The Istituto Universitario di Lingue Moderne (I.U.L.M.) was founded in 1968 by the Fondazione Scuola Superiore per Interpreti e Traduttori, under the inspiration of Senator Carlo Bo and Professor Silvio Baridon. From the very beginning the idea behind the project was to satisfy the demands of the labour markets based on analyses of current trends.


The mission of IULM University is to train and teach professionals capable of taking on the challenges and grasping the opportunities emerging from international markets and scenarios, while also shaping men and women aware of their own being and worth.


The key to success is research: to understand how to adapt the university’s range of training opportunities and to fix realistic goals for its graduates and for the companies who will reap the benefits in the near future. This is why we invest so much energy and so many resources in research. Over the years, allocations have grown consistently and now include scholarships, research benefits and PhD scholarships as well as funds for recruiting young researchers.

The University is on the American model and stands out as an ultra-modern complex, technologically advanced and equipped with structures and spaces to provide space for studying, research and also for being together.

I found this university really welcoming and I enjoyed attending languages courses. I had the opportunity to study for a short period in Germany thanks to the Erasmus project and this helped me a lot to improve German.
