Erasmus Experience in Turin, Italy by Jessica

Why did you choose to go to Turin, Italy?

4 months and I received a mobility scholarship of $3250, approximately 2160 euros.

How is the student ambiance in Turin?

It's good. There are a lot of students in the city center, but less in the surrounding areas.

Yes, however, it's important to live near the city center to appreciate it.

Very good, fairly healthy. The ingredients are mostly very fresh.

Did you have any difficulties securing housing in Turin?

Yes, especially because I was there for a short duration.

What is the cost of living in Turin?

Normal, a lot less than touristic cities like Rome, Florence, Venise, Paris, etc. It's nice to live there for that reason.

How were your language studies? Did you have a course organized by the university?

I had an introductory course, but they spoke very quickly, so I did not learn the language in-depth.

By plane, because I'm from Canada.

The Museum of Cinema and the Museum of Automobiles!
