This is pretty much pot luck, the best advice that I can offer is to speak to any Italian student friends, or the boys at the Erasmus meeting point (they organise trips, and social events for the international students, aswell as helping you out with any queries if they can!), and ask them about the different courses, and what the teachers are like. Because although I hate to say it, you're mark depends on how much of a swot you are, and how nice the teacher feels like being. The exams are all oral, so therefore are not anonymous, fair and just. It's all exam politics here, giving the right impression, asking lots of questions in class and always sitting at the front to be seen to be attending. For some modules you will be expected to do exactly the same as the other Italian students, and for some you will have to do less than half the workload, though unfortunately for you, or fortunately if you are a lucky person, you will have to take a stab in the dark as much as we did! Just choose something that you think you will be interested in, and that you already have some knowledge about.
