In keeping with the objective of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore to cultivate partnerships with developing countries, the university has designed a unique curriculum specifically for students hailing from the African continent. Students who enroll in this program will have the opportunity to earn postgraduate degrees that are both two years long and taught in English at one of the following campuses: Milan, Brescia, Cremona, Piacenza, or Rome.
All applicants who are successful in getting in will receive tuition fee discounts thanks to the Africa Scholars Program (see the chart below). However, students will still be liable for their own living expenses; hence, the Università Cattolica Africa Scholars Programme is NOT a program through which full scholarships can be gained. This is due to the fact that students will still be responsible for paying their own tuition.
Students from all of Africa’s countries, whether they are citizens or residents, are eligible to apply for the Africa Scholars Program. However, the program is only open to those degree programs listed below that are instructed in English.
