Founded in 1361, the University of Pavia (UNIPV), is one of the world’s oldest academic institutions. Like the UK’s Oxford and Cambridge, the University of Pavia is structured using a college system, dating back to the 16th century, with a striking historic campus.

The University of Pavia features in a number of QS rankings. Ranked within the global top 550 in the QS World University Rankings® 2015/16, UNIPV is particularly competitive in the fields of linguistics, civil and structural engineering, pharmacology, life science and medicine – as highlighted by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2016.

Comprised of 20 colleges which all have their own particular histories and opportunities to offer, UNIPV is an open community where academic achievement, traditions, parties and sporting rivalries all have their place.

Originally created around schools of law, humanities and medicine, the University of Pavia now offers 83 courses in:

  • Engineering and architecture
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Natural sciences
  • Medicine
  • Pharmacology
  • Health professions
  • Psychology
  • Law
  • Literature
  • Languages and philosophy
  • Economics

  • Sports sciences
  • Musicology
  • Tourism

The city of Pavia is located in northern Italy, around 30km south of Milan (20-30 minutes by train), and is home to 19 museums, two cultural centers, 22 libraries, four cinemas and theatres, 10 social-cultural meeting halls, and three civic schools of music and arts. For those of you interested in sports, the University Sports Centre (CUS) in Pavia offers a wide range of courses, championships and tournaments.

Tuition fees at UNIPV vary based on the student’s family income and country of origin. All students must pay an initial deposit of approximately €700 (~US$800) – subject to later reimbursement for lower-income students and students from developing countries.
