Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, as part of its mission to foster relationships with developing countries, has developed a special program for students from the African continent. This program will enable students to study in 2-year graduate degree programs taught in English at either Milan, Roma, Piacenza or Cremona campuses.
Through the Cattolica Africa Program, all accepted applicants will be offered tuition fee reductions (see the chart below). However, students will still be responsible for their own living expenses, hence the Cattolica Africa Program is NOT a program through which full scholarships can be obtained. Students, either citizens or residents, of all African countries may apply for the Cattolica Africa Program, which is applicable only for the following degree programs taught in English.
Cattolica Africa Scholars Program
This program consists of 2-year graduate degrees (Lauree Magistrali), all taught in English and commencing in September every year. These programs are preparing for an academic and/or professional career and their graduates are also eligible to enter PhD programs at Italian universities.
Students should expect to cover a minimum of €850 per month for rent and food. Living costs in Piacenza and Cremona are approximately €200 per month lower than in Milan and in Rome.
The tuition fees (after tuition fee reduction) are as follows:
1 Published Tuition: €8,540
2 Tuition fee reduction: €5,540 per year
3 Tuition to be paid: €3,000 per year
