Aims: To examine changes in alcohol intake and consequences in Italian students studying abroad. Methods: Italian exchange students planning to study abroad were invited to report on their drinking and alcohol-related negative consequences before and after their time abroad. Results: After excluding those who abstained throughout, data on 121 students were analysed and showed that they tended to consume more alcohol and experience more alcohol-related negative consequences compared to their pre-departure levels. Conclusion: The added alcohol risk of study abroad for Italian students merits consideration of possible opportunities for intervention.
