Our Mission

We have been looking ahead for 600 years. It is not only the tag-line of the University’s communication logo, but also one of the objectives which we consider a priority. The University of Ferrara looks ahead and the future can only lead to internationalisation.

"We have been looking ahead for 600 years".  This is not only the tag-line of the University’s communication logo, but also one of the objectives which we consider a priority.

The University of Ferrara looks ahead and the future can only lead to internationalisation. Being part of an International scientific and academic community does not mean uniformity and loss of identity but, on the contrary, sharing the high standards of teaching and research of the world’s best universities while maintaining one’s own individuality and excellence. Opening up entails communication with the rest of the world, finding common ground and creating breeding grounds for innovation, technological development and cultural and scientific growth without losing sight of one’s own roots.  The presence of teaching and research facilities throughout the city makes Ferrara a huge open campus which is safe and welcoming – the ideal place to study or stay. Ferrara campus is not just a university within a city, but rather a city where everything revolves around the University -  it is an integral part not only of urban fabric but also of its activities and characteristics.  Promoting and strengthening the image of the University of Ferrara abroad therefore entails promoting and stengthening the image of the area and the city, which is a Unesco World Heritage site.
