Università degli Studi di Pavia, one of Europe’s oldest universities, has over 23 000 students and 1120 members of teaching staff. International cooperation plays a prominent role within university life thanks to the 170 research and mobility agreements which have been signed with universities from around the world. The importance of international work is also reflected through the university’s participation in various networks such as EMUNI, EADI and the Coimbra Group. The university is heavily involved in initial training for secondary school teachers, which is enhanced further through institutional agreements and participation in research projects with foreign organisations. A unique student support programme named the Fund for Cooperation and Knowledge provides grants for students from developing countries who wish to study in Pavia. This is funded both by student tuition fees and by the university itself.
