The student experience at LUMSA, which is located in the centre of Rome near Piazza San Pietro, offers a unique experience for many international students. In the 2015-2016 academic year the University welcomed over 279 international students as part of our various mobility programmes. In addition we enrolled 248 international students, 85 of these as new starters, attracted by the specific content of our degree programmes and/or the chance to study in English.
LUMSA is also one of the few Italian universities with major international accreditations, which means we can assess and enrol students based on international achievements, such as ACT (American College Testing), GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test), GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) and SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test). We also accommodate students from universities with which we have Erasmus+ arrangements, or collaborative arrangements for universities outside Europe.
International students may apply for accommodation in the student residences near to LUMSA facilities, and we can also assist them in finding private accommodation in Rome, if required. For more information, please go to the LUMSA Servizio Alloggi (accommodation service) page.
