University access course


Program in partnerships with Italian universities for students who wish to attend higher education in Italy.

Italy is the worldwide fashion, art, design, music (particularly for opera), engineering and architectural center, and is one of the most important countries in Europe. Italy is the ideal country in which to study, because the universities, fine arts academies and conservatories offer a vast choice of courses which are equal to other European qualifications. International students have the same right to access scholarships and students’ housing as Italian students.
