Description

There has been a university in the Italian town of Salerno for over a millennium. A medical school, the Schola Medica Salernitana (described by some historians as Europe’s very first university and certainly the most important medical school in the middle ages), was founded in the prosperous trading town in the 8th century.

By the 10th century the school was drawing recognition for the quality of its doctors and by the 11th students were coming from across Europe, Africa and Asia to study there. By the 12th century the Holy Roman Emperor stated that no doctor could practice medicine in the Holy Roman Empire without having first passed examinations at Salerno.

The original medical school closed hundreds of years ago, but Salerno is still a place of learning. The current University of Salerno (known as UNISA) began life in 1944 becoming a state university in 1968. Since then it has become a major Italian university with faculties being added over the years and the number of students growing rapidly.

The university currently has around 15 departments offering a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses to students from across Italy and the wider world. The university offers a number of double-degrees with partner institutions from around the world and wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses are taught in English.

The University of Salerno (UniSa) is one of the biggest universities in Italy in terms of numbers of students. It features a huge campus and all buildings have been named and coloured in order to reflect the faculty which they belong to. Some of the departments, like DIEM (Computer Engineering) and DIFARMA (Pharmacy), are peak performance in Italy and some of their teachers have published many important articles. Still, I'd say that this university focuses more on research than on teaching, trying, as much as possible, to prepare graduated students to PhD rather than to find a job. In my department (DIEM) I would definitely remove maths-focused courses from the last years of the degrees (especially the master degree) to put some more trending topic courses in this field.

The University of Salerno is a very beautiful and contemporary campus with more then 30 faculties and it is growing very fast. Salerno may be a small city but has hundreds of opportunities; its University represents one of those. Our campus is a modern facility and everything is built together: faculties, rooms, libraries, restaurants, cafeterias and canteens etc.. One of the most important activities of our Uni is the organization of the Erasmus Plus programme and everything regarding its fulfilment. The office who takes care of the Erasmus Programme is called "International Relationships Office". It works perfectly thanks to the people who work very hard in there for the achievement of the programme. We count 300 Erasmus students incoming this year, and the number is increasing every academic year. In the same workspace our University has given a space to the AEGEE-Salerno association who works side by side with the office helping, during the academic year, the International Office, with the incoming and outgoing students. I became a member of AEGEE-Salerno in 2012 and since then I grow up a lot thanks to this great association who gives you the opportunity to travel, learn, work, meet hundreds of people, grow up as a person and a worker and live the most exciting experiences of your student life.
