Educational project

The University Colleges of Merit stand out from any other residential offer because of their educational project for students.


Living in a University College means being part of a group and experience different levels of complexity and interaction. They represent a 'living and learning environment' where students can learn to manage horizontal and vertical relationships, take part effectively in social activities, develop their sense of responsibility and teamworking skills.


Each University College develops a specific co-curricular program of structured courses, conferences, volunteer experiences, tutorship, coaching and career guidance. The College becomes a facilitator for the enhancement of the so-called ‘soft skills’ requested by the labour market.


International activities play a significant role: besides of daily relationships with students from all over the world (in the Colleges international students represent 12% of the residents), Colleges offer Summer schools and exchange programs with foreign universities or Colleges, stage and study visits.


The collegiate life is a unique mix of skills development, non-formal and informal co-curricular activities with the added value of sharing spaces, resources and experiences. University Colleges facilitate students’ transition from high school to university, offering them tools that promote a shared approach to the problems and supporting them via the presence of mentors and tutors, students who act as 'peer helpers' for their course mates.
