What is VIU?

VIU luoghi263


Venice International University is something unique in the academic world:

a group of Universities from all over the world sharing a common campus on the beautiful Island of San Servolo, in the Venice lagoon.

These Universities devise study programs collegially to prepare their students to face the global challenges of today:

- sustainable development;

- climate change;

- ageing;

- urban growth;

- global ethics;

- cultural heritage...


These global issues require a new kind of academic preparation.

Students who choose to spend a term studying at VIU are taught to move across disciplines and through cultures with a flexibility of approach, an open mind and creative thinking.
