2018 Medicine Ammission, the ‘night before’: Filippo and Augusto at the Humanitas University Campus

The last September 7th, 1500 boys and girls supported the admission test for access to the Humanitas University degree in Medicine at the Assago Forum, in Milan. The course is taught entirely in English.

Filippo, 22 years old from Rome, and Augusto, 18 years from Capri were there. They have spent the night before the exam at in the new residences of Humanitas University, dedicated to the philanthropist Mario Luzzatto.


What do you think about the Campus?

“It is modern, with many services that I like very much: gym, common area and the kitchen” – said Filippo – “unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to use any of them because I just slept and ate there”. Filippo arrived at the Campus by train: “To get there you have to be used to metro and busses”- he joked -” but when you arrive, you’re in total peace. If I will pass the admission test, I would evaluate to stay here for the proximity to the classrooms”.
Augusto: “The campus is comfortable and there are many services. The garden in a very relaxing place: I think that is a great place to study”. “I arrived at the Campus during the exam session – said Augusto again -: I saw the other students in the garden and I went through the admission test. I lived university campus life, I felt self-sufficient, I went shopping and I cooked alone, a new and different feeling”.


Why did you choose Humanitas University?

“I am interested in Medicine, and here is taught in English. It attracts me a lot because I am also interested in experiences abroad that the University offers” – said Filippo – and “also having the hospital there is a big opportunity”.
Augustus knew “already the Campus, because in 2017 I participated in the Preparation Week for the entrance exam”. “I have always appreciated the practical approach of this University. I like the opportunity to enter immediately in a hospital“, concluded the 18-year-old boy.


What do you think about the test?

“The questions of logic were a bit complex, for the rest of the subjects there are always questions that you know and others that you do not know. Everything in the norm”, concluded Filippo.
