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.
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.
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.

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.

Constantly aware of the need for suitable spaces to study, work and conduct research, the university offers new, comfortable and prestigious venues to the academic community and local citizens.
I really enjoy the courses at my university, the professors are competent and classes are stimulating. The facilities are taken care of and it is an overall pleasant place to study at. There are also quite a few possibilities to study abroad.
I've started to attend the university few months ago, so I don't really have a solid opinion yet, but I'm quite satisfied with my teachers but I feel like something is lacking, such as the amount of activities and project in my university and also there's too much "theory" and less "practice".
The University was tough, there was a lot to study and I learned a lot of things. We did a lot of theory but without much practice, and that is one of the major flaws in the Universities in Italy and the main reason why I decided to do my masters program abroad. Anyway the level of the University is high and I learned how to study hard, and I notice this when I went in...
