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.
