University of Perugia


The University of Perugia was founded in 1308 when Pope Clement the 5th granted universal validity and recognition to its degree courses, one in Law and another in General Arts. Imperial recognition was conveyed in 1355 by Emperor Charles I. Nowadays, research, education and consultancies are organized in 14 Departments covering nearly all fields of study.

The European Commission awarded the University the prestigious ECTS label for excellence in the application of the European Credit Transfer System confirming the high quality of the expanded international endeavors. The internationalization commitment is based on working agreements with more than 380 EU institutions of higher learning, and 130 cooperation agreements with European and extra-European universities. Several degree programs confer double degrees or European degree.  


About 50 research groups receive grants from the European Research network. The research and education conducted in the Departments is enlarged by the activities of specialized institutes and centers, such as the Hospital in Veterinary Medicine and three internationally recognized centers of excellence: the Centre for Innovative Applied Nanostructural Materials in Chemistry, Physics, and Biomedicine (CEMIN), the Beer Research Centre (CRB), and the Centre for Innovative Applied Scientific Technologies in Archaeological and Art Historical Research (SMAart).
