I choose UniTo because of the knowledgeable academic staff”. – Fatemeh

I could have pursued a Master’s degree in my hometown, but I thought an international experience could be a good idea in terms of experience and CV.” – Paula

After enrolling in a Joint Master’s Program, Economic Policies in the Age of Globalization, Anna shares Erasmus Mundus experience:

The courses are taught by successful academics with extensive experience in international cooperation and development. Plus, the University of Turin has a lot of international exchange programs, and as such an academic environment is very culturally diverse.

Concerning the admissions process and the support received from the University, students’ response was unanimous: the staff at UniTo was very helpful and knowledgeable. In Philipp’s experience “ the admissions process was easy and organized by competent staff members”. While Masiha says, “the process was great! The professors and staff were kind, supportive, and available. I’ll never forget how well they managed everything when we had network connection and technical issues. 

Furthermore, studying abroad also means changing cities, adapting to new lifestyles, and meeting new people, and Turin has a lot to offer!

Torino is all a student can ask for. Nightlife, affordable lifestyle, history, and modernity, friendly environment” – Fatemeh.

Turin has hosted major international events such as the Winter Olympics, Eurovision Song Contest, and Nitto ATP Finals, attracting many national and international tourists. 

In Andrey’s words “ Turin is a great city to live and study in. I have made many new friends and enjoyed learning Italian culture and language. We were assigned buddies from AEGEE Torino who were very helpful in navigating daily life in Turin.”

We’ve put ourselves in your shoes and asked the students to share some advice with anyone who is currently considering studying abroad.
