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

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.

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).

You will love the Toscana: Florence, Il Chianti etc. From Siena it is one hour to the sea Sicily is great and it costs only about 100.000 L. by train; Three hours to Rome (!) by bus; six hours to Naples. By the way: Excellent bus services.

Overall
University of Siena has one of the most industry relevant courses that combine theory and practice to make learning a fun. One essential aspect of the university is that the teaching staff are made up of internationally acclaimed professors who are top notch both in teaching and research. One thing that is so amazing about the university of Siena is that the student body is internationally oriented with students from every continent of the world meaning there is cultural diversity in the university of Siena. Being located in a historical city if Siena, the campus of the university is the entire city itself. The university of Siena stands out from the rest as campus life is engaging, entertaining  and enthusiastic with several students support services that make students life lively.

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.
