The University of Udine was founded in 1978 as part of the reconstruction plan of Friuli (a region in the North-East of Italy) after the earthquake in 1976. Its aim was to provide the Friulian community with an independent center for advanced training in cultural and scientific studies. Udine and its University are a point of reference in a region that is historically a meeting place and crossroads of different worlds and cultures.
The university offers a master program in Economics held completely in English and several programs held in English and Italian. The list includes master programs in Computer Science, Engineering,Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Viticulture, Information Technologies
Students will be evaluated individually by the Didactic Commission upon review of every student’s past career. Those who may be admitted will have to apply formally through the Italian Embassy in their own Country of residence (between May and June each year; there is only one intake each year, in Fall). Once the visa is granted, students can get to Italy to be enrolled.
The numbers of university master credits (CFU) in English varies from a minimum of 24 to a maximum of 120 per degree course. The aim is to further increase the number of international students and staff, including visiting professors. A special Italian language and culture intensive summer course is offered to foreign students. Requirements and evaluation for these programs will be reviewed on a case-by-case scenario.
For the majority of the programs, students pay only the university taxes (variable amount depending upon the student family income, ranging from 370 € to 1,875 € per year). Tuitions are payable when the student matriculate into the program in Italy (no application fees). International students may also apply for regional scholarships according to the local administrative laws ("Right to Study"); regional scholarships may cover the whole cost of studying in Udine.
