The School of graduate studies "Galileo Galilei" is an
advanced educational centre open to Italian and foreign students. Its
main objective is to train highly qualified PhD students in Applied
Physics, Chemical Science,
Earth Sciences, Physics and Mathematics.
Pisa has a well-established and renowned tradition in basic sciences,
and its scientific environment is extremely lively and stimulating. The
Departments of Chemistry, Computer Science,
Earth Sciences, Physics, Mathematics
and Applied Mathematics of the
University of Pisa are
highly ranked internationally, with highly reputed staff,
well-organised structures, and sophisticated instruments. These
departments have established connections and exchanges with foreign
universities and international research centres,
in particular with the institutions based in Pisa. Relationships also
exist with technologically advanced companies.
The PhD courses in Applied Physics, Chemical Science, Computer Science,
Earth Sciences, Physics and Mathematics
hosted by these departments, have
been providing an excellent training for graduate students for many
Therefore Pisa offers a unique and challenging environment for Italian
and foreign graduate students and young researchers.
One of the main objectives of the School is to promote the exchange of
experience on scientific, cultural, and social grounds between the
individual PhD programmes, so as to
strengthen their educational impact. Traditionally the five
graduate programmes already in existence welcome the best
students from all over Italy and from abroad; one of the aims
of the "Galileo Galilei" School is to attract graduates from
other Italian and foreign universities even more effectively.
This will be achieved by means of both exchanges with foreign
institutions and grants reserved for graduates from other universities.
