city of Salerno, which provided the most important source of medical
knowledge in Western Europe at the time.
Even today Salerno’s beautiful historic centre bears signs of this
glorious past with its medieval charm intact.
“Salerno rhyme of the winter, oh! sweetest winter.
Salerno rhyme of eternity”
These were the last verses written by the renowned Salernitan poet, Alfonso Gatto, about his city…

Voices from the past ….
Two among the most important
archeological sites in the world are
nearby Salerno: Pompeii, where
time stopped on 24 August 79
during Vesuvio eruption, and
Paestum (Greek period) although
less known, visiting it is like
engaging an extraordinary journey
through time: a walk through its
temples at sunset is unforgettable
…
its Museum, where you can see the
famous Tuffatore fresco…
The “Schola Medica
Salernitana” achieved its
utmost splendour between
the tenth and thirteenth
centuries, during which its
fame began to spread more
than locally.
Salerno gained the title of
"Town of Hippocrates"
(Hippocratica Civitas or
Hippocratica Urbs).
People from all over the
world came to the "Schola
Salerni" in the hope of
recovering, and students to
learn the art of Medicine.

NON SOLO SOLE 2010 XXII Edition
AEGEE Salerno organizes summer courses of Italian
language and culture for foreign students. These
courses are based on an innovative structure: tuition in
class is combined with an afternoon program of
cultural trips and activities.
AEGEE Salerno is an independent
European student association. Its
members include many former
Erasmus students.
The AEGEE office is situated
inside the International Relations Erasmus Office.
The main aim of the association is
to help international students
coming from different European
universities to find accommodation
and to solve any problems which
might arise during their stay.
It also cooperates with the
International Relations - Erasmus
Office to organise the welcoming of
incoming students.
AEGEE
Etats Généraux des Etudiants de l’Europe
Incoming students can apply for the halls of residence or can be helped to
find accommodation in private rented rooms by “AEGEE Salerno”, whose
main purposes are:
To assist incoming students to find suitable accommodation;
To promote and speed up their integration process.
“AEGEE SALERNO” realizes these objectives collaborating very close with the
IRO and every morning students belonging to AEGEE are at students’
disposal, organizing:
guided tour through the University Campus to make incoming students fully
aware of all services and facilities offered by the University (residence,
Canteen, Wi FI, library, sport facilities, medical centre, bank and post office);
Erasmus Action Weeks (orientation days) and a mailing list through which
EM students, Erasmus students and local students may be easily contacted
for whatever reason;
Sport and recreational activities, excursions and weekly meeting;
Linguistic students’ exchanges (tandem);
Trip and cultural visits to several Italian regions.
Italian Intensive Language Course
The University of Salerno organizes
Italian intensive language courses free
of charge for the international student
mobility. The aim is to give students a
basic competence in Italian in order to
guarantee them a better understanding
of courses.
The course is organized in two modules
of 30 hours each, for a total amount of
60 hours, at the beginning of the first
and the second terms.
After attending the course, students will
receive a certificate with a final mark
and 12 credits, if they pass the test.
An entrance test will establish to which
level students will be assigned to.
Tell me about Erasmus
Raccontami Erasmus
The University of Salerno promotes each year a competition
in order to award a prize for a piece of creative writing, Video or Photo Album.
The competition is open to all Erasmus students, PhD students of the University of
Salerno and any foreign students studying at UNISA who have
been awarded an Erasmus grant during the past years.
Any foreign student who is not in an Erasmus mobility programme may also
enter for the competition by writing a text describing his/her experience at a university campus.
The competition requires candidates to write an original text
(a diary, short story, theatrical piece) or to present a short Video or a Photo album,
inspired by a period of study spent abroad with an Erasmus grant.
Winners will receive a certificate and a sum of money during a special public
ceremony.
Winners from abroad will receive a € 250,00 refund for travel expenses and two
nights free board offered by UNISA.
“Un altro disegno nacque la
sera dalle finestre di
Salerno ed esso mi
risparmierà ogni
descrizione di una terra
deliziosa e fertilissima.
Chi non sarebbe stato
disposto a studiare in
questa cittadina nel tempo
in cui vi fioriva una
università?”
W. Goethe
Viaggio in Italia
22 marzo 1787
“Another picture was made
in the evening from the
windows in Salerno and it
will save me giving any
description of this
delightful and fertile land.
Who would not have
wished to study in this
town in the times when a
university flourished
there?”
W. Goethe
A Voyage to Italy
March 22nd, 1787
See you in Salerno, then…
Thank for your attention
