Advising and guidance

Guidance refers to all activities aimed at enabling future and current students to plan and manage their learning in a way that is consistent with their personal life goals and makes full use of their individual skills and interests to achieve personal fulfilment.
Depending on the stage of the university process at which these activities are carried out, a distinction is made between:
Incoming guidance: carried out before the choice of degree course, incoming guidance is aimed at future students and offers support in identifying which course to take based on individual interests, expectations and aptitudes. In this phase, the various possible scenarios are presented to the future student and the alternatives of the university curriculum are illustrated; ongoing guidance: carried out during the university career, it is aimed at enrolled students and is designed to guide them through the degree courses they are on, enabling them to better interact with the structures and the university context; career guidance: carried out close to or after graduation, it is aimed at graduates or undergraduates and designed to facilitate their introduction into the working environment.


The main incoming guidance activity is the Open Day (approx. April/May each year), which involves course illustrations, distribution of information material, face-to-face interviews and visits to departments.
At the beginning of classes, the course organises a presentation for new students, in which the course president and professors/instructors explain the courses, the syllabi, the types of related examinations and all the initiatives envisaged by the degree course.
All the professors/instructors of the second-cycle degree in Journalism, Publishing Culture and Multimedia Communication are available, during their respective office hours, to suggest the most suitable curricula to follow in order to approach their programmes of study with confidence and understanding. For special requests and problems relating to individual programmes of study, validation of examinations from previous courses of study, declarations of equivalence, etc., please contact the course president Prof. Marco Deriu - email: and the professors/instructors:
