University Of Milano-Bicocca presents International Summer School EXPO Milan 2015

Summer School Programs at University of Milano-Bicocca are a wonderful opportunity for you to invest your summer in acquiring knowledge and skills across a wide range of academic disciplines – Economics and statistical Sciences, Law, Medicine and Surgery, Educational Sciences, Natural Sciences and Sociology.
Dedicated to university students, we are offering 23 intensive summer courses of short duration – one or two weeks – for you to choose from. Over and above all summer schools will have a special theme dedicated to Expo 2015.
You are sure to find something that suits your interests and needs. From classroom sessions to a series of theme-related plenary lectures and/or evening talks & guided visits to Expo will help you explore new ideas and enrich your knowledge in your chosen subjects.
We invite you to explore your interest and immerse yourself in the Italian culture where learning is not limited to the classroom: locations themselves become a ‘living textbook’, allowing knowledge building and information exchange, in direct contact with local students, and fostering an appreciation and awareness of socio-economic reality, diverse cultures, people and ideas.
