The University of Cagliari (UNICA), founded in 1620, is a public state University with about 25,000 students and over 1,900 teaching and technical administrative staff. It is located in the island of Sardinia-Italy, in the middle of the Mediterranean, and is one of its largest organizations. Given its geographic location, it has consolidated relationships and exchanges with the southern Mediterranean countries, at both students and staff levels.
It is a multidisciplinary university offering an interesting and complete education through 6 Faculties (Biology and Pharmacy; Engineering and Architecture; Medicine and Surgery; Sciences; Economics, Law and Political Sciences; Humanities) and 15 Departments.
The community of students is enriched by an international mix of students coming from foreign HEIs whose numbers are increasing every year. UNICA’s students have many opportunities to study abroad, in other leading universities thanks to more than 1000 partnership agreements.
The University of Cagliari is member of EDUC – European Digital UniverCity, one of the first 17 „European Universities“ funded in 2019 by the European Commission with the aim to increase the international competitiveness of European higher education through a shared, integrated, long-term joint strategy for education with links to research and innovation, and to society.
