Hi, I’m considering a year abroad in Austria, Switzerland or somewhere like that, and was wondering if anyone knew anything about what uni life is like over there?

I’m also wondering about how the days are structured, and also the exams! I’ve heard you have to do a lot of presentations over there?

Thanks!

I did a semester in Italy, not sure how similar it is to Austria & Switzerland but different from uni here. They do more of their exams as oral presentations / speaking exams, so the examiner just asks you questions and you speak back to them.
For me in Italy, classes were 2 hours long and I had 3 classes per module per week. SO it was a lot of hours but then you didn't do anything extra after classes.

Ah thanks so much!
Those exams sound really interesting haha, so was it just you and an examiner in a room answering questions? Were the classes lectures or seminar style?
Also what subject did you do? I’ll be doing biosciences
