Carlo Bo University of Urbino

Your Campus Set in a Unesco World Heritage Site URBINO CAMPUS The University of Urbino dates back to 1506 when Duke Guidobaldo I founded the “Collegio dei Dottori”, and from its inception, it has continued to grow and develop. While the student body and faculties gradually increased and developed over time, it was under the long and fruitful presidency of Senator for Life, Carlo Bo, that the University enjoyed unprecedented growth in size and prestige, prompting the former President of the European Community Commission, Roy Jenkins, to state that “the University of Urbino is an incisive presence in contemporary thought, contributing in original ways to the cultural and intellectual life of Europe”. The University of Urbino now has around 15,000 students and is known for the quality of its teaching and research. The size and organization of the University encourage a direct relationship between students and teachers and allow students to take full advantage of all campus services and

facilities. Urbino, the ideal Renaissance city, has become the ideal city for study, a lively and stimulating campus-town perfectly suited for student life. EXCELLENCE IN RESEARCH The latest national report evaluating scientific research (CIVR, the Italian Committee for the Evaluation of Research) ranked the University of Urbino first in the areas of Chemical Sciences and Sciences of Antiquity, Philology, Literature, History and Arts. It was ranked third in the areas of Medical Sciences and Political and Social Sciences and was in the top ten among medium-sized universities for completed scientific research projects. THE HISTORIC CITY OF URBINO Nestled in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains in the northeastern part of Central Italy, Urbino is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a breathtaking, perfectly preserved historic center and fascinating history. During the Renaissance Urbino blossomed under the enlightened rule of Duke Federico da Montefeltro, a skillful statesman and enthusiastic patron of art and literature. Many leading historical figures lent their luster to the Montefeltro court, including the painter Piero della Francesca. Urbino is also the birthplace of Raphael, one of the most important painters of the Italian Renaissance. Today Urbino provides the ideal setting for a University. The old historic center houses most of the University’s faculties forming a studentfriendly campus where everything is still within easy walking distance, and locals, students and professors mix casually in the squares, narrow streets and cafés. WORLDWIDE CAMPUS The University of Urbino has developed a distance-learning program making highquality degree programs directly accessible worldwide.
