Università degli Studi di Salerno
The Universita degli Studi di Salerno has existed in some form for over a millennium. The current University of Salerno (known as UNISA) began life in 1944 becoming a state university in 1968. Since then it has become a major Italian university with faculties being added over the years and the number of students growing rapidly.
Today it has over 37,000 students. The majority of the university buildings are spread across the Fisciano and Baronissi campuses in the green, rural surroundings of the Irno valley. As well as academic and administrative buildings the campuses boast museum, laboratories, restaurants and coffee bars ensuring there is plenty to do between lectures.
The exchange agreement between King's and the University of Salerno allows for 1 3-month placement for a postgraduate research student per year.
Important: Final decision on your application rests entirely with the host institution and students will need to obtain a 60 percent in their end of year exams in order to be able to go on the exchange programme. This exchange is open to PGR students from the Department of Physics.
