University Information

Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma – UNINT is a private university, established in Rome in 1996, originally known as Libero Istituto Universitario "San Pio V". From the beginning, the inclusion among the teaching staff of leading Italian and foreign academics, as well as professionals and personalities from the field of culture was one of the objectives of the founders; the opportunity to experience different aspects of working life and to develop an international identity were also priorities. In March 2013 the University changed its name to Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma – UNINT in order to focus more effectively on the international identity of its educational and training programmes. The University has introduced a wider range of languages (Arabic, Chinese, French, English, Portuguese and Brazilian, Russian, Spanish, and German), giving students in all disciplines the opportunity to participate in various educational activities and internships abroad. This change was promoted by the Foundation for Research into Migration and Technological Integration (FORMIT), which has managed the University since 2011 and aims to offer high-quality education, training, and management efficiency.
