You should be ready to work much on your own. Teaching is mainly theoretical

Final comments
I must say that I preferred life and friends outside the University than in the University. Also, the people from Torino are usually cold towards strangers, in fact most of my friends were another international students or people from Southern Italy.

Overall
UNITO is a university located in Italy in the region of Piedmont. I wouldn’t say that is the best in Italy, but I am sure it will be very soon. It is, in fact, improving its study programme, expanding the international exchanges through the Erasmus and Overseas programmes. It also involves students in various activities, such as seminars concerning many different topics, and usually contemporary ones.
In Turin I study foreign languages, it is not one of the best faculties of the University and it has so much to improve, starting from the course programme. The teachers are well prepared, but I believe that the programme doesn’t value their preparation. I think that are some useless courses that should be dropped and some other definitely to be improved. For example, students should have the possibility to choose more optional courses and not only a few of them.
I study Japanese and English and although Japanese is a very tough language I think that many exchange programmes helped me a lot to improve it. But the exam modality should be changed, we don’t have the preparation for an exam this hard.
The organisational system works pretty well, some problems have occurred but they were easily resolved.
In general I think I would recommend it. It has many pros.

USAC Torino program helped find the apartment for me and other roommates -- near SAA school where all classes were held , good size, furnished, decent rent price and internet and come utilities included, not bad becuase you control how much utilities you consume and pay...(heat, light, water)
