The establishment that we call University today began to evolve in Bologna in the late 11th century, when masters of grammar, rhetoric and logic began to devote themselves to law.
The Studium in Bologna is the first home of free teaching, independent from ecclesiastic schools. Irnerio’s law school marks the birth of Western universities.
The numerous, highly diversified courses listed in the University of Bologna’s programme catalogue – including first and second cycle degree programmes and specialist postgraduate studies – guarantee the personal and professional development of students. The value and quality of the courses offered is borne out by the increased number of enrolments in recent years.
Medicine and philosophy, hard sciences and mathematics, engineering and economics are the major subjects of a university that becomes an undisputed international authority in all fields of knowledge.
