Uni-Italia participates and organizes various types of events to promote the Italian Higher Education System and contribute to the process of internationalization of universities and academies. Among these very important are the Italian Day on Higher Education dedicated to foreign students in their countries of origin, organized in partnerships with Italian Cultural Institutes, Italian Embassies and Consulates abroad. Then there is the participation in the most important International Fairs of Higher Education, where not only the universities, academies, conservatories and Italian language schools meet the students, but they have the possibility to deal with the representatives of the educational systems of all the world.
 
 
 
 
Italian Day on Higher Education
The Italian Day on Higher Education, organized with the collaboration of the Embassies, Consulates and Italian Cultural Institutes in the world, are events created by Uni-Italia ad hoc to favor the meeting between the representatives of the Italian universities, academies and conservatories, and foreign students in their countries of origin. They are held in the spaces of the Italian Cultural Institutes, or often at the Campuses of the universities of the foreign host countries, where it is possible for the individual student to meet the representatives of the participating educational institutions, ask for information on active courses, methods and times of enrollment.
The aim of the day is to promote Italy as a Country System: educational offer of universities and academies, Italian language courses, promotion of Italian culture and our country as a destination for training and professional growth.
The Italian Day on Higher Education are structured as follows: official opening in the presence of the Italian Ambassador or Consul present on site, presentation of the day`s program by the Director of the Uni-Italia Center on site, and the Director of the Institute Italian of Culture, presentation of individual universities and academies. It follows the part of meeting with the students in the form of education fair, with dedicated stands, interspersed with activities that involve students in order to make them learn about Italian culture and language (theme games on cooking, language or Italian culture, talk with Italian personalities operating on site, etc.).
Italian days are often associated with larger events, such as the International Education Fairs, preceding these events a few days, or are organized in those countries where such fairs are rarer, as in Vietnam. In this last case, these ad hoc events represented a valid response to the absence of a structured fair, and a great opportunity for on-site students and Italian universities and academies. Moreover, during these events, a tour is always organized at the universities of the host country, so as to combine promotion of the Italian training system and development of relations between universities and academies of both countries, in line with the issues of the internationalization process of the Higher Education.
