Ferrara is a safe and welcoming open Campus with teaching and research facilities conveniently located in the centre as well as just outside the Renaissance walls.

“Da 600 anni guardiamo avanti”: looking ahead has been a priority of the University of Ferrara for six centuries.

The University of Ferrara continues to move forward by promoting internationalisation. Fostering an international scientific and academic community involves a multiple perspective: the pursuit of the highest teaching and research standards strengthened by a focus on specific areas of excellence and thriving on the presence of a strong historical and cultural identity. Ferrara features a latticework of streets, squares and buildings that mingle with teaching and research facilities located in the centre as well as immediately outside the Renaissance walls. Owing to its unique urban configuration, the town presents itself as an open campus closely interacting with the community at large.
