UniversitÓ degli Studi di Padova

University of Padova, Via Riviera Tito Livio 6, 35122 Padova, Italy, Padua
3.92 / 5 based on 174 reviews.
Description:
The UniversitÓ degli Studi di Padova is the second oldest University in Italy and its traditional name is "il Bo", i.e. "the Ox".

Our relationships with other academic Institutions and Research Centres the whole world over, from America to China and Australia, are extremely active through exchange of professors, information and publications.

The University is in a phase of expansion and is looking at smaller towns nearby as sites for future initiatives (development of a polycentric University). Many of the students come daily to Padova from neighbouring villages and towns.

Italy is a fantastic country. The people, the food, the landscape, the arquitecture are absolutely great. I would highly recommend it for an Erasmus (or similar) experience and I will forever have a special feeling about this country. The whole country is worth visiting. Read Review

Night life is less lively than my home town (Porto). The most fun was meeting other Erasmus at their apartments or in town. Not many good clubs or bars though.

Was learning Italian a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Italian

My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
When i first arrived in Italy I was able to make people understand me even if the correct vocabulary wasn't being used but i did have some difficulty with the speed at which people spoke. After spending 10 months there i speak very well and i can understand mostly everything when people speak to me.

I wish I had known...
Not really. I felt well prepared for my experience and discovered so much more while there. I think that this is a really important aspect of the experience and of becoming more independent.
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!



During my experience abroad, I ...
Became familiar with another culture
KEY:
Happened all the time.
Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Traveled
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life
Advanced my studies/career
Personal recommendation:
I loved staying in Padova. To me, it was city life, but not an overwhelming city life like Venice, Milan, or Florence. I loved the feel to the city and the pace of life in Italy. It was unforgettable and would definitely choose studying there again!



FINAL COMMENTS

I suggest that you really get to know the country. I enjoyed traveling through Italy, more than throughout Europe. It really gave me a sense of what Italy's culture and people are all about. I definitely recommend to people who have ever thought of studying abroad to go for it. It is an amazing experience and is an incredible road of discovery!
