The Orientation Summer School helps high school students make conscious decisions on their future studies while allowing them to take admissions tests early and win full scholarships.
Students spend a week immersed in university life, participating in lessons, case studies and group work from LUISS degree programs in Economics, Law and Political Science as well as courses from the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome in Industrial Engineering, Medicine, Surgery and Nutrition.
During afternoon sessions, students will be introduced to logic, problem-solving and reasoning found in university admissions tests, including LUISS.
Both morning and afternoon courses are held on the LUISS campus on Via Romania in Rome's Parioli neighborhood and the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome in Rome's Trigoria zone.
Orientation Summer School sessions are held in English and Italian, with different programs. The English courses are dedicated exclusively to LUISS degree programs.
