Student Orientation

We are virtually always with you. We draw you with our orientation activities when you are still attending your secondary school (it is not by chance that this project is called “A bridge between school and university”) and help you choose your future; we ensure you our full support thanks to our tutoring services; we facilitate at the most your entrance in the world of work, after your graduation, with a wide offer of stages and traineeships; we even help you draw up at best your curriculum. And that’s not all, we’re not letting go of you: we encourage you to further your studies with our postgraduate programmes (professional master courses, PhDs, postgraduate courses, training courses and advanced training courses) and even when you are no longer our student, you can keep in touch with us with the NoiSapienza Alumni Association. In a nutshell, you won’t get rid of us so easily!

"Get to Know yourself" questionnaire

How do I choose the course that suits me best? What job could I do in the future? The “Get to Know Yourself” questionnaire gives students the opportunity to understand themselves better, to make them more aware of their strengths and possible areas for improvement. The questionnaire also aims to provide guidance relating to professional paths that could be more congruous with the studies to be undertaken and the personal skills perceived by the student.
