B. Economics
Semester 1, 2015

Academic experience

I took International Economics, Development Economics, Economics of Globalisation, Corporate Finance and Sociology. To be honest I really enjoyed Finance and Sociology more than the others because the professors were very enthusiastic. It's different from UQ because study here in Italy is more technical and you have to be really devoted to study because there are 5 subjects. I had to overcome the language barriers that are still difficult but now I feel more confident and happy to have learned other language.

Personal experience

Pisa, Rome, learn about the cuisine and the fashion industry in Milan is something that I always remember.


I lived both on and off-campus. But its better to live with other students as you make friends more easily than living with older people.


Transport for students is 22euros a month
Food varies
Travel depends if you go on group or alone but on average is 25 euros a night.

Professional development and employability
