The opportunity to study abroad is a huge and great opportunity to learn what other schools around the world are doing and to help you determine whether your current school is ahead or needs some improving. This opportunity has giving the change to test my Design skills and knowledge and to compare how prepare I am to face the professional world. I have been a positive experience so far. I'm really happy that the Accademia is an international school, so I get to interact with many student from all over the world not just Italians. Two things that have been a little disappointing is the fact that even thought the classes are supposed to be taught in English not all the professors know English or like to speak in English so it makes it a little difficult to understand everything. Also the schedule organization is not great, but everyone has been really helpful to make sure I don't miss anything.
