University of Modena and Reggio Emilia - UNIMORE


The University of Modena dates back to 1175, a few decades after the founding of the University of Bologna, making it one of the oldest universities in Italy and the world. It was established by the city of Modena, which financed professors' contracts through local taxation. 


UNIMORE is composed of 14 Departments, offering a wide range of degree programs at the undergraduate level, right up to doctoral studies in most disciplinary areas, from the humanities and social sciences to engineering and technology, and from physical and natural sciences to medicine and life sciences.


UNIMORE is ranked among the top 8 universities in Italy for its high level of research, according to the most recent independent research assessment sponsored by the Italian Government (MIUR-CIVR). It offers state-of-the-art facilities with internationally sponsored research activities and with the two technopoles of Modena and Reggio Emilia, UNIMORE is part of the High Technology Regional Network.


Whether it is formally part of your degree program or you are looking for some relevant work experience, the University has set up agreements with several enterprises.

How it works

  • Working hours depend on the needs of the enterprise.
  • The University will cover all insurance expenses.
  • Generally internships are not paid, but the enterprise might agree to cover some expenses such as transportation and meals.
  • Contact the placement office (ufficio stage) of your Department in order to choose a suitable enterprise. Alternatively, you can find an enterprise which agrees to set up a work experience for you.
