Study Abroad


Application for 2nd semester 2024/25 are open UNTIL MAY 20.

Full English version of this page will be available soon. In the meantime, if you need information about the programme, please refer to the Italian version or contact Cattolica International (contact details at the bottom of the page).



With the Study Abroad network, Catholic University students can apply for some of the best universities in the world.

The programme opens twice a year: in October-November for departure in the 1st semester of the following academic year and in March-April for departure in the 2nd semester of the following academic year.

Once you have received confirmation of your destination, it is your responsibility to submit applications for exam approval, as follows:  

  1. Follow the instructions for your Faculty and consult your exam record.
  2. Read carefully the specific academic instructions for each destination, which can be found in the flyers/notes or on the destination university website (NB access to the complete educational offer is not always available).
  3. Attend meetings with the representatives of individual Faculties.

Approval of an examination by the relevant academic staff at Cattolica does not automatically guarantee access to the course at the destination university, since:

  1. the course abroad may run out of available places or may be cancelled/moved to another semester: for this reason it is best to propose as many exams as possible for approval
  2. prerequisites for acceptance on a course abroad have to be verified
  3. you must check that the Cattolica exams that you are applying approval for can be included in your study plan, in line with the rules of your degree programme. 

NB You must pass the exam abroad. Course attendance is not valid for purposes of recognition.

Study grants

Cattolica International offers individual study grants to the value of €1,200, which will be awarded until funds are exhausted.

When applications are closed, and following communication on the award of study grants, applicants will be required to confirm their willingness to take part in the programme.

Examples of documents which may be required to obtain payment of study grants:

  • ISEE forms: an ISEE document may be required specifically for use by the university
  • Receipts: you should keep receipts of all payments for accommodation, transport, flights etc.


Costs vary depending on the destination: consult the page of the destination university you have chosen to find our details about tuition costs and accommodation.

Before departure you will be requested to pay a € 500 non-refundable programme fee. In case of extension you will be required a fee of € 150.

Selected students will appear as properly enrolled in Cattolica during their stay abroad and will have to continue to pay university fees in line with deadlines published by the relevant Università Cattolica office.

All students who take part in an international programme promoted by Cattolica International are required to sign up to the "Student Safety Package" which comprises an insurance policy and an emergency app. 

Students selected for the programme will be provided with information about costs and how to activate the service. 

Please note that destination universities may require students to take out additional insurance cover. This means in these cases students will have to take out double insurance cover since the “Student Safety Package” is an obligatory requirement.  

In addition, all students leaving on Cattolica International mobility programmes are required to:
