Are you curious to know how a university lecture unfolds?
Come and live the two-day experience as a USI student, completely immersing yourself in the daily life of the university and participating in the lessons of the USI Bachelors.
During the Spring Semester, you can choose whether to participate in the Bachelor Ministage on 4-5 March 2024 or 25-26 April 2024.
The event's structure will not change, but the lessons offered will be different, as we respect the official lesson timetable: don't worry; in both cases, you will have the opportunity to discover what is taught in a university lecture!
We will present you our Bachelor's Degrees in:
- Communication (in Italian)
- Lingua, letteratura e civiltà italiana (in Italian)
- Economics (in Italian)
- Informatics (in English)
- Philosophy (in Italian)
- Architecture (in Italian): Mendrisio Campus - register here.
The event is open to all interested students, but hotel accommodation is offered only to those coming from outside Canton of Ticino and Lombardy for organisational reasons. Those coming from these regions and who still wish to stay in Lugano can take advantage of a special rate with some hotels near the university.
Participation in the event is confirmed within 48 hours (working) from registration. A certificate of participation is issued via email on the second day of the Ministage.
Studying at USI
USI has been an extremely positive step in my educational journey, which I remember with great pleasure. It is a young university, but also very modern in its teaching methods, which combine theory and practice. The teaching staff is of great value and comes from the best European universities and beyond. In addition, the heterogeneity of the classes allows for an exchange of opinions and visions that broadens the mind in an age where it is essential not to see the world from a single point of view.

Why l'Università della Svizzera italiana (USI)?
USI is a young and agile university that offers its students a quality education and an enhancing study experience. International faculty teach students with an interdisciplinary, engaging and interactive approach, leaving room for practical application.
The quality of the study curricula is complemented by USI small size, its cosmopolitan environment and its informal and dynamic culture.
These elements make USI a hub of opportunity open to the world, where students can engage in direct dialogue with their professors and define their educational path, discover unexpected horizons, and embrace international careers.
