Lorenzo Cozzi, at ISCAL since September 2019, is one of the many students who chose our institution to make their ERASMUS + experience. In Italy, its country of origin, is in the second year of the Marketing, Communication Entrepreneurship and Global Markets course, at the University of Milan-Bicocca.  

The Student decided to come to Lisbon for being "a city with a lot of culture and history" and, beyond that, "looked for a big city to have the opportunity to get to know more people, coming from different countries".  

Opted to come to study for the ISCAL, because in addition to being an Institution with plenty of history, as Lorenzo mentioned, classes are taught in English, and not only Portuguese, which, at first, made him feel more comfortable and was seen as a great advantage in the face of other Institutions. Further referring that ISCAL "is a really good university from the international point of view, because it has a large amount of students, coming from different countries."

To attend the second semester at the ISCAL, having therefore stayed throughout the school year, the student considers that this "is the best university for an ERASMUS student, in Lisbon", referring also that "the classes are very interesting and challenging" and "teachers are always available for the clarification of doubts and make us feel as if we were at home". On the other hand, Lorenzo also appreciates the fact that the lessons are "both practical and theoretical", believing that it "allows you to learn the content taught, faster and better", as it is given "the opportunity to try to put into practice what has been studied in theory."

Finally, the young Student advocates that the ERAMUS + program "it is a rather formative experience, which allows you to learn and get to know about different cultures".

Lorenzo thus recommends this mobility programme, as, as you mentioned, it also offers the opportunity to become more independent, away from your relatives, which gives you more time to think about your future. Being in a different country, with another language and other teaching methodologies, the young man says it is something "more challenging" and that "offers a new vision of the way you can learn new concepts".
