Erasmus Programme


The University of Florence has always placed special emphasis on fostering relations of collaboration with foreign universities and on the process of internationalisation. This has become a priority and strategic aspect in the life of the university, affecting all areas, from research and teaching to the organisation of studies and the mobility of teachers, researchers and students. There are over two hundred and fifty collaboration agreements with other universities in 68 countries.

Since 1999 the European Union has acknowledged the status of the University as a European Union Centre of Excellence (a title awarded to valorise the specialisation of the University in studies connected with European integration). For some time study courses have been available leading to joint qualifications with other universities, research doctorates in particular.
