Start@UniTO  allows you to start university on the right foot: not only does it help you in choosing the right courses for you, but it also allows you to obtain, from the very beginning of your university career, an exam already passed!


This initiative starts as part of the strategies for the improving in quality and efficiency of didactics, in order to promote and make the transition between high school and university easier, throughout the realization and spreading of a series of teaching, entirely online, to get closer to the university system. This allowed students attending the last year of high school (school year 2017-2018) to check their university choice.

Besides evident relapses in terms of orientation, this projects wants to be a tool for facilitation, motivation and support at the beginning of university, considering relapses as a positive sign to reduce the rate of retreat and dispersal.

The project led to the realization of 20 open online courses (usable by all users, who have personal access details in order to grant a simple monitoring of accesses), on wide and general topics, which are preparatory for the university courses of the first year.

At the end of the courses, students will be given a certificate stating the acquired knowledge, that will be necessary to students enrolled in UniTO in the academic year 2018-2019 (bachelor’s or master’s degree) to immediately take the exam. In this way students can get their learning credits in advance compared to the standard degree course.

In addition, the fact that the teaching is open and accessible by everyone will make the project more open to the audience, meaning also people who are not future UniTO students, in accordance with the purposes of “terza missione” and “public engagement” of the university.

MOOCs –Massive Online Open Courses are free courses for distance learning for a large amount of people and they have been developed by the University of Turin in collaboration with the University of Reading (UK), the University of Helnsinki (FI), the University of Hohenheim (DE), the Queen’s University Belfast (UK) and the University of Warsaw (PL).


All MOOCs will be soon available for free on the online platform Future Learn, where you can already submit and book your participation. First courses will start on Monday 22nd October 2018. Join now to receive assistance from the tutors.

The 5 MOOCs are the result of the UniTo participation in the EIT FOOD project. In fact, the University of Turin is the only Italian academic partner of the EIT Knowledge & Innovation Communities “EIT FOOD”, one of the major initiative on international level, focused on agricultural and food innovation. EIT FOOD connects corporate and academic partners, research institutes and centres of 13 European countries throughout the entire food chain. EIT FOOD activities include the support to projects of innovation, education, communication and creation of innovative enterprises.


Topics of the MOOCs

In the course called “Trust in the Food we eat”, will be examined the challenges and responsibilities of different people in the food system; in particular the role of the consumer in influencing the system to produce food we trust. Available information for consumers will be evaluated and there will be a debate on innovative methods to improve the trust of consumers in food products. How much do you trust your food? Find out the systems of food supply, security, sustainability, nutrition and quality.

The course will start on Monday 22nd October 2018. Join now to receive assistance from the tutors.

The MOOC “Food for thought – the interaction between food and brain”, will examine the interaction between intestine and brain. In fact, organs which are apparently unrelated, are actually interconnected. Through biology, psychology and neurosciences, the correlation between brain, thoughts, emotions and food will be examined.

The course  “Fork2Farm: Sustainable agriculture in a changing environment” will focus on threats to global food security and will consider the main challenges that have to be faced in order to maintain healthy and sustainable food supply for the well-being of consumers in both developing and developed countries. In fact, global chains of food supply are encountering always more significant problems, which affect security and sustainability of the food industry and reduce faith of consumers.

The course “Superfoods: myths and truths” will bring to the discovery of superfoods, such as Goji berries, amaranth and quinoa. Through biology, cognitive sciences and nutrition, positive and negative aspects of this kind of food will be highlighted, with particular attention to super features of traditional food.
