TRADITION AND INNOVATION. The University of Turin (UniTo) is one of the most ancient and prestigious Italian Universities. Hosting almost 80.000 students (a.y. 2021-2022) and with 120 buildings in different areas in Turin and in key places in Piedmont, UniTo is one of the largest Italian Universities and can be considered as “city-within-a-city”, promoting culture and producing research, innovation, training and employment.
COURSES AND RESEARCH. UniTo carries out scientific research and organizes courses in all disciplines (except for Engineering and Architecture). Some of the degree courses are unique in Italy, such as Military Strategy, Biotechnology, Sport Sciences, Restoration and Conservation. The University of Turin has a remarkable research tradition in traditional subjects such as history, philosophy, law, economics and medicine but it is currently branching out into important modern sectors, such as food science, social politics, IT, performing arts and communication sciences. Its Medical Diagnostic, Biosensoristics and Nanotechnologies research centers are amongst the best ones in Italy. Moreover, for the academic year 2023-24, UniTo offers 26 program degrees totally taught in English.
A STRONG COMMITMENT. The University makes an active stand on social issues, such as environment, drugs, equal opportunities and rights of people with special needs. It also acts at an international level through partnership agreements with India, China, developing countries in Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean Area and with a number of international organizations. The Regional Agency for the Right to University Education (EDISU) - an institution offering assistance to students - awards scholarships to university students based on prerequisites of merit and need: the amount of the scholarships depends on the student's financial situation.
WHY CHOOSE TURIN? Because it is a lively, people-oriented city and boasts a wide variety of cultural resources: historic buildings, world-class museums and galleries, as well as numerous exhibitions and fairs. The city’s parks and rivers together with the nearby mountains and lakes provide a great leisure environment.
