Summer Programs and language courses

Summer programs

With the Summer Programmes it is possible to spend a period of 2 to 8 weeks abroad during the summer at one of our globally top-ranked partner universities, and to select examinations to take for which you will be able to apply for ECTS credits recognition on your return.

The Summer Programmes are aimed at all students and recent graduates of Università Cattolica who wish to take one or more courses at a university abroad during the summer months.

There is no minimum average mark to participate, you just have to demonstrate a good knowledge of English. Don't you have a certification? Don't worry, you can take an English test at Cattolica International during enrolment.

You will be able to register from December for some programmes and from January registration will be open for all destinations. 
Please note: the closing date for entries is different for each programme!

The departure date and programme duration vary depending on the destination, but all courses run for between 2 and 8 weeks during the summer months (mostly between July and August).

Scholarships awarded on the basis of academic merit and paid as reimbursement are available for each destination. In 2019, around 200 scholarships were awarded to deserving students from all faculties. To apply for a scholarship, simply register for the programme!

Additional scholarships, allocated by Fondazione UBI Banco di Brescia, are available for students of the Brescia campus. Full details for the call for applications here.

Given the continuing uncertainty at the international level, it is necessary to take into account the possibility that the available programmes and the way in which they will be carried out may change during the selection phase, before the start date or during the course of the programme, should health conditions in a given country make it impossible to safely carry out the programme as originally planned.

All Summer programmes include insurance cover and the activation of the  Student Safety Package
