The second Insubria University Open Day dedicated to Swiss high school students took place successfully on 6 March. The comforting results of last year's edition prompted Professor Giorgio Maria Zamperetti, the Rector's delegate for Internationalisation, and Professor Michela Prest, the Rector's delegate for Communication, Orientation and Fundraising, to continue their efforts to disseminate the academic reality of Insubria University in the neighbouring Confederation.

The event took place in the reception hall of the Consulate General of Italy, where about one hundred students from Ticino flocked to meet lecturers, students and university staff to learn more about the contents of the degree courses of the Varese and Como campuses, with their successful professional paths in the areas of health and sports, science and technology, economics, law and the human and social sciences.

There was particular interest in the wide range of international mobility opportunities offered by Insubria, including several with Swiss universities. 

Consul General Gabriele Meucci said: «I am delighted to have once again hosted the Open Day, which again this year attracted the enthusiastic interest of numerous schools in Ticino. The recognised excellence of the University of Insubria and the geographical and cultural proximity create fertile ground for these cultural exchanges in the Insubric region. I would like to thank Professor Zamperetti for again proposing the initiative and Professor Prest for organising everything so well. This second edition, of course, is not a point of arrival, but a starting point».
