Student reviews on the individual university pages on Studyportals' websites

Here are several examples:

Delft University of Technology

“Studying at the TU Delft gives you two great benefits: 1. The programme is challenging with exams sometimes every 5 weeks (especially in the first year). But education is very rewarding since you learn a lot in a very short amount of time! 2. The university has lots of great projects that you can join if you are looking for some extra challenge. It has an honours programme, and there are also lots of student teams that you can participate in!”

Politecnico di Milano

“You are in a professional context where education is taken seriously. The students’ opinions have relevance, and the professors are generally available for further explanations or additional exercises. You hardly have issues with exams corrections or data.”

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL)

“Lausanne is a fantastic city, full of life, students and events. Moreover, EPFL is a very good university, especially in the scientific domain, and offers many services to students, from 3D printing to sport activities. Also, ESN Lausanne is very active and organises a lot of interesting and fun events! I had a great time!”

Polytechnic University of Catalonia

“The faculty and infrastructure are very satisfying for any type of student, very supportive in each aspect. The location of the university, city life, culture, language, services and people are incredible.”

University of Sheffield

“Honestly, at this university, I had the best experience. My instructors made me love even more the thing that I chose to study, and they taught me with real-life experiences and examples that I will meet for sure in my life when I graduate. I can't be anything but grateful to choose this university for my bachelor.”
