Hi there. So, I’m applying to Messina university as a non-EU, chose this uni because of the n of spots and the score needed, since I’ve got only two months to prepare for the exam. Looking into Messina, first I was only disappointed to some degree because of the city and the little close to nothing available activities there, only to be told about the Sicilian mafia just today and now I can’t stop worrying about the safety in Sicily, which is kind of unusual to begin with. So ANY advice would be much appreciated, please contact me if you know anyone studying in Messina so I can ask a few questions

Hello Naz, your worries are justified for someone who isn’t familiar with the life in Italy in general and Sicily and the South in precise. You need to know that in Italy the mobs won’t hurt the forgieners, especially the students, since they have no business with you and you also as a forgien person bring money and life into the local economy. So as long as you don’t come across their path and entangle with them purposely, you have nothing to worry about. I hope that comforts you!

I actually changed my mind and applied to another uni, but from what I hear the professors are pretty decent (at least for the Italian course), like their anatomy professor is the writer of the textbook that is being used in all Italy. Now the city, definitely get a place in city center, nobody recommends any other area specially if you are a foreigner. Yea and also talk to students from there and get more info, I talked to dozens of them, they’re really helpful
