The University of Trento – the first expression

After spending an amazing year at Aalto University, Finland the first impression of an Italian University has been full of mixed feelings.

Things like having private spaces available for students working on a project is something that doesn’t exist. This is a challenge. Now, students normally go to one of the big rooms available to us and whisper. 

The relationship between students and professors feels, in general, a bit stiff. The hierarchy between the two is notable. As a person born in Sweden, Scandinavia it for sure is something I am not used to. Luckily, the nature of the courses I am taking is favouring a more Scandinavian approach to teaching, which has made the adaption to the system easier.

Overall, life at UNITN is good.

Take care, enjoy the challenges and have some fun!
