The University of Perugia, one of the oldest in Europe (established in 1308), is located in the Umbria Region, in the “green heart of Italy”, famous for arts, music and natural landscapes. Today organized in 16 Departments and several Centers of excellence, it has about 23,000 students, 1,100 professors and researchers and 1,100 staff. The quality of its research, education and services is certified by the 2015/2016 Censis ranking (Center for Studies on Social Investments), that sees the University of Perugia first, for the third year in a row, among all large-sized Italian Universities.
All 17 PhD programs are international and share research projects with top Universities. Currently, there are about 50 research groups that received grants from the European Research network.
Thanks to about 400 Erasmus+ agreements throughout the European Union and to about 150 agreements with extra EU universities, students may receive mobility grants to spend up to 12 months in foreign countries. The quality of this service is certified by the European Commission with the ECTS label for excellence.
Through our agreements in all productive sectors, foreign students may also acquire credits through stages and internships at local firms or local branches of international companies.
