UNINT. The mission of the Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma (UNINT - ) is to be a benchmark in basic academic education and to be advanced in the linguistic, economic, managerial and political fields. This is achieved through a modern educational offering which also keeps abreast of advances and changes in the international context.
The UNINT educational model is based on three pillars: internationality, which is the ability to understand and address the challenges of an ever-changing world; a close connection with the labour market, which is achieved through innovative education programmes; and which is designed to respond to the demands of the global community and new professions; and the quality of university life, which features personalised attention focused on meeting student needs and a close relationship with the academic staff.
In particular, UNINT, and all of its programmes, are characterised by a highly distinctive offering in the field of language learning. Students have a choice of 8 different languages - Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Portuguese and Brazilian, Russian, and Spanish ; furthermore, the number of courses taught in English is constantly growing. To ensure regular support for the international vocation that is an integral part of the University’s mission, UNINT also continuously engages in offering exchange programmes with foreign universities and partnerships with companies and public and private institutions. Currently the University has over 800 internship and traineeship agreements across Italy and abroad, and over 80 cooperation and exchange agreements with both European and non-European universities.
UNINT also carries out higher-education activities, through a wide range of master's and postgraduate courses on translation, healthcare and journalism. There is an active School of Political Science, which organises meetings and seminars featuring key protagonists in the national political and cultural scene.
