Personal recommendation
You make your own fun! It takes the more inventive ones among us to have a really good time out here. Perugia is small, and does get monotenous after a year, but this is Italy, and this place is pretty big and modernised as far as it's smaller cities go. The beauty of it is that there are enough things to do without having to trip over tourists every day, and people here still speak Italian to you. as you will notice, especially if you are British like me, when you go to places like Rome, Florence, Verona etc that the locals are more exposed to foreigners and so it is a mission to ever get to practise your Italian!

I would totally recommend studying out here. You have the advantage of being able to study the Italian language at the most prestigious foreigner's uni in Italy. You are a 2/3 hour train ride from the capital. There is a very lively student population and you won't ever know what it means to 'hang out on the steps' unless you come here!!

Course recommendations
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.

Here it is the students that do the chasing. If you need something then ask, and keep asking until you are blue in the face! Be prepared to wait until you can't feel your legs anymore, and never let them put you down, you have just as much of a right to be there and to be seen to as quickly and as efficiently as everyone else- just keep reminding yourself of that!! As I said before, be clever. Know your teachers! and be honest about your ability and what would be a reasonable compromise.

Overall
University started out as something I HAD to do. It was the normal thing to do after graduating from high school. I picked engineering because my favorite subjects had always been math, physics and anything scientific. I got through my first three years (bachelor degree) not really convinced, but I did finish and in time. Then something changed before going forward with my Master of Science. I wanted to be the best and I was curious and wanted to learn everything. And that's what I did. I finished with top grades, youngest graduate and in time.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I'd like to live in an apartment shared with other students (as I did when I was in Italy) for the great opportunity to live with people of different countries

Personal comments
There are many foreign students in the city and I understand that for the University it would be rather difficult to find lodgement for everybody. I found my first accomodation in internet, it seemed OK but once I was there the appartment was further than I had expected from University, indeed it was in a village some kilometres far from the ciy. The flat was pretty nice and big and I was lucky with my flatmates but I long for a flat in the center of the town. Finally I moved on May with 2 friends to a smaller old apparment in the centre of the town and I could enjoy living in the storic centre of a beautiful medieval city!

I hardly had coffee before I went to Italy... but il cappuccinno bewitched me! My favourite cafes: Il Morlacchi (the best cappuccino in a chic cafe) and Il Blitz (a wide variety of tea in a cosy place). At night I used to go to Lo Zoologico (foreigners and italians enjoying music from the sixties!) and to different pubs where were organized spanish, greek, german parties (or whatever nationality represented in the city!) Perugia is a university town but is also a chocolate town. In October-November you can't miss the Eurochocolate (an open market where the only product to buy is chocolate). In July it's time for music: The Umbria Jazz Festival (the best musicians playing, in the streets of a city where, at least for 2 weeks, the rythm which leads its life is jazz)

If you have any doubt always ask someone.And don't trust the prices at shops - they're often made for tourists
