The University of Foggia
The University of Foggia was founded by decree of the Ministry of University and Research on 5th August 1999. Since the beginning the university, at training and research level, has proved to be dynamic and innovative. One of its top priorities is the internationalization of academic relationships and of research. The five main Departments (Agriculture, Economics, Law, Arts and Philosophy, Medicine and Surgery, Education) have contributed to make the University of Foggia a lively cultural centre which attracts foreign students every year. The scientific community of the University of Foggia is composed of: 173 researchers, 103 associate professors and 95 ordinary professors. The administrative personnel amounts to 376, while there are more than 11,000 students. The Division for International Relations of the University of Foggia, since 2001, has been engaged in promoting and fostering its academic collaborations with Universities and enterprises at local, national and international level. Several agreements have been signed with European and Third-Country Universities and Organizations in order to provide the University of Foggia students and graduates with the opportunity to spend time periods abroad on study and/or training purpose.
