Founded in 1175, the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE) has a longstanding tradition and is considered one of the best universities in Italy for teaching and research. It is ranked 2nd among public universities according to Italy’s leading financial daily.

It is located in the heart of one of Europe's wealthiest and most dynamic regions, which is world-renowned for its production of mechanical parts, engines, sports cars (e.g. Ferrari and Maserati) as well as for its agro-food sector, ceramic tiles and manufacturing industries.

UNIMORE is located in two cities with the highest quality of living standards in Italy. UNIMORE, which has just over 19,000 students including 3,500 postgraduates, is large enough to offer all the facilities one would expect from a major university (well-stocked libraries, computer rooms, free internet connection and study support services) but small enough to retain a personal and friendly learning environment.

The University is comprised of 14 Departments, offering a wide range of degree programs at the undergraduate level, right up to doctoral studies in most disciplinary areas, from the humanities and social sciences to engineering and technology, and from physical and natural sciences to medicine and life sciences.

UNIMORE is committed to high-quality research. It is ranked among the top 8 comprehensive universities in Italy for its high level of research, according to the most recent assessment of the Italian Ministerial Committee for the Evaluation of Research (CIVR).

Ongoing research is conducted by university departments representing all the principal disciplines and by numerous departmental and interdepartmental centers involved in specialized research activities. Many of them are nationally and internationally recognized. The University is part of the High Technology Regional Cluster, involving all the Universities in the Emilia-Romagna Region, and offers cutting-edge facilities for technology transfer in the sectors of mechanical engineering, mechatronics, advanced materials, ICT in business applications, and regenerative medicine.

UNIMORE has over 300 international exchange agreements and cooperation programs to encourage students to actively interact in a globalized world. The University offers numerous facilities and services designed specifically for its international students.
