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 of Modena dates back to 1175, a few decades after the founding of the University of Bologna, making it one of the oldest universities in Italy and the world. It was established by the city of Modena, which financed professors’ contracts through local taxation. UNIMORE is composed 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 ranked among the top 8 universities in Italy for its high level of research, according to the most recent independent research assessment sponsored by the Italian Government (MIUR-CIVR). It offers state-of-the-art facilities with internationally sponsored research activities and with the two technopoles of Modena and Reggio Emilia, UNIMORE is part of the High Technology Regional Network.
