Sapienza University of Rome, founded in 1303 by Pope Boniface VIII, is one of the oldest universities in the world and the second largest University in Europe, greatly able to manage its outstanding numbers:120.000 enrolled students, 8.000 of them coming from outside Italy and 1.000 incoming and outgoing exchange students each year, 11 faculties which cover any kind of scientific and social area with their 63 departments, more than 4.700 professors and researchers and 4.300 administrative and technical staff.
Sapienza offers a vast array of courses: around 260 degree programmes at Bachelor and Master level, 80 PhD courses, one to two year long lasting professional courses and Specialization Schools, Master degree programmes entirely taught in English (including a full 6-year long lasting degree in Medicine and Surgery), plus many English-taught single courses in various disciplines.
Sapienza is also one of the few Italian Public Universities always ranked in major international rankings, active member of several international networks such as UNICA, UNIMED, the SANTANDER GROUP and many others and therefore plays a fundamental role in the academic international scenario.
Committed to the importance of the internationalization of education and training, to the expertise and know-how sharing, to the collaboration in institutional and capacity building, Sapienza University is engaged, since a long time, in an extensive range of international cooperation projects and actions with almost every geographical area of the world: from Asia to the Balkans, from Australia to the Middle East, from America to the ACP countries.
This long lasting experience has brought Sapienza to an extensive knowledge of the international cooperation that made our University able to develop a wide and now tested range of management and operational skills in the field.
