The University of Salerno (Italian: Università degli Studi di Salerno, UNISA) is a university located in Fisciano and in Baronissi. Its main campus is located in Fisciano while the Faculty of Medicine is located in Baronissi. It is organized in ten faculties.
The University of Salerno offers degrees in 10 faculties:
The mission of the University of Salerno is to carry out research and educational programmes, developing links with the surrounding area while respecting the environment, with the aim of creating, enriching and, at the same time, offering a scientific, cultural heritage to students, enterprises, institutions and in general to the whole community.
In keeping with this mission and core values, which are a constant reference point, the institutional goals are as follows.
The library "biblioteca Eduardo R. Caianiello" offers students over 400,000 volumes and constitutes one of the major collections of books in Italy.
In May 2015 the University of Salerno saw the establishment of a new research institute, the International Centre for Studies and Research "Mediterranean Knowledge",composed by 14 Research Units located in universities of the Mediterranean countries. The ICSR, that has its administrative office at the University of Salerno, aims at favouring research and dissemination of knowledge about the most important topics of the Mediterranean Basin. For that purpose it publishes the book series Mediterranean, Knowledge, Culture, Heritage, theJournal of Mediterranean Knowledge and a series of Working Papers. The ICSR, moreover, periodically organizes national and international conferences.
The origins of the University go back to the VIII century AD thanks to the foundation of the celebrated Salerno medical school, an authoritative, prestigious, sanitary institution, which remained important throughout the whole Medieval Age. In addition to teaching medicine, the school also taught philosophy, theology and law. However, according to some historians, it was only after the second half of the IX century with the constitution of the Lombard principality of Salerno that it was possible to determine the establishment of an institute, which trained and produced doctors. A direct link across the centuries can be hypothesized between the traditional Salerno medicine of the Lombard Age and older medical practice of the Greek –Roman period which puts Salerno in first place, rather than its contender Bologna, for having the oldest university established in Europe.
Having obtained its first legal recognition in the Constitutions of Melfi (1231) and the title of Studium in the time of Conrad II, the Salerno medical school received its first statute from Charles of Anjou (1280). Later, Queen Jeanne formally recognised the legal value of the certification given to graduating doctors (1359), thus breaking the monopoly held until then by the Study of Naples, set up by Frederick II in 1224.
As time went on the Salerno medical school had its highs and lows, linked to the fortunes of the Kingdom of Naples, until 1811 when Joachim Murat, intent on reorganizing public education in the Neopolitan realm, decided to close the University of Salerno and turn it into a “Real Liceo.” These high schools were really proper university schools located in the largest cities of the realm and all dependent on the University of Naples. With the Bourbon Restoration of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, this university system remained practically intact, and indeed, immediately after the Restoration, with a decree on 14 January 1817, King Ferdinand I of Bourbon established that in Salerno, as in Bari, Aquilla and Catanzaro, the “Reali Licei” would teach law and notary work, anatomy and physiology, surgery and obstetrics, chemistry and pharmacy, legal medicine and other sciences.
The teaching activities of the Salerno school went on for centuries but were finally suppressed shortly after the unity of Italy when, in 1865, the “Real Liceo” was closed and its Convitto became the Liceo-Ginnasio, “Torquato Tasso”.
This happened because the Sabaudian government of the newborn Kingdom of Italy extended its organization of universities to all the new states following their annexation. Naturally, even the different university system of the ex-Kingdom of Two Sicilies had to be completely reformed and conform to new national politics. It was almost a century before the University of Salerno was re-established.
In 1944, a university institute of arts and education (Istituto universitario di Magistero) was established in the city, on the express wish of Giovanni Cuomo, and in 1968, this became part of the state system and was called the Facoltà di Magistero of the University of Salerno. In only a few years, this Faculty of Arts and Education was joined by several other different faculties, which formed the basis of an expanding university structure. The Faculty of Literature and Philosophy was instituted in1969, the Faculty of Economics and Commerce in 1970, the Faculties of Mathematics, Physics and Natural Sciences and of Law in 1972, the complete course of Engineering in 1983, the Faculty of Pharmacy in 1991, that of Politics in 1992, Foreign Language and Literature in 1996 and finally the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery in 2006.
Information about current rules and regulations is available at the Ministry of Education website with the latest provisions. International students, just as local students, must take the compulsory non-selective or selective entry tests on the dates established in the calls, in case of courses with restricted entry.
Entry tests at the University of Salerno are of two kinds:
Pre-enrolment pf no EU citizens resident abroad
The Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research has published the dates for pre-enrolment of non-EU students resident abroad. Deadline is 24th July.
Please note that this procedure takes place at the Italian diplomatic representantives in the country of residence of the candidate. Qualifications can be accompanied in alternative by ENIC-NARIC certification, by certification of official foreign institutions or by the declaration of value.
No EU citizens resident abroad may enrol in the first or subsequent years (in the case of a shortened course), according to the number of available places established yearly by the Departments for each course (see the Ministero dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca website). Applicants holding five or four-year secondary school qualifications obtained at an Italian school abroad or with an international diploma may apply, through the competent Italian diplomatic authorities, outside the specific contingent.
The pre-enrolment application must be addressed to the Italian diplomatic authorities in the applicant's country of residence or where he obtained the qualification, during the period established yearly in the Ministry's notice.
In particular it is necessary to enclose the original of the secondary school qualification for the legal translation and relative declaration of equivalent value ("Dichiarazione di valore").
The secondary school qualifications considered valid for enrolment in Italy are those obtained at the end of a period of schooling of at least 12 years. Applicants attending their last year at secondary school are accepted with reservation.
