The Scuola di Alta Formazione (SAF = School of Advanced Studies) was established in November 2005. It encompasses and organizes all the PhD courses offered by our university.

The goal of the School is to promote excellence in PhD studies: it defines the objectives, the operational procedures and criteria that ensure the scientific quality and professional opportunities of each course.

The School is a point of reference for multi-disciplinary research activities in our university and a gathering point for students of various disciplines. It promotes seminaries, conferences and extra-curriculum activities. It also supports interaction and exchange with other Italian and international universities.
