Setting aside the two Italian universities catering exclusively to foreigners (the so-called Università per stranieri), UNIMORE ranks 12th in Italy in attracting international students. Its position ranks even higher if the children of immigrants are not counted. These encouraging statistics are well above the national average: 6.3% of the student population consists of international students, compared to the Italian national average of 3.9%.

One of UNIMORE’S primary objectives is to consolidate and develop the influx of students traditionally arriving from several countries in Eastern Europe (Albania, Russia, Romania), Africa (Republic of the Cameroons, Ghana) and North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia).

The following provides basic information for students from some specific countries. Please note that this page is constantly being updated, so you may not find the information you need. For details, please contact us at