For diplomas obtained after less than 12 years of schooling, it is necessary to attach an academic qualification proving that students have completed university courses according the number of missing years.
The above mentioned applicants may enrol outside the specific contingent, in the first year course or subsequent years, submitting directly to the university, during the enrolment period (from 15th July to 30th September), the following documents:
The University verifies that the documentation is complete and admits applicants to the Italian language test held every year at the beginning of September, on a single national date. Italian Ministry provisions give examples of exemption to the Italian language test .
When taking the test, applicants must show a valid passport with specific entry visa for "study purpose", a residence permit or relative receipt issued by the competent Questura (Police Department) certifying application for the permit.
University of Salerno is a non-profit public higher education institution located in the rural setting of the medium-sized town of Fisciano, Campania. Officially accredited and/or recognized by the Ministero dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca, Italia (Ministry of Education, Universities and Research, Italy), Università degli Studi di Salerno (UNISA) is a large coeducational higher education institution. Università degli Studi di Salerno (UNISA) offers courses and programs leading to officially recognized higher education degrees such as bachelor degrees in several areas of study. International students are welcome to apply for enrollment.
The formal system for accreditation of State University programs in Italy began in 1933. This law accredits a set of Universities, faculties, and courses. It involves two separate but correlated programs that were instituted at the same time: First, each University went through a four-step process to adopt and approve its own Regolamenti Didattici di Ateneo (RDA). The RDA establishes the rules for the organisation of teaching at the university, including establishing the requirements and objectives of each degree program, the curricula, credits awarded and requirements and objectives of examinations.
The RDA's were developed in consultation with representatives of the individual university, the regional coordinating committee (CRC), employers and the National University Council and are ultimately approved by the Ministry of Education (MIUR). Second, a series of formal, objective standards was adopted as minimum requirements for approval of any programs.
Since 2009, the Fisciano campus has beenequipped with a complex of highly efficient residence halls for students and faculty. An important result in terms of urban and social planning, the Fisciano residences count 780 beds. They are made up of one-room flats and ready-furnished mini-apartments, all equipped with air conditioning, kitchenette, telephone, internet connection, satellite TV input. Accommodation comprises additional services (reception rooms, study rooms, meeting rooms, a breakfast room, lounges, automatic laundries, cafés, a projection room, a gym). Most of the one-room flats are reserved for "fuori sede" students (i.e. students residing outside the metropolitan area of Salerno) who have been awarded accommodation. Occupancy lasts at least 10 months. Mini-apartments and one-room flats which are not reserved for fuori sede students are given to other guests for a fee according to A.DI.S.U. regulations. Some housing units are specially equipped for students with disabilities; others are intended for foreign students and teachers for the purpose of fostering internationalization.
The catering service, run by A.DI.S.U., is one of the flagships of Salerno University. The service is provided in two facilities open from 12.00 am to 3.00 pm Monday to Friday. The main facility has approximately 1300 seats and is located at the Fisciano campus. Students can choose a traditional lunch, paying according to their family income bracket, or supplement or change the composition of their lunch with extra items and various drinks.
The University Center for Orientation and Mentoring (Centro di Ateneo per l’Orientamento e il Tutorato - CAOT), which is related to the Office for the Right to Education, has multiple objectives. They include: fostering well thought-out choices regarding the student’s university career; offering practical tools during the course of study; facilitating graduates’ entry into the world of work. In order to carry out actions to ensure the continuity between school and university, fruitful relations have been established with about 450 secondary schools from the University’s catchment area. Orientation and mentoring have been upgraded by projects funded by the European Union from the European Social Fund. The CAOT supervises many initiatives and provides useful services to students.
The Center provides first aid and specialist examinations. Specialist care, as comprised in the regional screening, is free for Salerno University students.
The Information Desk provides reception and assistance services for enrolling, enrolled and leaving students all year round. The desk also provides information via telephone or email and hands out the University Guide.
The University Language Centre (CLA) is a language and audiovisual service centre which promotes the learning of European languages with integrative, practical, communicational and instrumental purposes, also fostering the study of LSPs (Languages for Specific Purposes)
The University Library Center is divided into two central libraries - one for the Humanities and one for the Sciences – both located at the Fisciano campus. A third library, run by the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, is located at the Baronissi campus.
The Great Hall, dedicated to prof. Vincenzo Buonocore, is provided with multimedia equipment and has 700 seats available. It hosts happenings and academic events.There are many study rooms for students, some equipped with computers.
The Theater, located in the same complex as the Great Hall, was designed by Filippo Alison. Conceived as a multifunctional facility, it has a capacity of approximately 300 seats, a fully equipped stage, a foyer, and dressing rooms for artists. The University Theater was started in 2005 and has since then hosted theater seasons, music events, workshops, exhibitions, meetings and lecture-shows which have contributed to a more varied education for students, and promoted fruitful forms of interdisciplinarity and experimentation within research and teaching. The theater plays a crucial role in UNISARTE, a major center where various visual languages (cinema, art, theatre, new media) meet new technologies and businesses, with the University developing new forms of knowledge and innovative professions. In this light, collaborations and exchanges are promoted with organizations, institutions and foundations.
Salerno University promotes many musical events featuring international musicians along with students, teachers, and members of the administrative staff. The music associations on Campus are “Musicateneo” and “Seventh Degree”.
Sports facilities on Campus are run by CUS (Centro Universitario Sportivo - Salerno), which organizes a number of activities at the Fisciano and Baronissi campuses.
