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.

And it all takes place in one of the most breath-taking 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, PhDs, Foundation Year, and many more).

As a public university, most of our funding comes from the Italian government, which 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 & Ancient History, Archaeology, Physics and Astronomy, as well as Environmental Studies, Nanotechnology, Cellular and Gene Therapy, Design and Aerospace Engineering, and many other.

Throughout the course of the year, Sapienza also organises 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 very wide range of sports facilities.


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: over 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.


    Sapienza is among the top Italian and international Universities, according to the most authoritative international university rankings such as QS, Times Higher EducationARWU, CWUR, US NEWS and many others.

    According to QS Rankings by Subject, Sapienza is also the only Italian University to boast first place in the world for Classics and Ancient History, no. 10 worldwide for Archaeology, and 21 subjects overall in the top 100, including Physics (no. 41 worldwide), for which Sapienza professor and alumn Giorgio Parisi was recently awarded the Nobel prize.
