About

History

In the late Middle Ages, with the papal bull of 1339, Verona was officially conferred the status of studium generale by Pope Benedict XII, with three branches: Law, Medicine and Art. However, it was only in the late 1950s that Verona properly established its own university. 

Education

The University of Verona offers a range of degree programmes in different disciplines, including Economics, Law, Arts and Humanities, Communication, Foreign Languages and Literatures, Education, Philosophy, Social Science, Medicine, Exercise Science, Mathematics, Biotechnology and Computer Science. 

There are over 60 programmes, comprising various undergraduate and postgraduate degrees held at different campuses to best serve the community's needs. The programmes are becoming increasingly international, with individual modules, and even some entire courses, taught in other languages.

Research

The University of Verona's research strengths are rooted in its active involvement in both pure and applied cutting-edge academic research, as well as in the diversity of the disciplines covered. The fundamental structures for academic research are the university departments. There are four macro-discipline areas that oversee three departments in Arts and Humanities, three departments in Law and Economics, four departments in Life and Health Sciences, and two departments in Natural Sciences and Engineering.

Library services

The Arturo Frinzi library is housed in a former church built in 1596, dedicated to San Francesco di Paola. It was transferred to the state and in 1987 became central library of the Humanities, Economics and Law departments. The library is dedicated to Arturo Frinzi, an illustrious figure on the Veronese economic and political scene who donated his own volumes to build the University of Verona.

Sabrina rated 4 out of 5 stars
Languages have always been one of my passions, so when it was time to decide which course I wanted to apply for, the Bachelor's Degree in Languages and Cultures for Editing and Publishing was an instant match. Thanks to this programme I had the chance to enhance my linguistic competence in English and Spanish and to gain a better knowledge of the cultures represented by these languages. Moreove...

The difference with my origin country is about the organisation of the courses and also the exam, which are, most of them, oral.
