The Unimore Sport Excellence programme is a project dedicated to young high-level athletes who wish to best combine competitive sport and university commitment, and allows access to the so-called “dual career”, that is, a system of benefits and tools that the University provides to promote the completion of a university career and a competitive one at the same time. These tools include the Diploma Supplement, upon completing their studies at UNIMORE, which is issued to participants in the programme to certify their dual career.

Since 2018, the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and its UNIMORE SPORT EXCELLENCE programme have been part of UNISPORT ITALIA, the National University Sports System, i.e. the network of Italian universities whose aim is to enhance the potential of sport as an effective and transversal tool for training, research, innovation, and improvement of well-being and of the university experience in general.
