Hi! I am Izza, currently enrolled as an international student in the Masters degree at University of Padua. I demonstrate my stay here as challenging, fulfilling and rewarding. Sometimes it is difficult to manage social life with studies which makes it challenging but rewarding indeed.
I graduated from top ranked university of Pakistan and I was looking forward to get admission in a good ranked university which could help me to excel in my field. I came across university of Padua and it is one of the oldest universities of Italy and lies among top 300 universities of the world. I did research on ICT for internet and multimedia and found that my interest lied in Telecommunication Engineering. There were some fears I had at the time of taking this decision. I was questioning myself if it is good enough to go for it or not. I had fear of going to a new place, change of culture and academic system. Than I made up my mind to just give it a try. So here I am, i think this is one of the best decisions of my life to choose the University of Padua.
I found everyone really helping and kind here. Professors have really good attitude towards international students. I became friends with some Italians and international students within few days and they helped me to reach my full potential. I find everyday really interesting here as there are a lot of activities going on. I did not find it challenging to enjoy events because they were in English also which is a positive image toward international students.
Culture of Italy is really vast. It has really positive influence on me. It is a really beautiful country. There are many beautiful places for travelling too. I love the location of the department. It is just beside the river and this place is full of life. I spend a lot of time sitting there sometimes studying and sometimes just to relax. Padua is a worth living place, so calm and so peaceful. It makes me fall in love with this place more and more. It feels like home.
Being a female I always find myself enjoying and living without any social pressure. I like to suggest this university to international students because I think this is the most suitable university in terms of academics and social life. I didn't find myself stuck during my one year of stay in UNIPD and that makes it a best choice.
