Semester and Double Degree

Calls for the 1st sem. 2023/24 will open at the end of October. To better prepare yourself, take part in an online preview session!
September 30th at 13.00 - October 11th at 5.00 pm

With the Study Abroad network, Università Cattolica students can apply to some of the best universities in the world.

The programme opens twice a year: in October/November for departures in semester 1 of the following academic year and in March/April for departures in the semester 2 of the following academic year.

Once confirmation of their destination has been received, it is the responsibility of the students to submit requests for examination approval. It will therefore be necessary to:

  1. follow the directions of your Faculty and consult your examination history
  2. carefully read the specific academic indications for each destination, contained in the notes/flyers or on the websites of foreign universities (access to the entire range of courses is not always permitted)
  3. participate in meetings with the contact persons of the individual Faculties

Obtaining approval of an examination by the professors in charge does not automatically guarantee access to the course at the foreign university, as

  1. the course abroad may run out of available places or be cancelled/shifted by semester: it is advisable to propose as many exams as possible for approval
  2. you must check that you meet any prerequisites for access to foreign courses
  3. check that the Cattolica examinations for which approval is sought can be included in the degree curriculum, in accordance with the rules of your degree programme

Note: it is necessary to pass the examination abroad, course attendance is not sufficient for recognition.

Cattolica International is offering 15 scholarships worth €2,000, which will be awarded to the first students on the merit list, in proportion to the number of students enrolled per Faculty.

When registration closes, following the announcement of the scholarship allocation, all registered students will be asked to confirm their willingness to join the programme.

Some examples of documents that may be requested in order to obtain scholarships:

  • University ISEE: the ISEE document may be requested for specific university use
  • Expense receipts: we advise all students to keep receipts for payment of accommodation, transport, flights, etc.



Costs vary depending on the destination, see the page of the destination you are interested in for full details on academic and housing costs. 

The selected students will be regularly enrolled at Cattolica even during their stay abroad and will have to continue paying university fees according to the deadlines dictated by the competent office at Università Cattolica.
