. The infamous SEN tram party is a must if there's one organised whilst you're there. On a clear day you must go to the top of Duomo. And of course a few drinks or a meal in the Brera on a Saturday night.

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
In comparison to my home university I found the level a step lower. Taking the courses in Italian, however, compensated for this.

My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Personal comments:
I found the way of examination quite unprofessional in comparison to my home university. Multiple choice and orals were quite subjective versus the objective and anonymous system I am used to.

Language difficulties
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Administrative / Institutional
Language of instruction: English
Local language was: Different than language of instruction.
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
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: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
I did not take Italian courses at Bocconi however I did take 2 other courses offerred by the IES program (Italian Politics and Advanced Italian Language) in Italian and these truly helped in advancing my schools. However, interacting with Italians on a daily basis was what truly helped me feel comfortable and also led me to reach a very proficient level.

The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't want/need to work
Personal spending habits:
The prices of international (non-Italian) food are higher here. Housing is much much more expensive here, and I live with my parents at home anyway.
Overall, Food, Housing: was more expensive than at home.
Nightlife, Telephone: was the same price as at home.
Travel: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
Open a bank account and transfer the money you think you'll need at the beginning. This will save you the costs of taking money out at the atm, which only lets you take out 250euro per atm machine per day.

Milan is great fun so make sure you meet people from outside the uni- that helps you to learn the language too!
