Come Visit the University of Gastronomic Sciences

Third Open Day of 2006 at Pollenzo and Colorno on Saturday June 24

On Saturday June 24 the doors at UNISG’s two
campuses in Pollenzo and Colorno will be open to welcome
aspiring students and all those who are interested in finding out more
about the University. We would recommend students interested in the
undergraduate degree course to visit the Pollenzo campus, and those
interested in the postgraduate Masters programs to visit the Colorno

During the Open Day, UNISG staff will be available to explain to
visitors the project, the first academic institution dedicated to the
study of Gastronomic Sciences. Information will also be available on
the history of the University’s two historic campuses, application
procedures and student services.
Two conferences will be held, one in the morning and
