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.


With its 4 Faculties, First Cycle Degree Courses, Second Cycle Degree Courses, numerous Master's Courses and post-experience courses, the University offers a complete range of courses at all levels.


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.
