Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is the perfect place for Japanese students who wish to experience Italy’s la bella vita (the good life), while acquiring a university education, learning the language and gaining work experience as an intern in one of the school’s partner companies.

Accepting students from more than 100 countries around the world, the university offers exceptional customized services for Japanese. Over the years, the school has seen a growing number of students from its Japanese partner institutions, Sophia University and Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University.

Founded in 1921, the university is the largest private university in Europe with four campuses across Italy — in Milan, Piacenza-Cremona, Brescia and Rome. Its students are able to choose from more than 100 programs taught both in English and Italian across 12 faculties.

Under the leadership of its rector, Prof. Franco Anelli, 13 of the school’s disciplines were among the top 300 in the QS World University Rankings by Subject and among the top 110 in the QS Graduate Employability Ranking.

With its strong international focus and genuine Italian characteristics, the university is committed to strengthening its ties with Japan by welcoming not only more Japanese students but also visiting Japanese professors.
