Advising and guidance

Orientation refers to all activities aimed at enabling the future student or current student to plan and manage their learning in a manner consistent with personal life goals and making full use of individual skills and interests in order to achieve personal fulfilment.

Depending on the moment in the university course when these activities are implemented, a distinction is made between:

  • guidance on entrance: carried out before choosing a course of study, it is aimed at prospective freshmen and offers support in identifying the course to be undertaken on the basis of individual interests, expectations and aptitudes. In this phase, the different possible scenarios are presented to the future student and the alternatives of the university pathway are illustrated;
  • orientation in progress: carried out during the university career, it is aimed at enrolled students and is designed to guide them within the courses of study already undertaken, enabling them to establish a better interaction with the structures and the university context.


The Degree Course in Mathematics organises various orientation and outreach activities for high school students:

Gare a squadre di Matematica (Referee Prof. Alberto Saracco)

Progetto CORDA (Referee Prof. Emilio Acerbi)

Seminari per le scuole superiori (Referee Prof.ssa Maria Groppi)

Stage estivo di Matematica e Informatica (Referee Prof.ssa Maria Groppi)

In addition, a Mathematics Syllabus has been prepared, i.e. suggestions for fine-tuning pre-university preparation.

The Referee for all guidance activities is Prof. Luca Lorenzi

Orientation and tutoring in itinere

Orientation in itinere is carried out by Tutors (teachers and students) and is aimed at enrolled students, to guide and support them during their training, guiding and advising them in their choices and supporting them in the organisation of their studies, in order to build a coherent training pathway and prevent delays in the completion of their studies.

Delegate for Tutoring is Prof. Luca Lorenzi
