A great achievement and an unexpected surprise given the still current critical situation due to Coronavirus which, however, has not been able to block the expectations of numerous foreign learners, eager to undertake a great academic path at UniCamillus. The University, in fact, through a highly qualified teaching staff, allows them to learn all the medical-scientific notions in order to be able to put them into practice even in their country of origin.
Furthermore, UniCamillus grants an important number of scholarships, partially or totally covering the university tuition, to deserving and motivated non-EU learners who do not have sufficient own economic resources. The formula used is the “loan of honor”, fully extinguished if, after graduation, the young health professional returns to practice the medical profession in his/her country of origin for a period of not less than at least three years.
“The experience at UniCamillus is proving to be very important for me – says Anagha, a student of Indian origin – thanks to an always available academic staff and excellent learning methods”.
UniCamillus thus continues to pursue two values deemed essential: internationality and humanitarian mission.
