Founded in 1361, the University of Pavia (UNIPV), is one of the world’s oldest academic institutions. Like the UK’s Oxford and Cambridge, the University of Pavia is structured using a college system, dating back to the 16th century, with a striking historic campus. The University of Pavia features in a number of QS rankings. Ranked within the global top 561-570 in the QS World University Rankings® 2022.
Comprised of 20 colleges which all have their own particular histories and opportunities to offer, UNIPV is an open community where academic achievement, traditions, parties and sporting rivalries all have their place.
The city of Pavia is located in northern Italy, around 30km south of Milan (20-30 minutes by train), and is home to 19 museums, two cultural centers, 22 libraries, four cinemas and theatres, 10 social-cultural meeting halls, and three civic schools of music and arts. For those of you interested in sports, the University Sports Centre (CUS) in Pavia offers a wide range of courses, championships and tournaments.
The University of Pavia provides graduate students with a unique experience.
The PhD programs offered by the University of Pavia are supervised by SAFD (Scuola di Alta Formazione Dottorale), the PhD Higher Education School. Our programs cover a wide range of topics and are organized into three disciplinary groups (macro-area): Science and Technology, Life Science, Human and Social Science.
The University of Pavia is very much involved in developing new pathways that allow graduate students non only to develop their skills useful for future careers in academia, but also the abilities necessary to be active outside the University. The Board of our PhD Higher Education School is constantly engaged in improving the quality of the PhD programs and consequently the preparation of doctoral students. In particular, the School is promoting interactions between University and Industry, as well as international programs allowing our graduate students to obtain a joint degree with other European institutions. Our mission is to make sure that highly motivated students from all over the world are admitted to our PhD programs and will successfully interact with our best faculty members.
Being one of the oldest academic institutions in the world, the University of Pavia combines a prestigious history with a clever mix of cutting-edge innovation. Students have access to a vast library system and may be included in the research teams of internationally recognized laboratories.
Besides studying and carrying on research, graduate students can experience living in Pavia, a city-campus with intense cultural life, offering an experience which is unique in Italy and rare in Europe.
