THE IMPORTANCE TO CARRY ON WITH THE STUDIES

Il Convitto Nazionale di Assisi, dove proseguire gli studi

National Boarding School of Assisi

For young children from 14 to 17

The project of the Paolo Rossi Academy, which aims to identify Talents (Annual Course P.R.I.T.), involves a daily attendance in a local secondary school, certified and selected (www.convittoassisi.it), able to offer our students accommodation in full board (in this case in Boarding school), in addition to 5 hours per day (6 days per week) of morning classes, based on the subjects included in the school program of the year attended by the student (the assessment will be tested before entering the Boarding School).

Moreover, thanks to a special agreement with the school, our students will attend approximately 7 hours per week of Italian as a second language classes, in order to better understand the other study subjects’ classes.

With regard to high school attendance, all the classes are held in Italian. Attending at least a 2-month Italian language course will remarkably help the students to cope with further activities and their future life.

The aim of the teachers is to create a Customized Educational Plan at the beginning of the school year, in order to facilitate the participation of all the international students.

Università Italiana degli studi di Perugia per stranieri

Italian University for Foreigners

For young men from 18 to 21.

If the athletes are over 18 (18-21 years old) and have completed the secondary school or college, the study program is based on the application and attendance of the local University for Foreigners (www.unistrapg.it), which offers Italian as a second language morning classes, 4/5 times a week for all the students, including accommodation.

The Italian as a second language course will improve the knowledge of our language and will make the stay easier and happier.

All the students interested to attend the University of Perugia (courses of study as follows: Law, Economics, Medicine, Humanities, Sociology, Veterinary, Psychology and many more), are required to have an advanced knowledge of the Italian language by the Italian regulations.

The University for Foreigners of Perugia is the oldest and most prestigious Italian academic institution committed in the teaching activity, research and dissemination of the Italian language and culture in every possible expression (namely art and heritage), both international and advertising communication. Founded in 1921, thanks to the intuition of Mr. Astorre Lupattelli, a lawyer from Perugia, from 1927 it has its headquarters in the prestigious Gallenga Stuart Palace, donated to the town hall by the Count Romeo Gallenga Stuart and located in the heart of the medieval historical centre. Next to the main building there are the four blocks: Prosciutti, Lupattelli, Orvieto e Valitutti that, placed in a magnificent park in the heart of the town and at a short walk from the Palazzo Gallenga, are at the centre of a compound which adds to the research and teaching departments, in addition to the prestigious Villa Colombella, historical aristocratic mansion surrounded by the green hills in the outskirts of Perugia, which completes the excellent heritage owned by the institution. It is mainly addressed to foreigners, but among them there are many Italian students, as well.

Lecturers in English, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese are available at the University for Foreigners.

The faculty takes care, moreover, of the education and upgrading of the teachers of Italian as a second language. It organizes courses of high culture and specialization and it issues graduation and master certificates for Italian and international students.

Today, the University for Foreigners of Perugia has become an international workshop to discuss, debate, compare and exchange. A place for a cultural interchange among students from all over the world who, surrounded by an Italian city, learn the language more easily.

It here that the adult students of the Paolo Rossi Academy study. Young people that, besides being athletes, carry on with their education and acquire knowledge. This is a top priority for us, who look after these young people who need to grow up and develop their education.
