  • Greetings from Turin, Italy

    Hello everyone, I'm from Turin now, but I'm born in Sardinia.

    I'm here because I recently made a decision, to give up on my studies here in Italy and to move me to the North Europe for a new life.

    I was thinking about Scotland, because there are no universtity tuition fees. So, I will travel in Scotland in October (about) of this year, for looking a job and for a flat.

    I haven't a good english, so I'm sorry for it. I'm studying now for the IELTS before start my dream.

    Have a nice day, Gian .

    Hi and welcome

    remember that although the actual university courses are free (youl need to check if your eligible first) youl still need lots of money to live here so youd need to have a fairly decent job......if your looking for bar or cafe work then youl struggle to survive.

    example.... 20 hours bar work = 140 a week or 560 a month.
    a single room in a shared flat will cost you at least 350/400 a month so not leaving much for bills/food/course materials etc

    the cost of living here is very expensive compared to Italy

    most students still amass massive debts while at uni

      Hi Tig, thank you for the answer.

      I prefer to look an job in the IT, I'm already an IT developer, I have worked yet here, but I haven't problem to any job initially. Here in Turin for flat I pay from 400 to 500 (depends for the bills) a month (I live alone), about 330/410 . I'm thinking to come there with a friend, so it's more easy for me.

      All my costs here are about 700 -> 580 , but the salary is more less.

      How city I'm thinking to Glasgow, or in near there.

      I will come there especially for a job, for a new type of life, in the second plan for a degree (but isn't the first choice to the travel).

                    Tig, I'm seeing the link, there are more job in that sector, and the average pay is about 30,000 a year, it is very good, I was thinking less.
