The University of Bologna is a world-class university located in one of Italy’s most beautiful and vibrant cities. During my 2-year master’s degree I enjoyed interesting and stimulating classes from professors with impressive CVs. The structure of the university is a little outdated, but it’s ancient buildings and history-filled corridors and classrooms only add to the university’s mystique. Logistically, the university is not very organized, but it is understandable as it has a very large number of students. The accommodation system could be far better. Places are few and the cost of rooms and appartments in Bologna is VERY high.View more
I am attending the first year of communication sciences. The teachers are open to discussion and resolution of any problems relating to the student; they hope to maintain a relaxed and dialogue atmosphere. In the first year, the course of study foresees a “general smattering” of what will be the subjects dealt with in the future, then specializing during the second and third year. The city of Bologna offers many opportunities for off-site students.View more
The university offers a great selection of courses in English and at the same time, you can attend Italian language courses for free. There is a range of career opportunities after graduation and some assistance from er.go.
Scholarship and several award opportunities are present.
Location (Campus di Rimini) plays a huge role in students’ life. You never get bored in this sunny and full of fun activities city!
The only negative part would be the examination system when after 1st attempt you have to wait for quite a long time to give it another try. Also, the facilities like study rooms or libraries should be improved. Quite often you cant find a place to study at.
After I started ar this university my life has changed completely. University of Bologna gives you freedom and an infinite amount of possibilities for your education and future career. As a tourism student in UNIBO, I had a chance to travel and gain knowledge of the history of Italy which I like the most about this university. I’m thankful to University of Bologna that they have created this chance for me to have the adventure of my life as a student.View more

The University of Bologna is the oldest in the world and still nowadays maintains its leadership in the national and international academic landscape.View more
I made my erasmus at università degli studi di Bologna (UNIBO) two years ago. I was studying law subjects and all the professors were so willing to help the international students and the difficulties that we had. On the other side, the vast majority of faculties have an awesome history and the architecture is really impressive, it seems like a museum !View more
I think that the University of Bologna is one of the best Italian universities and one of the most important academic centers in Europe. Being the oldest university of the occidental world, more than 900 years of experience have certainly served to let it offer excellence in a lot of different fields. It is furthermore able to fully interweave tradition and modernity. In my opinion as a student, the professors are quite competent and have the ability to transmit their passion for the subject. It also offers a lot of facilities such as financial aid for the students that cannot afford to pay for rent and tax. The conditions of the student dormitories are quite good, the city is well connected to the faculties, warm and hospitable. Bologna is a multicultural city, full of students from the entire world, which makes the city dynamic and exciting. I am really happy to have had the ability to study at this university.View more
I state that I have no idea what the other universities are in Italy, but for the direction of studies that I do (Viticulture and Enology in Cesena) even if they are only in the first year it seems structured quite well. The teachers up until now are very well prepared, they explain very well and are very available in case we students have difficulties. Then the beauty of the venue is that we are relatively few (430) and therefore we have 2/3 green areas where you can rest in the breaks and is also very well equipped and well organized both with laboratories and schedulesView more
As a title, it was one of the best university computer infrastructures I had the pleasure of consulting. The availability of almost all information is simple and immediate. As well as everything that goes around the matriculation. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of the schedules. See the schedules of their courses (which often overlap) is nothing short of a nightmare.View more
UNIBO (University of Bologna) is one of the most ancient and known in Europe. It has centuries of highly qualified professors, excellent study programmes and experience in research and training.
My study course involved foreign languages (Russian and French), both of which very well taught, with practice in classes and support in case of need.
Th course also included the study of foreign literature, so I studied French literature and Russian literature, and both of them got me involved very much.
The teachers often involved the students in academical activities, such as seminars, internships, contests and so on.
As for the support services, they were excellent. I had all my problems resolved in no time.
One really great thing about UNIBO is the high scholarship you get if you have economic issues, it really allows you to pay the rent and to live in a city which is not very cheap. Of course, in order to get the scholarship, you should pass all of the exams required.
One negative aspect was the building in which I had most of my classes, which was small and often not prepared for many students. So I would suggest finding better alternatives.
Bologna is one of the most lively and active cities in which a foreign or Italian student can study, it’s multicultural, people are friendly and very open to new cultures. I definitely recommend studying in Bologna!
