Academic
Course recommendations
Our university classes were taught at an independent center apart from the rest of the university, so this isolated us from the larger university.

Personal recommendation
If you are studying Psychology and your main goal in going there is for academic reasons, it may not be the right place. If you are looking for a balance between academic, social and a beautiful country, Italy is the best!

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.

Personal comments
The halls of residence where i stayed were fantastic. There was a large study room, computer room with free internet access, a games room, and a small gym. The only downfall was that the kitchen was rather small.
