There are several things that I enjoy about the program I am enrolled in. The teachers explain everything in detail and are always willing to give clarification. I also like the services provided by the University, be it the fast canteen services, the low costs incurred when buying academic resources from the libraries.
One thing that I would like to improve about this University is, making the lesson schedule less tight. Sometimes there is a very short break between lessons, which makes it strenuous.
I am currently in my second year, and you must say that from this year the course has taken an extremely positive turn, not only for the almost total return to the classroom, but also and above all because the subjects have become more specific, and that was what I would have expected from the start. The courses are now very stimulating and most of the professors play a fundamental role in making the lesson even more engaging and motivating the study of the subject. I hope that the third year will continue on the wave of this pleasant academic discovery.View more
I am currently attending the Languages, Communication and Media profile and I still think it was the right choice for me. Having attended a linguistic, I wanted to continue with languages but without leading to teaching, and LCM is just the right mix of languages, literature, elements of communication and introduction to various media (journalism, advertising, cinema, etc. ..). At the beginning of the first year you are sorted into language courses by level, but since the program starts more or less from the basics of grammar, you can also start a language you have never studied before (such as Russian). Now I am at the end of my second year and day after day I feel more and more sure of the path I want to take after leaving the triennial. Surely the Cattolica is a competent university with a certain reputation.View more
As we know, the great limitation of the Italian academic world is represented by the frontality and the nationalism of its teaching. An attitude that often leads students to limit, on the one hand, the exchange of information between students themselves and teachers and, on the other, to make them aware of excessive information that is scarcely reusable in a working context. In my five years at UCSC – three of them in the language faculty and two in the political science faculty – I can say that this has rarely happened.
In the three years, following the Arabic and English classes, the teachers followed us, even though the latter were numerous in terms of students. In the two-year master’s degree, in political science for international cooperation, I dealt with various subjects, of a specialist and more generic topics, of a political, historical, economic and sociological nature. After Erasmus in Portugal – which here does not have the immodest purpose of addressing the question in full – I feel I can confirm the quality of the University’s teaching and of the teachers I got to know.
Finally, I spend a few words on the present. UCSC is completely inefficient in providing support to graduate students on their way to careers as far as I am concerned to say here. I believe that the service, poor and incomplete, like various internal offices of the University, can be considerably enhanced in order to reach the standards of the great London universities or some European ones.
In my work, I do not deal with cooperation, although I am in daily contact with international events, geopolitics and geoeconomics. In this sense, often, the wide (but not chaotic) knowledge I received in UCSC allows me to deal with disparate business issues.
A very well-trained team of professors, excellent organization and the university is among the most beautiful in Italy. Probably going back in time I would make the choice to enrol at a Catholic university.View more
As someone who is coming from a small and not so developed country, I am very grateful to have the opportunity to study and live in Italy. I am a student of COMMA (Communication and Management) course, at the Catholic University of Sacred Heart in Milan, Italy. Studying here is one step closer to your dreams coming true. The campus is enormously big, there many green areas, yet it has historical value, so its architectural part is beautiful. It’s like studying at a museum. However, it is provided by new technology and our lessons are pretty modern. Professors are trying their best to have a good connection with students and to educate, them by hosting many food and fashion influencers during our lessons. I enjoy studying here and I think that coming here is the best decision I’ve ever made.View more
I attended the Catholic University of Milan and, in particular, my field of study was Political Science. I would like to underline that some subjects such as Political Science, Labor Law and Occupational Psychology were very interesting and the teachers very qualified. It was a satisfaction to be able to pass the related exams and they certainly enriched my cultural background and gave me food for thought to deepen the topics and be able to relate to other people interested in the subjects I have indicated.
However, I would like to add that the Diploma in Political Science did not help me for my job and even less for my professional career. The reason that the degree I have chosen is too generic and has not allowed me to acquire operational knowledge that can be immediately used in the job market.
It was necessary to attend other specialization courses to qualify professionally and find an opportunity that would give me satisfaction.
I would go back I would choose engineering because it is a much more practical degree address and more connected to the world of work and the skills required by many companies.
Studying languages for international relations is a constant challenge. Studying languages is challenging and often you convince yourself that you know all the rules and new ones come up. From the point of view of International Relations, knowing and understanding the dynamics of today’s world makes me feel a step closer to knowing how to face today’s challenges.View more
The university offers a very high-level program with professional teachers that are always helpful and kind. Also, The university is very well located: very near to the city centre, there are different ways to reach it (metro line, bus, tramway).View more
I liked the teachers’ competence and literary programs. My passion for French literature was born thanks to my teachers. Lessons and exams were well organised. I would like to have had more experiences abroad.View more
