bocconi is known as top university - people there accordingly can be snobbish; on the other hand i could not really detect a difference in course quality to my home university

at first glance milan might appear greyish and unfriendly. in fact, i found it much different from other italian cities i had been to earlier (florence, rome, . . .). however, you will find out that milan, besides being noisy and stressful can be an extremely interesting place to live. many interesting places are near - i loved the ligurian cost with places like camogli, santa margherita or noli. there is such a lot of beautiful and interesting places in italy, try to see as much of them as possible!

Do not expect a radical academic progress but enjoy the social and cultural aspect of the exchange period :)

Milan is a perfect transport hub for travelling and the transport is quite cheap. In Italy you will find too many things to see everywhere :) Be ready for the "Italian" culture as soon as you get used to their different way of thinking the stay in Italy turns to be perfect!

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.

The courses are excellent and there is a lot of variety so you'll be able to study lots of subjects you wouldn't necessary have at home.

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

Bocconi has a great exchange course. The International office are fantastic, the Student Exchange Network are too. Courses are offered in English and Italian, some you can follow in Italian then take the final exma in English if you wish.

If you intend to study english courses, check out the booklist before you go, beacuse if you have room in your suitcase you could save yourself alot of money than buying the imported books out there. Also always make sure when travelling on the trains that you don't have to prebook your seats, I got on a train to Lake Como and didn't realise you had to book and was fined!

If you are at least intermediate in Italian you will have a lot more courses to choose from and your stay will be much more fun.

Milano is situated close to snowy mountains as well as sunny beaches. And not to forget the cultural heritage. Use your weekends to travel!!
