Italy is known for many of the most wonderful things in life; wine, great food, fashion, architecture, art, film, literature, and of course, the delightful Italian language. Italy also has a rich history of higher education and the country has been a leader in developing and adopting new standards for European higher education.

Since 2005, Italy has used the three-cycle degree system, awarding the equivalent of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. The master’s degree is named “Laurea Specialistica (LS).” More than 100 types of degree programs are available.

Admission to master’s programs requires a first cycle/bachelor’s degree and competency in Italian. Some programs, such as education and arts, also require entrance examinations. Since admission procedures vary, prosepctive students should review the requirements for each program.

Tuition at public universities is low, beginning at around €1,000 per year, although master’s programs tend to run somewhat higher, and tuition at private institution is much higher. A typical master’s program requires two years of full-time study and 120 ECTS credits. However, scholarships are widely available for both Italian and international students and are offered by each individual institution.

The Master course in Transportation Design offers people with a great passion for cars the chance to engage strongly in car design techniques. It takes students to the core of the design world, making them learn about innovative thinking and how to approach, develop, and finalize the design of a car exterior and a car interior.

The city offers the chance to get the whole network of Car Designers to come to IED sharing their abilities with our students for classes, lectures, workshops, or for recruiting young talents.

Fashion styling is today both a great opportunity and a complex challenge. Fashion Stylists and Communicators have the privilege and the responsibility to read and interpret a brand or a product respecting its identity yet pushing the boundaries, so to design a world around it and tell the most engaging story ever. The Master in Fashion Communication and Styling trains key figures who deal with the evolution of new media and the crucial role of visual communication today. They are able to embrace more aesthetics at the same time, to read how fashion matters today for society, to destroy the rules and re-write them. Having a strong cultural background, students complete their training by acquiring project management skills, so as to be ready to bring value to fashion products through all the aspects of communication. They practice on three thematic projects designed to be used on digital media, creating contents such as images, videos, editorial projects and composing the outfits. -
