Universitā 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 Universitā 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.

I wish I had known...
I was a little bit helpless because I didnīt know how university-live was but finally I discoverd that thereīs not that much difference between Italy and Germany
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 liked especially the town of Padova, the department of psychology was a little bit to big to make new friends there but the "Logopedia" was really small and it was much easier to get to know some italien people.



FINAL COMMENTS

If you need an accomodation, write soon to SASSA, the office for international relations because if you miss the final dates you have to look for a flat on your own and thatīs not really nice at Padova...
