Ten answers to an important question: why choose LUMSA? 10 reasons to choose LUMSA:
Ever since it was established, LUMSA's main focus has been on the individual. The training courses are built around the students, to respond to their study requirements and prepare them for the world of work, not neglecting the importance of human aspects. The relationships the students have with teachers and other University staff are based on listening and mutual exchange. The services provided by the University are designed to help students focus on learning, personal development and making the right career choices.
The LUMSA teaching staff are highly trained and always open to discussion with students, to assist them along the path to greater understanding and offer advice on organising their studies or making career choices. The results are clear to see from student satisfaction figures, with LUMSA achieving levels above the national average (96,5% compared to 88,9%).
An environment that offers students advice and a friendly welcome, even before they enrol. Guidance and Tutoring Office and the teaching staff explain the structure and content of our degree programs and talk about life in the LUMSA community. Students are later mentored by the same tutors during their studies, emphasising the direct ongoing relationship that is fundamental to our teaching.
LUMSA offers a series of grants and scholarships to assist students with high potential and those experiencing financial difficulties; the University operates a system of meritocracy as part of the universal right to higher education.
