Le aree di studio

At the beginning of the lessons, informative meetings are held at the degree programme teaching centres or other University venues to present the course structure to freshmen and students.

Usually held by university teachers as debating conferences, these sessions illustrate the organizational structure of Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes, and their respective syllabuses.
