Galilean School of Higher Education


The Scuola Galileiana di Studi Superiori (Galilean School of Higher Education) is a school of excellence that combines traditional university education with a series of special in-house courses comprising seminars and lectures by visiting professors of international fame. Divided into three categories, Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences, the Scuola Galileiana di Studi Superiori illustrates the techniques and methods used for scientific research, and then affords students a deeper insight into the field.

Only 30 students are admitted. They are, however, guaranteed free board and lodging, a place on two foreign language courses, plus personal tutoring to help them plan their university careers. Admission to the first year at the Scuola Galileiana di Studi Superiori is subjected to passing an entrance examination. If accepted, students are then required to maintain a high average for their entire degree course.

In addition to the 30 above-mentioned places, the Galilean School of Higher Education recruits up to 4 highly-motivated international students, intentioned to enroll in a 2-year program towards the Master Degree (Second Cycle Degree, in Italian Laurea Magistrale). These students are admitted at the 4th year of the Galilean School.
