The University of Pavia is in the centre of the city, the location is quite good because Pavia is a really nice city for students: it’s full of young people and easy to reach. Like other universities, it offers some valid courses, and some less interesting, but after all I’m satisfied with my choice.View more
So, my course is a specialized course that comes under Electronic Engineering. This course primarily focuses on Space communication and its domain. The professors here have not only helped gain insight theoretically but pragmatically too. I am almost on the verge of graduation and currently undergoing thesis work with one exam yet to take.View more
The University of Pavia offers so many courses to international students, but It doesn’t provide the facilities they need. At the minimum level, student housing is a huge problem. Even after three months from the start of the program, lots of students still don’t have a place to stay.View more
First of all, I would like to say that the University of Pavia contains lots of international students. However, I’m not sure if there is enough support for us. When I first came here I struggled so much with finding accommodation. After 3 weeks I managed to find one. But it affected a lot my efficiency in classes and I had to waste so much money. Other than that I think everything is satisfying, but keep in mind what I said if you’re an international student planning to settle in Pavia.View more
The program is vast and covers so many areas so that each student is allowed to discover their path over time, day by day. Teachers are incredibly qualified and are able to make you glimpse the possibilities you have for each area in the future; their passion for the work itself involves you in concrete and satisfying reality.View more
The University of Pavia is one of the most ancient universities in Italy and in the world. Pavia is a small town, perfect for the young students that leave their house for the first time. It is also incredibly cheap for students, offering a lot of opportunities for free time, like sports, bars, restaurants and local concerts. Professors are incredibly competent and put their students in the first place. The university offers a great variety of classes and degrees, even in the English language, and tutors are always available to help students outside of the scholastic time.
I started my journey at the University of Pavia seven years ago, when I started my bachelor’s in Biotechnology. I fell in love with the classes, because I could have touch with my hand the passion for Science and knowledge all around me. In the Biology and Biotechnology Department, professors love their job and can transmit this passion to their students. During my career, I had also the opportunity to travel abroad with Erasmus Traineeship, to expand my network and my experiences, like many of my colleagues could have done, thanks to the scholarships offered by the university.
I strongly recommend this University for all the young students that want to start their path in a competitive but friendly environment, without all the disadvantages that a bigger city could bring.
Unipv is very well organized and is based on a collegial system which is its unique characteristic. The services it offers are of the highest quality and always based on research and innovation. It is made to measure for the needs of the students, precisely because it is closely connected to the system of colleges, which makes it possible to expand the facilities on the university it can rely on, and this guarantees a unique cultural offer.View more
My undergraduate course is: Modern languages and cultures (business address).
The degree course allows you to study 3 languages of your choice and economic subjects.
The course promised well, but now that I finished the 3 years I would not recommend it. The university does not meet the needs of students, it was often not possible to follow some lessons due to different overlaps. University fees are high in relation to the services offered. Good facilities, good libraries. Most professors are prepared, but some of them create problems for most students.
The graduates in progress at the July 2019 session were 0. This shows how often professors hamper the students’ university path. I cannot recommend this degree course.
Wasn’t too thrilled to come back to my hometown for university, but it’s a very fun city when you’re a student. There are student discounts and opportunities around every corner, the nightlife is very lively on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and anything you can’t find in Pavia you’ll find 40 minutes away in Milan. When it comes to the teaching, some teachers are inspiring, some are provincial, some are as monstrous as Scylla and Charybdis, just like in any other university. The infrastructure is picturesque yet outdated, with the notable exception of the beautiful, newly-restored Biblioteca Petrarca. I study Lettere Moderne and it’s a good enough course; I am also in some very interesting extracurricular activities, but I had to dig a little to find them Tuition, accommodation and transportation are all very reasonably priced. Not a bad university, I would recommend it to all those who think Bologna to be a bit too intense and Milan a bit too expensive.View more
