Former Students' Experiences

Alba Marco Sola (Spain)

I think that to come here is the best decision I have ever made. It is a wondeful place to live and to study. You can find everything you want in this island. The people are always taking care of you and you can feel like home here. If you are thinking about doing your studies here, stop thinking and come here to live the best year of your life!

Roberto Urbani (Italy)

I had a good experience in the first semester. I enjoyed the warm weather, the green fields and the University campus. The residence was great as people who lived there, and I enjoyed staying with half portuguese and half foreign students. I had very good teachers, always available to help me, and good classmates. I spent good time riding in the island and hiking every weekend. I played in the football league of the University. I hope the 2nd semester will be as good as the 1st.

Maria Romero Cuesta (Spain)

My Erasmus experience was wonderful. People over here are very friendly and it was really nice to get to learn a new language while making new friends. Azores is an incredible place full of vegetation and marine life. I definitely recommend to anyone to come here for Erasmus!
