Personal spending habits
Food was cheaper, I barely used the phone (we had a cell-phone that was provided by the landlord for everyone in the house and it had a card, when the card expired, we could still receive call, I bought phone cards from time to time in case I needed to call friends or family.

Personal comments
Shop at no-brand grocery stores (I had one next to my appartment) and you'll save a lot. More money for partying *lol* I didn't find that second-hand text books were easily available so... that's going to be a big chunk of your monthly budget when you have to buy them.

Course recommendations
As far as the quality of the classes I attended, I don't have any doubts (one of my thesis juror back in Belgium actually knew one of my teacher in Italy, a Harvard Fellow). I guess everybody knows the feeling of being part of the Erasmus gang. Although we were only 4-5 students in International Relations, I hardly had contacts with the local students and I regret it. The few locals students i befriended though became really good friends.

Personal comments
I chose 4 classes (2 for each semesters) and passed exams in february and June. I was awarded the same marks despite how poor I fared on 2 exams. I'm not going to complain but it didn't reflect my real abilities. I suspect teachers had a guideline abour assessing Erasmus. Teachers are very approachable (it's a small faculty) and did every thing they could to make things easier, giving you advice, invinting you to conferences, etc.

Overall
I wish I had known...
I had no bad surprises at all... except that I thought I'd interact more with my host-university students, I was a little disappointed about that. To compemsate, my flatmate was the best and I met some amazing people, some of whom I am still in contact with today.

Personal recommendation
Actually, I had chosen LLUIS has a first choice but was awarded Roma 3 and I didn't regret it at all. Roma 3's Political science faculty still hasn't been moved to the main campus (it opened after I left) so, it still feels like a small university. You will have no problems getting lost to find your classroom or visit the teacher to ask questions, etc.

On our week of arrival, the Roma 3 Erasmus association, e3, had organized a whole wewk of activities! Amongst them, a visit to Ostia Antica and party every nights! I was exhausted after that week I had to slow down for a couple of month as I was getting settled. Bar San Callisto in Trastever is the best. Also the bars on Campo de' Fiori... I have fond memories. As soon as the spring weather was warm enough, we would take the train to Ostia every week-end to spend the day at the sea!

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I am "too old" to live on campus, I love my independence and I love living in the city instead of the "campus ghetto".

Personal comments
I had the biggest and most beautiful appartment I have ever had... marble floor everywhere in a nice appartment complex in the Potuense neighbourhood. Although I had to share my room with my flatmate (which is quite common in Italy apparently), everything was more than I expected. Hopefully, we got along quite well.For the rent I paid (very little), it couldn't be beat! We even had a washing machine! Conviently located to reach the University but far from the city center.
