As I mentioned before, if you can get out there a bit earlier to find accomodation then it'll be worth it, as you may end up having to share a room or spend loads of money on rent. You'll make your friends in the first few weeks so make sure you attend all the social events. Any problems, go to the ASE office as they'll be more than willing to help. Read Review

HOUSING    
by Lucy, University of Leeds, Leeds, United Kingdom
Language, Erasmus
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Freedom to come and go as please was a major plus point. One aspect I would change, however, would be to share with Italian students to necessitate more regular language practice.
Personal comments:
The housing agency that the Erasmus Student Association at Verona University had links with were unreliable and have so far failed to return any of the huge deposit we left at the start of the year. They are called "For Sale" and are best avoided! The appartment was basic in every way but we enjoyed the year due to it's location 2 minutes walk from the uni and just 5 minutes from the city centre. Also became close friends with the Italian, Spanish, Irish and other British Erasmus students living in the same block.

STUDENT LIFE    
by Lucy, University of Leeds, Leeds, United Kingdom
Language, Erasmus
Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Activities, Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Camelot: English/Irish pub which definitely doesn't remind you of either of those countries! Cool music, wicked atmosphere. Nirvana: just off from Piazza Bra, left off Via Porta Nuova (down some steps). Try a "Black out" and you won't remember a thing... Highlander: rubbish pub but only place you can get anything resembling a fry-up for nursing the hangover you'll get after Camelot & Nirvana. Grace: cheeeesy nightclub. Campus: student central. Nice cheap, strong drinks. Veccia Veronetta:Just don't use the toilet there. Ever. Tropico Latino: The cocktails are amazing and lots of Erasmus people, mainly German, went there on Mondays. Bottega (Vino): Expensive restaurant with extremely posh wines and snotty waiters. Very, very nice indeed. Campodoglio: Big bar off Piazza Erbe which also has amazing cocktails. Go for a quiet drink. Pomod'oro: Pizzeria/restaurant which had a cool atmosphere and lush pizzas, good for bringing large groups.

ACADEMIC

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
if you are lucky, you can find a prof who appreciates having erasmus students in his/her course. as a result they treat you good during the exams! so don't be shy and present yourself to your prof right at the beginning. then he knows that your italian isn't that perfect, which avoids embarrassing questions during the course.



My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
KEY:
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Overall
Personal comments:
it was quite unusual for me having an oral exam with 20 other students listening behind my back, but this is the italian system. i didn't like the library, because you don't have direct access to the books, you have to order them.

It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: Italian
Was learning Italian a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Italian
How much did you improve your Italian?
My level before: Everyday knowledge (shopping, directions, etc.)
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
italians really help to learn the language! if you ask they mainly try to speak slowlier and without dialect. as i also spent 8 months in france, where the french weren't that helpfull, i really appreciated that point. however, if there are any problems with the administration etc., you can always ask somebody of ase for help, they speak english, spanish aso.

EXPENSES    
by Lucy, University of Leeds, Leeds, United Kingdom
Language, Erasmus
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
Government assistance
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I worked, but it was illegal/cash in hand work
Personal spending habits:
Ate out very often indeed: eating out much cheaper than at home so you do it more, so you spend a lot. Didn't buy a mobile phone because even basic models were too expensive. However, would have been beneficial for being more integrated with other Erasmus students... Accomodation SHOULD have been cheaper in Italy but we were unlucky. Most students were paying half what we paid. Drinks weren't much cheaper than home, same with clubs but going out most nights because of the Erasmus life style is very expensive. Italy is an amazing country and spending extra on travelling and seeing as much as possible had to be done. However, train travel costs about a third of the price of that in Britain! Overall, Italy is amazingly good value for a British person but living there for nine months and enjoying all of the above to excess means it is far more expensive than being a student in England.
Overall, Travel, Nightlife, Food: was more expensive than at home.
Housing, Telephone: was the same price as at home.
Personal comments:
Trains were unbelievably cheap. Big shock getting back to English prices... Accomodation wise, try to get bills included and if you don't mind pot luck with who the uni make you share a room with, go into student accomodation, you'll speak more Italian AND it's ridiculously cheap.

Personal recommendation:
Some of my friends had their placement at other universities in Italy and although they had a reasonably good time, they weren't totally satisfied. I however, had an amazing time and I honestly can't think of a bad thing to say about the year I spent in Verona. This was all thanks to the ASE group who made everyone feel welcome and they really looked after us. Had it not been for them, my experience would have been totally different and could have turned out like that of my friends. A big thanks to the ASE in Verona who gave us all a fantastic year that we'll never forget.



FINAL COMMENTS

As I mentioned before, if you can get out there a bit earlier to find accomodation then it'll be worth it, as you may end up having to share a room or spend loads of money on rent. You'll make your friends in the first few weeks so make sure you attend all the social events. Any problems, go to the ASE office as they'll be more than willing to help.
