Ratio of teaching
The ratio of teaching staff to students of around 1 to 10 enables the teaching of seminars, with less emphasis on lecture-style teaching and more on discussion and debate. Students are expected to make reports on their study and research activities and to discuss them with their teachers and fellow students, making for a continuous research and learning process.
In addition to the lessons, during the academic year the two faculties arrange conferences and seminars on specialist topics and those of a wider interest. Generally, scholars from Italy and abroad are invited to teach the seminars.
These activities are meant not only for students and scholarship holders but also for a wider audience of scholars and enthusiasts.
