About

The University of Rome Tor Vergata was founded in 1982. It is ranked among the Top 100 less than 50 years old Universities in the world by both QS© and Times Higher Education©.

A public university with competitive tuition fees and modern student facilities, in little more than 30 years “Tor Vergata” has become one of the most Important Italian universities: about 40.000 students per year enroll in 112 graduate programmes (Bachelor, MSc or MA, single-cycle), 160 post graduate courses, 50 specialisation schools and 31 PhD programmes, taught in Italian or English.

The Campus is about 40 minutes away from the historical city centre of the “Eternal City”, Rome, by means of the subway system, and 20 minutes away from the peaceful Castelli Romani, notorious for their vineyards and fresh hillside landscape.

The six Schools (Economics, Engineering, Humanities, Law, Medicine and Sciences) are located on a vast 600 hectares Campus. Each School has its own library, teaching and research facilities, reading rooms, laboratories, canteens and green areas where students can experience a real campus life.  The Medical School is part of the important University Hospital compound, the Policlinico Tor Vergata (PTV), where students can afford health care and physical emergency assistance.
