Universities in Europe Architecture

Cambridge University8

Summer is celebrated for many reasons – sunshine, holidays, time off work – but for others summer is a time for celebration as they don long black robes and throw flat black hats into the air. I’m talking about the thousands of students who will be graduating over the next few months.

However, universities are not just for students. They are often beautiful, historic buildings that add great cultural value to a city; things many travellers are on the hunt for. With this in mind here are ten of Europe’s most beautiful universities well worth visiting.

1. Oxbridge, UK

If other people can bundle the universities of Oxford and Cambridge together and make Oxbridge one locale then so can I.Oxford University Supporting my decision is the fact that both universities and cities are disbelievingly rich in handsome architecture and miles and miles of prestigious history. Highlights include The Bodleian Library in Oxford and Trinity College’s famous Wren Library at Cambridge University. A visit to either Oxford or Cambridge will leave you feeling like you stepped onto the set of a Harry Potter film, albeit surrounded by slightly older, less magic-wielding students.

Archiginnasio of Bologna2. University of Bologna, Italy

The oldest university in the world is a must-visit not only for its history and red stone buildings linked by miles of porticos, but also because Bologna is a great city for an Italian getaway. The majority of the university buildings can be found on and around Via Zamboni, which is also where you’ll find indie bookstores, coffee shops and restaurants serving up feasts at very small prices. See the university and city best from the top of one of the Due Torri, Bologna’s two medieval towers.

University of Salamanca3. University of Salamanca, Spain

Spain’s oldest university is also considered the country’s prettiest thanks to an extensive collection of attractive campus buildings including the serene School Courtyard and the Gothic Old Library. You will also find one of the city’s finest examples of the Plateresque facade Salamanca is famous for. Furthermore, the beautiful buildings in Salamanca don’t just belong to the university; the old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and among the many buildings to be admired is the Old Cathedral, arguably one of the finest European churches.

Programming Jobs Losing

Dimming career prospects have been particularly ego-bruising for people who entered the profession during the late '90s, when employers doled out multiple job offers, generous starting salaries, and starting bonuses including stock options and Porsches.
"The current situation is getting back to the '70s and '80s, where IT workers were the basement cubicle geeks and they weren't very well off," said Matthew Moran, author of the six-month-old book "Information Technology Career Builder's Toolkit: A Complete Guide to Building Your Information Technology Career in Any Economy."
"They were making an honest living but weren't anything more than middle-class people just getting by," Moran said
