For this academic year at the Vanvitelli University, there are three new degree programmes in English, two First Cycle Degree Courses and one Second Cycle Degree, highly professionalizing, and very topical compared to the objectives they propose.

First Cycle Degree Courses, the innovation is represented by the Courses in Data Analytics and Nursing

Department of Mathematics and Physics:

DATA ANALYTICS - The course is open access and is provided entirely in English. The course aims to make graduates acquire skills in theoretical and computational mathematics, inferential statistics and exploratory analysis of big volumes of data; of machine learning techniques for calculation; of methodological and applied tools used by information technology for managing databases and information systems; of programming elements; of modern software tools for data processing and communication techniques of results. Due to its international characterization, the course also includes the study of other European languages, in particular, French, being that this Course releases a double degree in conjunction with the Université Paris 13.

School of Medical Sciences:

NURSING - The course is restricted access, students must pass an exam to enrol and is provided entirely in English.  With the proposal to establish a Degree Programme in Nursing, the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli responds to the request for health care training of a multi-ethnic, non-Italian language speaking population increasingly seeking to gain access to qualified levels of study. Nursing represents a unique programme in Italy; a global training opportunity for specialized personnel from different nationalities who will be able to benefit from the training capabilities of our professors and to capably respond to the needs of a labour market that requires an ever-increasing level of professionalism. Call for application

Second Cycle Degree Course, the innovation is represented by the Course in Molecular Biotechnology

Department of Environmental, Biological and pharmaceutical Sciences and Technologies:

MOLECULAR BIOTECHNOLOGY - The course is open access and is provided entirely in English. The Second Cycle Degree Course in Molecular Biotechnology is designed to provide the cultural background of multidisciplinary biotechnologies for the production of goods and services using biological systems; in particular, the course prepares skilled graduates in the field of biotechnologies specialised in the study, prevention and diagnosis of human diseases, with particular regard to the development of innovative drugs. Cooperation with researchers of National Research Council Institutes (e.g.: Institute of Genetics and Biophysics - IGB; Institute of Protein Biochemistry) on teaching and research activities is an opportunity for graduates to acquire knowledge in a broader range of fields related to Molecular Biotechnology, and skills to operate in various areas of academic and industrial research at national and international levels.
