At the beginning of the 1950s, a group of intellectuals established the Free High School of Historical Science. It was from this group of intellectuals that the idea of building a University was created.The project was finally and definitively achieved in 1982, when the governmental authorities gave Verona the autonomy and status of its University.
The University has strong links to the local community and looks to the future through its constant strengthening of the link between courses offered and the world of work. In the immediate future, one of the University’s principle objectives is to continue with its building programme in order to create an improved and welcoming environment.
The University of Verona offers Undergraduate, Graduate and Doctoral Programmes in a wide range of disciplines.
The advancement of knowledge is fundamental to the life of a university and the research projects of the University of Verona aim to provide opportunities for learning, innovation and planning at the highest level.
The University maintains a constant relationship with the world of work through internships and work experience programmes. For companies, an internship represents an opportunity to interact with young people in possession of the latest scientific knowledge. The Spazio Stage, a virtual space designed to create an effective interface between supply and demand, promotes the activation of curricular internships (for students) and extracurricular internships (for graduates in the first 12 months following graduation.
For non-EU students residing abroad, the International Student Desk can help with university pre-registration through Embassies, registrations, enrolments and any possible programme changes.
Before pre-enrolling at an Italian Embassy or Consulate, non-EU students residing abroad should check for available places in the programme(s) they are interested in.
Italian Universities do not generally have a campus. International students can find an accommodation in Verona at the student residences or in private flats to be shared with other students.
