I chose the University of Bologna because it is the oldest in the world and has a great history. Here, I found excellent teachers and a welcoming community. It truly was a precious experience.
Yibin Zhou, Pedagogy - Science of Education Graduate Student, China
I found studying at the University of Bologna very satisfying. There are plenty of opportunities to learn from professors and the direct training experience on clinical rotations. I think this experience will lead me to new paths in Europe or anywhere else in the world.
Maleyko Mohamed Weis, Medicine, Djibouti
I chose Unibo for many reasons. First, it is one of the oldest universities in Europe, which, to me, is very exciting. Second, the facilities available for students are perfect and, third, I found the programme itself quite appealing. Indeed, it had a bunch of mandatory subjects that I really liked, and the electives were also extremely interesting for me. Finally, the city has a lot to offer in terms of museums, cultural activities, festivals, and so on, I think it’s wonderful.
