Course recommendations
In comparison to my home university I found the level a step lower. Taking the courses in Italian, however, compensated for this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Housing
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.

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.
