UNICT campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Catania. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. The exchange of intercultural experience occupies a special place in training at UNICT. The educational institution regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs and organizes various joint events.
