Program Description:


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 2016, Cattolica’s ascendency placed the University in formidable company, with 10 disciplines ranked in the top 200 in the world, or higher

Whilst at Cattolica prides itself on academic reputation, what truly distinguishes our University is the campus diversity.

The Milan, Italy campus is located on hallowed turf. Developed around the original site of a monastery, the Milan campus is in the very heart of the city. Home to over 27,000 students, the 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.

Learn about your destination by visiting the State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs web page at to find country specific information about visa, safety and security, local laws, health, and more.   

To all international students, Cattolica offers two different curricula of study with a wide variety of courses. Students can choose to create their own semester of study by selecting courses from either of the two curricula. For detailed information please visit

Internships: This program offers opportunities for internships including both part time and full time options. It is encouraged students take two courses of Italian before receiving an internship placement. More information about internships in Milan can be found HERE as well as additional fees

Cattolica’s student housing options are as numerous as they are varied: students may check the University housing announcement board or seek assistance from ESN, the international student association. Students have the option of living in a dorm or an apartment in the city. Dorm options can be limited so it is important to submit your request early. Students live in shared apartments with other international students.

Housing in Milan - The cost varies according to the type of housing (shared apartments/dorm) and the proximity to the campus. Therefore, the prices are merely an estimated. € 3,250 per semester.
