At the start of semester one, the College organises a number of meeting between students and official course coordinators (presidi di facoltà, presidenti dei consigli di corso di laurea, etc).  These meetings, which involve a brief introduction to the course by the coordinator followed by a questions & answers session, have proved to be extremely valuable in the past in order to enable the students of Volta to focus on key subjects and identify course problems and pittfalls at the very start of the academic year.  

The meetings currently scheduled are listed below, the ones concerning the medical courses will be added shortly. The title sof the meeting/subject are links to the relevant posters.
