Research is carried out, often in collaboration with other universities, in departments which possess all the facilities required by modern scientific centres: large well-stocked libraries and state-of-art scientific laboratories and apparatus (electron microscopes, mass spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, etc..)
Some centres have been recently built, whereas others are housed in buildings which have been completly renovated. Most departments are situated in the centre of Camerino, leading to extensive interaction between the university and the life of the city.

Teaching System
The Italian University system is mainly based on direct teaching through lectures.
Many of the subjects also include practical session, tutorials, seminars, laboratory work, training periods etc..
Although there has recently been a notable increase in the number of students, the teacher-student ratio in our university is excellent. This makes it easy to attend lectures and meet the staff and enables students to use the university’s research facilities during practicals and for the preparation of their graduation theses.
