many enroll, many leave

The Italian university system is characterized by a level of dispersion of a student is extremely high, which is a specific feature of criticality.
With regard to the irregularities in the studies, the available data indicate that the proportion of students who achieve the title within the legal duration of the degree course is placed a little above 30% of all students enrolled,compared to an average european was about 40% (ANVUR, 2013; OECD, 2014).

Finally, the data that describe the rates of the abandonment of the university indicate a level of non-completion of the cycle of studies for the Italy around 40% of the members while in the countries of western Europe, the figure varies between 21% and 28% (OECD, 2013; Quinn, 2013).
Ultimately, in Italy, every year, 1 registered on 7 abandoned his university studies just before Ghignoni, 2015).

The abandonment of the academic is determined mainly during the first year of study and this aspect of the phenomenon is an object of study widely discussed in the international literature of the field (Harvey, Drew & Smith, 2006; Larsen, Sommersel & Larsen, 2013)

how to counter this phenomenon

The autonomy, the study and the education are often accessible through the streets of alternative and parallel, which differ depending on the skills and learning styles that each person brings with them (Nenzioni & Guaraldi, 2020). In the last few years have been launched with the interesting lines of the development of research devoted to the strategies deemed most effective to prevent and fight the early, often focused on the guidance or tutoring (Petruccelli, Verrastro & D'amario 2008; Zago, Giraldi, & Clerici, 2014; King, 2014; Giuliani, Moretti, & Morini, 2015), on the mentoring and placement (Shepherd, Manuti, Falcicchio, Rossini & Gem, 2015), learning strategies and on the use of formative feedback (Moliterni, Di Stasio & Carboni, 2011; Moretti, Giuliani, & Morini, 2015).

To TICE we support university students using specific strategies that:

  • help with planning and monitoring frequently, improving the performance of university students (Morisano et al., 2010)
  • are factors highly protective regards the psychological well-being of the students (Ghisi, Bottesi, King, Cerea & Mammarella, 2016).

Our augmentation surgery provides

  • Initial Assessment: that is, an assessment of the initial skills of learning and study, the university embarked on soft skills and emotional course of the young university students;
  • Creating a Goal Setting: that is the definition of goals before long and then the short-term, consistent with their specific study skills and organization;
  • Daily monitoring the path through the frequency at the centre or Skype calls with the psychologist, or a psychologist reference.
  • Strengthening study skills and soft skills, which are useful both in academia and business. 

It may happen that university students experience moments of difficulty,
you stop in front of a complex examination,
start to procrastinate or specimen social anxiety.

We help each student to overcome the difficulties experienced, through a specific support to the planning of the activities of study and attention to the psychological variables related to it.

Our projects are concentrated in and support the connection of academic goals with the professional ones, in order to develop a realistic plan, motivating and focused on the future.

Our students are active participants: compulsory attendance, assignments, weekly to-do, tasks, research, participation in group discussions and presentations to colleagues. 

The group lessons make students aware of the skills needed to tackle the undergraduate courses: writing, critical analysis, public speaking skills, in-depth reading, research, time management, original thought and preparation.

Thanks to the friendly atmosphere, 
students anxious, which is not attended a course by a little bit, show a greater safety after the completion of our journey and the fact that the experience was fun and challenging, helping them to resume their studies.
