International

In an increasingly interdependent and globalized context, the University of Macerata looks at the wealth of opportunities for future growth, dialogue and exchange available around the world.

Hence, the University encourages all the forms of strategic collaboration that can provide students and staff with international training and research opportunities, giving them the tools required to successfully meet the challenges of a highly competitive world with increasing transnational contacts.

The University offers several mobility and international cooperation schemes, with more than 20 bilateral agreements and over 350 international partnerships within the Erasmus framework. Students and staff taking part in these projects foster their academic development, become involved in international research networks and contribute to creating a more dynamic and inclusive notion of citizenship.

The University awards yearly hundreds of Erasmus and non-Erasmus grants for study periods both within and outside Europe (including  USA, UK, Australia, Canada, China, Russia, Albania), both for study and work placement.

Thanks to its strategic geographical position and centuries-old history, the University of Macerata enjoys privileged collaborations with Eastern European countries (Russia, Poland, Ukraine), in the Mediterranean area (particularly Albania, Libya, Slovenia, Turkey, Tunisia) and with China. At the same time, the University works to increase valuable collaborations with excellent entities in Africa, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, the USA and in the Indian subcontinent. Many students from distinguished international universities choose to conduct part of their academic studies at the University of Macerata. Every year, UNIMC organizes tailored courses as for instance the Summer Schools for Princeton University (USA) and Murdoch University (Australia), as well as Summer and Winter Schools on Italian language and culture for international students.
