Open days and study advisory - Bachelor

In order to allow prospective students to know more about the Università della Svizzera italiana and its study curricula, the Study Advisory Service organizes several open days during which interested people can follow detailed presentations, visit the campus and meet students and professors.

Moreover, USI takes part in a number of fairs and open day events in high school.
