Please introduce yourself

My name is Alberto Marinangeli and I come from Rome, Italy. I am a student at St. Louis College of Music, where I study sound engineering. I also play the electric guitar.

Why did you choose Norway?

I have always been fascinated by the Vikings and Norwegian nature. One can really find peace in nature here.

When looking at universities, what stood out to you about UiA?

I looked at universities offering studies with Electronic Music, and UiA immediately stood out as a big and modern university. I was really curious about studying here.

What were your first impressions upon arrival?

The university is a lot bigger than I was used to, so I was a bit overwhelmed. But then I saw that everything works so smoothly and is really well structured, and that made me really happy and satisfied.

What do you think about the course in particular?

I got to choose courses based on my needs and wishes which is awesome! I have learned so much and I get to develop my creative skills based on my interests.

What do you like about Kristiansand and why? 

There are really good places to hike. Nature is beautiful here. And I really like that everything works so well.

What would you like to share about UiA to your home country?

I hope many of the students at my university back home will also come and study at UiA. I will definitely recommend it upon my return. It’s been a great experience.

Do you think UiA has given you any unique opportunities? 

Yes, for sure. I think studying here is one of the best opportunities of my life!
