The University takes its name from the 14th Century "Turris Vergatae" that was owned by the Roman noble family of Annibaldi. In 1982, in the South-East district of the city of Rome, the University was founded by a group of brilliant professors and young fellow researchers, becoming chronologically the second public university of the city of Rome. 


The six Schools at Tor Vergata offer programmes in English at all the Italian educational levels:

The majority of Tor Vergata departments have high quality indicators in the national VQR (Research Quality Evaluation); the most virtuous are: Economics and Finance and Mathematics (both first in their categories); Enterprise Engineering (third); Chemistry (fourth); Physics (fifth).


Tor Vergata has built a strong network oh national and international companies and yearly activates so many internships that our students enrolled to the courses held in English are for the 90% of them occupied with a 6-month or 1-year contract before the graduation.

Many of those contracts become job positions and our placement rate for the MSc reaches the 100% for some courses.

Student Reviews

My Academic experience in Europe
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars
Well, it has been a good experience so far despite the difficulty, which I see as something normal. The lectures are well organised but more theoretical based than practical. Initially, some of the core courses appeared to be difficult for me but as time goes on, I started improving well.

the time I spent in the university was really intense. I really appreciated the professors-students interactions and the final theoric preparation I achieved. I would have liked to have more practical experiences in lab.
Good University in Rome

happy experience, professors of the highest professionalism and culture, the course sins of organization in the administrative part.
