Once an important political center and the home of many prominent figures in the Italian Renaissance, the historic walled city of Urbino sits in the mountains near the tiny Republic of San Marino. The birthplace of Raphael, its centerpiece is the 15th-century palace built by the Duke of Montefeltro. Located 30 miles west of the Adriatic beach towns, Urbino has in many ways retained its medieval character, with narrow, crooked streets lined by shops and overhanging apartments. The city is surrounded by picturesque vineyards, forests and mountain streams.

The University of Urbino grew out of the Collegio dei Dottori which was already active around the middle of the fifteenth century and authorized to act as an appeal court for suits involving the Duchy of Urbino. At the request of Duke Guidobaldo da Montefeltro, this college was officially recognized in a papal bull of 1507, issued by Pope Julius II of the della Rovere family, and entrusted with the administration of penal and civil law throughout the Duchy. In 1564, Pope Pius IV granted the Collegio "leave to crown two poets laureate annually, to confer degrees in canon and civil law, to award academic qualifications in the arts, in medicine and in the other faculties recognized by the University articles, and to appoint notaries."

Today the University of Urbino is a state university. It numbers 10 faculties and about 17,000 students. Its numerous departments are housed in buildings of outstanding architectural interest, and it offers students and scholars a wide range of courses and research opportunities. Urbino provides the ideal setting for a university: the ancient city centre is on a human scale; everything is still within walking distance and there are numerous opportunities for meeting local people, teachers and students.

ISEP-Exchange programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.

ISEP-Direct programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.
