The Umbra Identity

Umbra students distinguish themselves with a fervent desire to explore the less travelled paths and immerse themselves in their environs. For our students, its difficult to think of a more inspiring backdrop than Perugia – a city that attracts tens of thousands of Italian and international students. If the Umbra identity describes you, then you will be right at home studying with us.
