3 Open new doors Imagine studying at a university which can offer you the choice of a study abroad experience at not one, but four of the most iconic cities in Italy. That s the opportunity which awaits students who choose Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, affectionately known as Cattolica. Cattolica, a comprehensive university, covering an impressive range of programs from Medicine, Law, Philosophy and the Arts, through to Economics & Business, Accounting & Finance, Agriculture, Psychology and Linguistics. In the renowned QS World University Rankings by Subject 2015, Cattolica s ascendency placed the University in formidable company, with every discipline ranked in the top 200 in the world, or higher. Whilst at Cattolica we pride ourselves on our academic reputation, what truly distinguishes our University is the campus diversity. Imagine living and studying in Milan or Rome, both seats of ancient empires. Milan, which is now an acclaimed fashion center of the world, home to many of the world s iconic luxury brands. And Rome, the Eternal city, which is an archaeological spectacle and feast. The home of masterpieces and the Vatican, a city whose footprint reflects almost three millennia of history. Then there is our campus in the heart of Brescia, a city of ancient wonders above and below the cobblestone streets and laneways. And Piacenza-Cremona, located at the cross-roads of Italy s famous agricultural heartland, where local providers hang the hams and meats which are sought and coveted throughout the world. But whichever your choice of location, you remain part of one family. The Cattolica family. One whose networks touch every corner of the globe, whose care and commitment towards every student binds us as one. And ensures an international study experience like no other. 4 5

4 Open your mind An international study experience is that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become fully immersed into a different society and culture. A time of freedom and friendship which will be forever etched into your life s memory. Your international study experience will allow you to push new boundaries. To open your mind to a completely different world, where your fellow students will share different perspectives, where your teachers will instil alternative ways of thinking, where you will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience to become immersed within a completely different culture and experience. In choosing Cattolica, you will become part of a community of 41,000 students, students and scholars who attend one of our twelve schools and who access a library which contains over two million volumes. Our alumni and academic community is extensive, with numerous world-leading researchers, scholars and academics. Our industry and employer networks are truly remarkable, meaning that we can offer over 6,900 internships per year. We boast an international community of more than 2,800 students from over one hundred countries. We have links with universities in over sixty countries, from Australia, France and South Africa to India, China and Colombia. And our range of campus facilities and services ensures that every international student has access to all of the support, information and mentoring which international students seek. These include a dedicated international student center, a housing service, health center, sports facilities and international student associations. From your first day at Cattolica, you will not only feel part of our University, you will be a welcome part of our community. 6 7

5 Open your heart Our Milan campus is located on hallowed turf. Developed around the original site of a monastery in the very heart of the city. Home to over 27,000 students, our Doric and Ionic cloisters provide a haven of peace and grace within a city which offers an abundance of food, history, heritage and choice. Milan is Italy s commercial heart. Yet the city itself is a place of Cathedrals and Basilicas, galleries and museums, fortresses and canals, shops and restaurants, parklands and streetscapes. And then we have our beautiful campus in Piacenza, in which we also include a small facility in nearby Cremona. Piacenza is located in the culinary heartland of Italy, a medieval town which is surrounded by the enchanting Italian countryside. Piacenza is quintessential Italy. Charming. Beautiful. Historic. And unrivalled. Our Brescia campus is a hidden jewel. Once experienced, never forgotten. Whilst a small campus, the location is unforgettable. Although the campus has only 3,700 students, it is a world-leader in such fields as Mathematics and Physics, and enjoys a stellar reputation in such fields as Linguistics and Theater. What makes Brescia unique however is the experience which the campus offers. Iconic, historic Italy. Minimal traffic, cobblestone streets, family cafes and few tourists. Yet Brescia is less than an hour by train from Milan. Our Rome campus is home to our School of Medicine and Surgery, plus the campus is proud to host our School of Economics. The School of Medicine and Surgery is affiliated with the Policlinico Gemelli University Hospital meaning that all health students, across all fields, have access to a world-class hospital just a walk from our doorstep. Located just a few minutes from the center of Rome, our 6,500 students benefit from access to internationally acclaimed experts in their field, including a truly impressive 43 Faculty members listed among the top Italian Scientists. 8 9

7 Open your world You are a member of the world s first truly global generation. A generation which considers the world as borderless. Where the purpose of one s journey is to build a portfolio of experiences, competencies, skills and networks through various means. Where one journey is never complete, without a new journey planned. Where your commitment to lifelong learning is viewed as a given, not a rite. Welcome to Generation Global. One day, the way in which you accrue your life and career portfolio will differentiate you in the competitive world of employment. Opinion leaders and employers will seek evidence of what makes you different. The places you have been. Your experiences and knowledge. Your qualifications and communication skills. The languages spoken. And your view of the world. And then there is proof of the practical abilities which they seek, such as your understanding of different cultures. Your ability to become immersed and engaged in different societies. Your ability to become part of a team. Your ability to think, act and behave independently. Your university years represent the best time of your life to build the portfolio which will open these doors to the world. So remember this. Your degree may be the ticket. But you need to choose the right destination
