Admission to the Faculty for foreign students
The Department of Architecture was born with the idea of becoming a University of the Mediterranean which fosters the registration of foreign students both of the European Community and of Countries outside the European Community.
Lessons are held in Italian, but due to a great number of foreign teachers other languages may be used, English in particular.

Life in Alghero
The Department of Architecture, Design and Urban Planning of the University of Sassari is located in Alghero and was the first Architecture Faculty in Sardinia. Our “campus” is situated in the beautiful historic centre of the city at 36 km from the main campus in Sassari.
The friendly and informal campus life in Alghero is a reflection of the community at large; Alghero is a tolerant, lively and exciting place. Alghero, capital of the Coral Coast, is one of the most coveted goals of the northwest coast thanks to its 80 km of sand beaches, isolated inlets and charming cliffs. Alghero is located on the north-western coast of Sardinia and has a population of approximately 42,000 people. It is a very pretty city that combines an untouched and completely pedestrian medieval town centre with beautiful beaches and clear seas. Originally a fishing village, it was seized by the Genoese towards the end of the 12th century and became an important fortress. The city then came under control of the Catalans in the 14th century and still has many Catalonian characteristics, like the language, to this day.
Alghero is an historical town with a great urban quality, well connected with the Italian continent and other international destinations. The Airport is approximately 10 kilometres to the North West of the town centre and is directly connected with Rome, Milan, Pisa, Bologna, Turin and several important European cities, such as London, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Madrid, Bremen and Paris.
Although Alghero may not offer accommodation in a students’ residence, finding accommodation is quite easy. During the ten months of the courses there is a great offer of apartments for rent at reasonable rates and in Fertilia (5 km from Alghero) there is a Youth Hostel.
The Faculty offers the canteen service and many restaurants and bars offer special prices for the students of the Department.
