Overall
I wish I had known...
That Arezzo is actually quite small and does not have the same student life as the main part of Siena University in Siena.

Personal recommendation
I personally would have prefered a larger University with more going on. If you quite like a quiet life and are there to study lots rather than meet people and speak the language, then it is probably a good place to go.

Final comments
Try and live with local students, and when you go to lectures do not sit with other English students, but start speaking to the locals around you, as you really have to be confident and approach them to make friends. Once you do so, your stay there will be so much more fun! Arezzo is a great place to travel from, as its well situated in the middle of Tuscany. Definitely worth going to is Cinque Terra (although stay in La Spezia, as it is much cheaper)and Cortona (great views).

Siena is brilliantly located so it is very easy to travel around Italy form there. Although it is an extremely accomodating city it is also quite small so if you're a person that gets bored easily choose to go to a bigger City with more activity. It did get a bit dull throughout the winter but the summer was brilliant. I've yet to see a more breathtaking Piazza and could just spend hours there sitting in it.

What life is like in Siena

Overall
It is a small interesting town innthe toscani region of italy, closer to florence and empoli. Siena is a tourist area where you meet people from all walks of life. Life is very simple and relaxing, which makes school life here less stressful. 
  The education system is very good. It helps you to always give out your best, as the teachers are ever ready to assist any student.
