Chiara Bartolotti - BA English Literature

chiara The university provides the students with all the possible benefits. Everything is well organised and the campuses are really cool also they are situated in a beautiful environment. The lecturers are also very good and have so much knowledge about the subject. They are also really motivated and pleased to teach and the university staff always offers so much help. It seems that the university cares about our education as well as our happiness.

I attended the Welcome Week and I can say it was amazing. It was also really helpful for the international students, to get to know each other’s doing exciting activities. For me, it is fundamental for every international student. We come from a different country, different culture, even different way of study (maybe), so one week is necessary to understand the first changes and to begin a sort of “new life” in a new environment.
