Choosing a university isn’t easy. You want a place that can make your dreams come true, educate you and provide you with the life skills and resources that will give you an edge in the world. Sapienza University of Rome is just that place. With over 700 years of history, we have been nurturing students for centuries. Sapienza, which was founded in 1303 as the Studium Urbis, is the university with the largest student population in Europe: 115,000+ students. Merging centuries of knowledge and tradition with cutting-edge research and innovation, Sapienza provides a unique environment, where students are encouraged to exchange ideas and philosophies. And it all takes place in one of the most breathtaking cities in the world: Rome.

We are a large, public and comprehensive Italian university, specializing in almost all fields of knowledge at all academic levels (Bachelors, Masters, and PhDs), with over 50 programmes entirely taught in English. As a public university, most of our funding comes from the Italian government. This enables us to keep our tuition fees very low, while maintaining academic freedom, excellent academic and research standards, and impressive international rankings in a wide range of disciplines, such as Classics (no. 1 in the world), Physics, Archaeology, and many others.

Throughout the course of the year, Sapienza also organizes a myriad cultural, social and sporting activities to encourage students to conduct a well-rounded social life. These include: The “MuSa” orchestras, choirs, and jazz ensembles; Sapienza Theatron - Ancient Theatre Group, the RadioSapienza web-radio station, and a wide range of sports facilities.
