Overall
C'est une bonne universitÚ qui m'a permis de m'intÚgrer. Les cours sont intÚressants, mŕme si j'aurai souhaitÚ avoir plus de pratique, je ne regrette pas d'ŕtre ici, et d'avoir eu la possibilitÚ d'Útudier avec des professeurs super disponibles pour des explications hors les heures de cours... Et les compagnes de cours la plus part des temps disponible aux Úchanges.

Personal spending habits
being new to an area means you want to discover new places and try new things, which results in spending more, it was worth it though, it's all part of learning the culture.

Personal comments
cost saving tips for train travel, use www.trenok.it, for travelling to other countries use ryanair, booking enough in advance can mean amazing savings (I went to Sardinia for 20 euros from Pisa!). Go to restaurants and try their local foods, its a great way of learning new words and taking in a bit of culture too, eating out is not as pricey as the UK either, so, sometimes it's cheaper to eat out than go to the supermarket and cook yourself!

Course recommendations
Fantastic but very demanding Italian literature and linguistic courses! Prof. Massimo Fanfani (linguistics) is great speaks slowly and is very helpful! Avoid English literature classes with a certain Pugliati - dreadful pronunciation and unfair! Talk to your teachers - they are very helpful and definitely want to pass you! Classes last the whole year - try to take mid-term exams whenever possible.

Personal comments
The libraries are a desaster! There are very little computers on the campus. (Try Via Alfani - for law students only but open till 11 p.m.). And please pleas get an air condition - the heat in summer kills you!

Course recommendations
It was VERY different from the American University system, but this is one of the things that made me learn so much. You make of it what you can, and if you chose not to interact with teachers and other students, then you certainly aren't encouraged to. If you do chose to, however, you benefit. In these courses I did learn an incredible amount about the subject matter, which was very gratifying.

I was frustrated with Georgetown because they would only give me credits for certain courses, and our courseload in the spring was greater than a normal Italian studen't courseload.

Personal comments
The commission paid to an 'agency' when we found a place to rent. It was equal to one month's rent. Phonecalls home were okay because I used a Telecard linked to my home phone bill. Internet access wasn't too bad especially if you bought a few hours all at once. Get a 'biglietto chilometrico' for train travel. MUCH cheaper than buying tickets for every trip, if you don't mind normal (ie not Eurostar) trains.
