History and accreditation[edit]

The university was founded in 1999 by former Italian politician Vincenzo Scotti. It opened in Italy as a branch of a Maltese university.[4] It was the first foreign university authorized to operate in Italy.[5] On 4 July 2007, the Minister of Education issued the decree following the Lisbon Convention of 1997 and the laws and acts of the Italian Government which recognize and approve of the degree requirements of the Link Campus.[6] 21 September 2011, the institution has also been part of the Italian university system,[7] losing its connection with Malta.
