Bari is the capital of the Italian region of Puglia and the center of the metropolis of Bari. A prime location for your medical studies in Italy, the student city of more than 326,000 inhabitants, is one of the most important ports and college cities on the Adriatic and has long been considered an insider tip for many travelers. Given the picturesque location on the “heel” of Italy and the magnificent old town, this is hardly surprising.

As with so many cities in Italy, the long history contributes to Bari’s unique charm: Centuries of occupation, including by Arabs and Normans, have contributed to the development of exceptionally diverse architecture. The difference between the old and the new part of the city is also interesting: the old town resembles a labyrinth of many winding alleys with countless small shops. On the other hand, the new modern city, with its splendid townhouses, luxurious boutiques, and majestic squares, is spacious – this is also where the imposing main building of the College of Bari is located.

In addition to the old town, Bari’s special highlights include the promenade Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, the Sanctuary of San Nicola, built between 1087 and 1106, and the historic Cathedral of San Sabino. Also worth visiting are the Petruzzelli Theater on Corso Cavour and Castel del Monte, 16 km away, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Even though Bari is smaller than the big metropolises, the southern port city can score in many areas.


With around 60,000 students, it is a young, vibrant city with a lively campus and nightlife. The cost of living is significantly cheaper than many other Italian metropolises. The weather is warm and sunny for months on end. There is no shortage of things to do given the many beaches and excursion options – not to mention the excellent southern Italian cuisine you can enjoy on every corner here. If you study medicine here, you will enjoy pure joie de vivre at the same time.

The University Of Bari Aldo Moro Medical School

The prestigious medical school of the University of Bari was founded in 1924 along with the Faculty of Pharmacology and the Faculty of Law. The University’s vision for medical studies in Bari is always to provide excellence in innovative education, good care, and biomedical research – all in a Mediterranean environment.

The course is similar to the standard Italian medical curriculum in Bari. Teaching will consist of lectures, patient demonstrations, clinical skills, seminars, distance learning, self-study, and special sessions with foreign teachers belonging to a Network for Excellence in Medical Education. The strength of BEMC is based on small classes, all courses taught in English, an excellent mix of theory and practice, an international environment, and a global campus network.

In addition to teaching, an important focus of the Faculty is scientific research. Bari’s research centers on medical studies are highly interactive and well connected with other departments, universities, and research centers.
