The first degrees in the history of our young University were held from November 23 to November 30. Recently we have received the news of a survey published by the Italian newspaper ‘Il Sole 24 Ore’ which classified UniCamillus as ‘first University in Italy for attracting international students’.
This exceptional achievement made us really proud and, for this reason, the University has decided to organize the ‘UniCamillus: International Students First Graduation Ceremony‘: a special event dedicated to international students.
The event included a series of initiatives that culminated with a live streaming of the discussion of the thesis of international students that allowed them to have friends and relatives close, even though virtually, on the most important day of their academic career.
“Let us enrich ourselves with our mutual differences,” said Paul Valéry.
UniCamillus has had this mission since its establishment and the heterogeneity in the origins of the first graduation session was a living testimony of the social and academic commitment that our University has assumed towards the global community.
As many as the 68.42% of those graduating in the first graduation session have foreign origin, and specifically, they come from 7 different countries (Benin, Ghana, Haiti, India, Nigeria, Rwanda, Switzerland).
Moreover, In the near future a Degree in Memory will be awarded to Foligah Grace Mary Kafui, a student from Ghana who died prematurely because of COVID-19 and to whom a scholarship was dedicated.
During the graduation sessions of foreign students it was possible to follow some of the discussions and proclamations in live streaming by connecting to the links indicated below.
