Freshmen project

The University of Genoa welcomes new students every year by activating the Freshmen project. The aim of the project is to support the transition to university effectively by enhancing certain transversal skills that are particularly useful for adapting to the university environment.

Accompanying students as they enter a new cycle of education means facilitating their progressive integration through information meetings, group workshops and tutoring.
Furthermore, using effective learning strategies helps to achieve satisfactory academic results and to orientate themselves in the different fields of study with greater autonomy.

Project objectives and values

  • Create a participative learning environment
  • Offering an ongoing mentoring service to increase its timely and constant impact
  • Enhancing the exchange between students and tutors
  • Offering methodological and motivational support for study
