About Us

Founded in 1921, Università Cattolica boasts over 41 000 students across 12 Schools. Aside from our 200+ Italian programs, we offer Undergraduate, Graduate, Summer and Semester programs in English and offer a strong interdisciplinary approach. The areas covered range from traditional fields as Philosophy, Psychology and Italian literature to the most competitive and cutting-edge fields of Banking and Finance, International Business, International Relations, Agricultural Economics, Management, Medicine and Surgery.

Merit-based scholarships are available for international students on most programs: applying is easy and simultaneous to the application procedure, which is entirely online.

The main campus is located in an ancient cloister in the heart of Milan, which will impress you for its beauty, historical value and quiet environment. Students can enjoy and exploit at their doorstep the atmosphere of the Italian capital of finance and fashion, thriving with investments and business connections as well as with unique leisure and cultural opportunities. It’s no surprise that Milan has also been ranked the best Italian city to study in the QS Best Student Cities 2013-14 ranking. Università Cattolica’s other campuses are in Piacenza and Cremona, traditional cities strategically located in the Food Valley and yet just a train ride away from Milan, as well as in the Italian capital, the city of Rome.

High quality services are offered to international students such as dedicated orientation events, administrative offices for assistance with visa and other bureaucratic procedures, accommodation and language support, internship and placement assistance. Other services shared with domestic students, encouraging social interaction, include student associations, sport facilities,  multiple canteens, a career center and many more.

By living and studying here, students are ideally positioned to put into practice the knowledge gained at the University whilst using their own language abilities and cultural competencies.
