UNIVERSITY CHOICE ORIENTATION SERVICE
This service provides guidance and advice on university entry to school-leavers (First University Choice Orientation) and others who want to continue into higher education (Second University Choice Orientation). It offers them information on Degree Courses and advice on an individual or group level, and in two months of the year, holds an Open Day, where high school students, along with their parents and teachers can participate in lessons and receive guidance on their future university careers.
Individual Educational guidance - (First University Choice Orientation)
The First Choice University Orientation is provided to individual high school-leavers who have no experience of university life. It aims to introduce these students to the university world and to its modern e-learning methods, to help them adopt the best way to approach their university career, and encourage them to make appropriate choices of the study programme best suited to them.
Individual Educational guidance - (Second University Choice Orientation)
The Second University Choice Orientation is addressed to individual students who have already obtained a first-cycle degree and who intend to continue their studies by enrolling in a second-cycle specialization degree course, and also to those who have completed specialization degrees and wish to take a further degree. This form of educational guidance involves analyzing the students’ previous experience and their professional aspirations so as to direct them towards a course of study appropriate to their abilities and their acquired knowledge. These individual University Choice Orientation sessions are held on the specific request of the person concerned, who can reserve a free consultation with a Unicusano expert in the field and receive guidance on the best way to continue their university education.
During Orientation activity at University Campus, Unicusano provides with actual demonstrations of its blended teaching methods. It is possible visit study, research and recreational facilities, and get to know the university and its teaching and tutorial staff, who are the students’ point of reference, both administratively and didactically, throughout their university career.
The orientation activities include:
- presentation of degree courses by the professors
- talking to students already enrolled about their experience at Unicusano
- taking a psychological orientation test
- taking part in a demonstration classroom lesson using the interactive whiteboard
- taking part in an on-line lesson in real-time or recorded
- visiting the university’s study, research and recreational facilities
The visits provide high school students with an insight into our state-of-the-art blended on-line teaching methods.
In certain weeks of the year, Unicusano organizes a Special Orienta event on campus, which is an orientation service that lasts at least 2-3 days and is dedicated to the students of a single high school and their educational needs. During the Special Orienta visit, the students can take part fully in the life of the university, attending seminars, talking to teachers and tutors, and enjoying free accommodation in the Unicusano student residence.

ON-GOING INDIVIDUAL ORIENTATION SERVICE
Unicusano provides all its enrolled students with tutorage and educational guidance throughout their university career. The service is entrusted to the Tutors, who are professional consultants who look after students’ concerns on a regular basis and act as a link between students and teaching staff. The Tutors help keep students in touch with the university environment and try to identify each learner’s needs and assist the progress of their studies.
