Orientation events

Università Cattolica organizes 2 Orientation Events per semester to make sure you have the chance to get all the useful information you need for your stay in Milan and to meet other international students.

A detailed programme will be emailed to the students one week before the Orientation Event on campus. Orientation events will either take place in Largo A. Gemelli, 1 (main campus) or in via Carducci, 28/30 (Cattolica International office building).

The Orientation Events are spread over 3 days and the programme consists of:

  • Day 1 (Tuesday morning/afternoon): 
    Registration on Campus (collection of the student ID and Permit of Stay kit), International Welcome Address, Health and Safety and Info-session on Campus Services, lunch/aperitivo offered by Cattolica; information session on the university services for international students, campus tour with the representatives of student associations.
  • Day 2 (Wednesday all day for non-EU students; morning only for EU students): 
    Information sessions on Academic and International Curriculum courses and Italian language courses.
  • Day 3 (Thursday morning):
    Information sessions on Academic Curriculum (run in Italian), and Q&A info session.

During the orientation students will be informed on how to organize their course schedule, select courses, find classrooms, have access to campus facilities (cafeteria, library, health center and sport service etc).

The participation to the Orientation Event is highly recommended.
