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.

I had an amazing experience because of the beauty of Italy. I had an amazing time traveling and learning the culture. My advice would be to travel around Italy as much as possible and to meet as many Italians as possible. Read Review

FINAL COMMENTS

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.
