LUISS Orientation Summer School’s goal is to guide students so that they can face their future with confidence.
LUISS Orientation Summer School is for students between 15 and 19 years old. For one week during the summer, they are immersed in the university environment and a teaching method that is very different than the one they are accustomed to at secondary school.
Mornings are dedicated to academics: university lectures, case studies and group work, on topics in economics and business, law, political science and communication, engineering, food science and human nutrition and medicine (in conjunction with other universities).
Afternoons are spent on logical reasoning and verbal comprehension skills, which are fundamental skills for passing the admission test at LUISS and other public and private universities with a set number of students.
At the end of the week-long course, students who have finished their second-to-last year of secondary school and have attended a week of LUISS Orientation Summer School with no more than one excused absence, can take the admission test to LUISS.
Candidates who have a SAT/ACT/ECDL certificate obtain a bonus percentage in the ranking if they submit the original documentation by the beginning of the summer week.
At the end of the course, students receive a certificate for the recognition of credits. In order to earn credits, students must attend the entire program.
