Seven centuries after its foundation, the University of Camerino (UNICAM) remains young in spirit and continues to make major contributions to the economic, social and cultural life of the town, its region and beyond. Aware of the increasing standards in higher education, it was the first university in Italy to introduce quality control procedures in its institutional activities according to the international norms UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 by the French certifying company GROUPE AFAQ. Internationalisation is another strong feature of UNICAM. Out of 8,000 registered students the percentage of international students coming from 43 different countries has reached 10%, more then three times the national average.
At its 5 University Schools and 4 campuses (Camerino, Ascoli Piceno, Matelica, San Benedetto del Tronto), UNICAM offers study programmes at all levels, Bachelor, Master and Doctoral, also in English. An excellent professor-student ratio (1 professor for every 25 students) is a fundamental element in guaranteeing quality of studying at UNICAM. UNICAM also boasts of resources continually developed by new and upgraded buildings and equipment, including a large number of research laboratories, rich libraries, modern sports facilities, dormitories for over 800 students, and various student services and facilities.
