The International Student Advisors will assist all international students from the very first contact and throughout the students experience at Cattolica. The support services include assistance with admissions, enrolment, housing, academic advising, access to health and welfare services, visa and residency permit applications and financial questions.

  • Italian Language and culture courses

UCSC International together with the Language Center offers specialized Italian language courses before and throughout the academic year for International students wanting to improve their Italian language level. Check out the Italian Language and Culture Course page: exchange students or degree-seeking students.

  • Tutoring

Every degree-seeking student enrolled at the university will be paired with a tutor, whose responsibility is to assist him/her with integrating the university environment and to provide support in case of need. More specifically the tutor can help with questions regarding the degree curriculum and requirements, the scheduling of exam dates or sessions, the university services, and assist in solving any administrative difficulty encountered. The overall role of the tutor is also to encourage the formation of study groups.
