The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore has developed a special program, Cattolica Africa Program, for students from the African continent. This program will enable students to study for undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs taught in English at UCSC’s Milan, Piacenza and Cremona Campuses.
Tuition and Scholarship
Through the Cattolica Africa Program all eligible applicants will be offered tuition fee reductions varyng from EUR 1,500 – 5,500 per year. 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 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.
