Università di Messina


The University of Messina has an ancient tradition going back more than 500 years. Today it is a young university, constantly projecting itself into the future. In the most recent national evaluation of research quality, UniME was voted as having demonstrated the best performance. Additionally, the number of enrolments has been constantly increasing since 2015. Furthermore, UniME currently ranks as the second Southern Italian University for its quality of teaching.

Internationalization programmes are at the centre of the UniME development policy. The University welcomes students from 27 foreign countries and numerous visiting professors and researchers. This is a natural vocation for UniME because of the location of Messina.

Messina, a city of 240,000 inhabitants at the centre of the Mediterranean, holds hospitality as an important cultural value. It is a modern city that takes its energy from the sea which it overlooks. Today, it is one of the most popular Italian cruise ship stops.

Studying at the University of Messina is a unique experience. Facilities, services and an ample educational offering allow students to follow paths of excellence (some of which are entirely in English) in a context where cultural enrichment and entertainment are assured.

Tradition and innovation intermingle in the four different centres that house the 12 departments of UniME, among modern classrooms and studying areas, libraries that contain ancient texts, labs, clinics and a sports centre that takes up 135,000 square meters. We never get tired of growing, and we are ready to welcome you in the very best way.
