Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore
This is a great program for students who want an introduction to Italian life, culture and language, but want to study in English. The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, founded in 1921 by Father Agostino Gemelli, is one of the most comprehensive and complete higher education institutions in Italy. The campus offers a complete range of services, all of which share a common goal: meeting the needs of a large student population. The campus may best be described as "a city within a city," where finding your way and learning the ropes is easy thanks to effective tutoring services and competent academic advisors and coordinators.

Milan is also a city of art, with a wealth of monuments, palaces, churches and museums, not to mention, the Duomo and La Scala, the temple of Opera. In 2013 Milan was ranked as the top student city in Italy by QS Best Student Cities Ranking.
