In its 25th anniversary year, our community counts 3923 students, the highest number ever. This year USI was also honoured with the Global Student Satisfaction Award for best student-teacher interaction. We could not have received a more beautiful gift for our birthday: the award was coveted by 4.000 participating institutions, and we were voted for by our students who, from Ticino and all over the world, chose us as the way forward for their future.

Some of their stories are featured in the video below


At the closing of USI25, some reflections by USI Rector Boas Erez: "If I think back to the goals we set ourselves a year ago for the 25th-anniversary celebrations, I can only thank the university community and the people of Ticino for allowing us to reach them. It was a collective effort that united staff members and academics and allowed us to get to know each other and the region that hosts and supports us."

Università della Svizzera italiana wishes all happy holidays!


The video features five USI students, representing the 3923 students enrolled, explaining why they chose USI as the way to their future.
