  • Master Info Day

    The Master Info Day enables visitors to navigate the vast array of Master's programmes offered at USI. Each Master's is presented by its academic director and current students enrolled in the programme. The institutional presentation and student testimonials provide visitors with a comprehensive overview of the specialisation of their interest.

    Academic directors will specifically address the programme's content, structure, and organization (duration, internships, thesis, exchange semesters, languages of instruction, etc.) while also highlighting the professional prospects associated with the Master's programme.

    The presentations will be enriched with testimonials from current students, offering valuable perspectives and alumni of the programme.

    Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to visit our campuses.
