Based in Bolzano, Italy, the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (unibz) is a private university known for applying multilingualism in its instruction, seminars, and research. It uses three languages—Italian, English, and German—as a means to widen the professional opportunities of its learners. Free language courses are even offered so students can pick up a second and third language.

unibz’s academic programs are organized into five faculties, namely economics and management, education, computer science, design and art, and science and technology. It also conducts some of its research in three competence centers, whose fields of focus include regional history, tourism and mobility, and school inclusion. Besides traditional classes, the school dedicates its educational activities to seminars, workshops, lectures with distinguished speakers, and lessons that require the practical application of skills and knowledge.

Aside from the Bolzano campus, unibz has two other campuses in Bruneck and Brixen, respectively. They are characterized by superb architecture, with the Brixen campus receiving an architecture award in 2005. The institution also has an expansive library network and an inclusive workshop for digital fabrication, on top of running its own science publication, Academia, which is co-produced by the research group EURAC.

Founded on October 31, 1997, unibz was established as an internationally oriented university that promoted multilingualism. Maintaining its ideals, the school has grown to take in over 4,000 enrolled students, more than 600 professors and researchers, and more than 200 administrative personnel as of 2020. It offers over 30 undergraduate and postgraduate programs, the most popular of which include economics, engineering, social sciences, education, natural sciences, and design.

unibz welcomes a large international contingent. More than 15% of its students and around 30% of its lecturers are members of the international community. To foster global and inter-regional collaboration and advance the future careers of its students, the university has partnered with local and international organizations, including the World Manufacturing Foundation, the University of Innsbruck in Austria, and the University of Trento in Italy.

As for its research efforts, unibz has conducted over 900 projects ever since its founding. Meanwhile, its Faculty of Computer Science is recognized by the European Union for its high research activity. The school also has its own research information system, called Boris, which can be accessed exclusively by its researchers.

unibz believes in the free exchange of ideas and espouses respect for democratic principles. As such, it aims to eradicate language barriers and cultural differences for the betterment of local, regional, and global societies. The school also hosts several student organizations that foster growth outside academics and research.
