The University now presents “Play the Future, Open Week” to help students select the right graduate degree programme. An entire week on Webex to showcase the academic programmes of 11 Faculties and all the upcoming initiatives for the 2021/2022 a.y.

Talent educator or dream factory?” webinar reflecting on the strategic role that the university plays in educating young talent and their entry into a rapidly changing workplace.
On a more practical note, there will be an up-close perspective of university life with live discussions on university fees and relevant topics such as ‘How much does it cost to study at Università Cattolica?’ (Monday 22, 16.00; Thursday 25, 10.00), plus, daily streams on admission procedures - held at the end of each Faculty presentation (12.00 and 17.00) - and a focus on student services, live on @Instagram daily from 18.00 to 18.30.
