Why did you choose to go to Trento, Italy?

I chose Trento because I like Italy and it's been the best partner uni from my home University (Passau, Germany).


How long is the scholarship? How much money do you receive to help you with living costs?

From September to July. I receive payment for 10 months (390€ each).

What is the student lifestyle like in Trento?

The Erasmus lifestyle is very laid-back: you spend most of the time partying and drinking with the other students. There is only a short period of time where most people spend their time studying.


Would you recommend the city and the University of Trento to other students?

Yes and no. It depends on what you want to experience. If you just want to party all night long and go to many different clubs and bars, it's not your first choice (but there are a few places to go, and with the right people it can be lots of fun, trust me). However, the city is very small has its perks as well: pretty much everything is in walking distance and you meet your friends on the street, in the supermarket etc.

What is the food like?

Many stereotypical Italian shops including pasta and pizza mainly. But there is also a traditional cuisine from Trento.


How much does it cost to live in Trento?

The rent is between 300 and 400€ depending on the quality and size of your place.

Food is pretty much average European standard from my experiences.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

Yes, but most Erasmus students go to English courses anyway.

Yes, there is a free language center I can recommend taking courses in.


What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Trento from your city?

Since I am from Munich (Germany) it is by Flixbus (around 15€ for an about 4-hour drive).

Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Trento?

Predrinks at homeone's house --> Baccus --> Scaletta --> Hakka. In that order.

Tried and tested on many occasions.

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Trento?

Korallo arguably has the best pizza.


Is there any other advice that you could give to students going to Trento in the future?

Try to find a bike if you're into mountain biking. Since there a heaps of mountains hiking is always nice as well.

Apart from that also come here ready to meet lots of nice boys/girls and prepare for some fun nights of drinking.
