The University of Ferrara offers a unique historical environment. Magnificent reminiscences of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance live on in palaces, houses, churches, museums, squares, courtyards and alleys. Far from being shrouded in the past, Ferrara is a cyclist- and pedestrian-friendly sustainable town where young people can experience a high quality of life, take advantage of well-maintained infrastructures, and pleasantly blend in. Fostering innovative views of the future supported by deeply rooted cultural traditions is a primary goal of the University of Ferrara, which offers a broad range of BA and MA degrees and PhDs in the sciences and the humanities. The whole town is a lively campus thriving on the interaction between national and international students.
