Course recommendations
If you go to Milan, you should not go for the academic attractiveness of the university, the level and way of teaching is sometimes very frustrating as the level is low and interaction with teachers is very difficult.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Although the first experience with the appartements was not perfect I still will prefer to look for an appartment instead of living in one of the rooms which are provided by the university. I consider pivacy and space as very impaortant. I do have the learning experience as I know now which areas I would like to live in Milan and know more people so it will be easier to find something which suits me.

Personal comments
What I have heard from the other students who did live in the accomodations of the university is that they lack the privacy and space. There is no possibility to cook in your own space and you cannot have any guests staying the night. The advantage is that someone cleans your room.
