Guidance plays a decisive role in the complex and structured process of higher education for the new generations. The choice of a university course is in fact a very delicate point in the life of students, who have to make an informed choice to pave the way for the future life they want;
In general, the guidance service consists of guaranteeing all the activities connected to the incoming orientation processes for students, supporting future students and their families in making informed choices of the university pathway, and welcoming students, including foreign ones, into the university context.
As well as the activities coordinated centrally by the Academic and career guidance division, the university also offers the actions implemented on the direct initiative of the individual study course. These initiatives take the form of placements activated within individual departments by the guidance delegates of the various courses of study and taking place over one or more days; the relevant information is collected in a digital brochure published annually on the website; the same brochure is sent by email, through direct contact with school guidance directors and teachers, to all schools in the catchment area (Parma and neighbouring provinces as well as other provinces in which guidance meetings are organised in schools or where guidance fairs are held).
The Review Group periodically reviews the content of the presentation of the degree course to future students. On the Open Days and Info Days scheduled by the University, the year tutors, work with final year students to organise online meetings dedicated to future students. The coordinator of this activity is the Course President.
