About SNS


Scuola Normale Superiore is a public institution of university education characterized by unique features. Students are selected only on the basis of merit, lessons are held in seminar form, and an intimate link connects didactic and research. Student life is deeply integrated, and great space is devoted to international exchanges, according to the best models of higher instruction in Europe.

In an unique environment professors, researchers and students cohabit, didactic and laboratory activities are carried on, and cultural events of all types occur.

The activities of the Scuola are traditionally divided into two main areas: the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Sciences. The didactic offer encompasses an undergraduate and a doctoral level.

The greatest resource of the Normale is the quality of its students. They are selected according to merit through a specific public competition; they live in a completely gratuitous collegiate system; they follow an educational path based on a blend of study, research, and personal experiences.
