Nájomné za dvojizbový byt vrátane poplatkov a energií

Transport to location of placement:
Auto, autobus, vlak

Rough prices for transportation:
Z prahy jazdil Flix za 26€, neskôr už chodil len vlak (niekoľko prestupov)

Tips for purchasing cheap tickets and other recommendations:
Odporúčam zakúpiť 3-4 týždne vopred - ceny sú tak nižšie (miestenky bývajú často vypredané)

What are the local transport options (public transport, cycling, on foot, rough prices):
MHD v Udine jednorázový lístok 1,35€. Bicykel je možno si prenajať na semester za 25€ (viacerí poskytovatelia). Pri bicykloch pozor na krádeže - odporúčam zámok zo silnej reťaze

What kind of formalities have to be arranged before arrival, for example residence permit?:
Zdravotnú poisťovňu

What health insurance did you use? (rough price, advantages, disadvantages, is it necessary to arrange insurance at the university other than your home (Czech) insurance?):
Európsky preukaz poistenca. V prípade zdravotného ošetrenia nad rámec poistenia je možné nechať si spätne preplatiť časť nákladov (rozdiel v cene poskytnutého ošetrenia v Taliansku a na Slovensku)

Did you have any experience with medical treatment abroad?:
Áno

Did you work during your studies?:
Nie

What are the conditions for working for MU students?:
Pokiaľ si študent chce nájsť brigádu, je to možné, ale je nutné ovládať výborne taliansky jazyk. Iba s angličtinou si človek nevystačí

Celé Severné Taliansko je plné prírodných krás, architektonických skvostov a ponúka možnosti turistiky aj množstvo pláží. V Udine je množstvo barov, reštaurácií, centier voľnočasových aktivít

-

40

Did you know in advance which of your courses would be recognised by your home faculty?:
Vypracovával som dizertačnú prácu a teda som vedel, aké kurzy mi budú uznané. Nad tento rámec som počas oboch semestrov navštevoval po jednom kurze a odučil niekoľko prednášok v rámci jedného z nich, avšak ich uznanie som neriešil. Išlo z mojej strany o dobrovoľnú aktivitu nad rámec povinností

What problems did you have with recognition?:
Žiadne

Overall assessment
Assessment of personal benefit (1 = excellent):
1

Assessment of academic benefit (1 = excellent):
1

Evaluate the information and support provided by the foreign school (1 = excellent):
2

Did you encounter any serious problems during your stay:
Nie

What would you recommend to take with you:
Oblečenie do dažďa. V regióne Friuli Venezia Giulia počas zimných a jarných mesiacov vkuse prší a nie je to teda dážď, na ktorý sme navyknutí v SR/ČR. Dáždnik je štandardne nepoužiteľný

What most surprised you at the partner university in a positive way:
Otvorenosť a pozitívny až priateľský prístup profesorov

What most surprised you at the partner university in a negative way:
Nízke administratívne zabezpečenie prichádzajúcich študentov. Podľa mojich vedomostí všetkých študentov prichádzajúcich cez program Erasmus+ administratívne zabezpečujú iba dvaja ľudia, čo je celkom nápor (najmä na tých administrátorov). Na druhej strane všetko vždy bolo dohodnuté vopred a fungovalo presne
