Studio Arts & Design Study Abroad Programs in Italy:

Studio Arts & Design study abroad programs in Italy will give you a unique study abroad experience, a life-long mastery of Italian language and Italian friends for life. To realize students' potential, we integrate formal, university-level learning with practical experience, allowing students to develop new ideas, integrate them with their knowledge and skills, and apply them in their professional work.

Our Studio Arts & Design study abroad programs in Italy are offered by the internationally recognized accredited Italian Institution - Art Institute in Florence.

We offer Certificate Programs in Studio Arts & Design:

The Certificate Programs are designed to offer the students the opportunity to develop, following a complete learning path, their potential individual creativity, artistic talent and technical and professional skills. These programs provide specific skills in a range of areas, giving students a strong theoretical base on which to develop their practical work. The Certificate Programs offer two study options: the Study Certificate and the Professional Study Certificate. Students can combine the Study Certificate and the Professional Study Certificate or choose between them according to their experience and educational levels:

  • Study Certificate offer a comprehensive course structure addressing students' own professional goals. The class selection has been pre-planned in order to allow students to follow the most appropriate course sequence in the area of study that they wish to pursue. The programs are offered on a one- or two-year basis, starting in either Fall or Spring semesters. Students may also enrol on a single semester basis. Beginning students must enrol in the first semester of the first year course sequence. Students with prior knowledge of the selected field of study may be admitted to the second semester, but only after submitting a portfolio of their work to be assessed and approved.

  • Professional Study Certificates are designed for students who have a solid background in the areas of Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Jewellery Design, Restoration and Conservation, Film Production and Theatre. During the course of one year, students will have the opportunity to broaden their formative experience by participating in artistic projects, guided by instructors who are critically acclaimed professionals operating in the fields offered by the program.

    The Restoration and Conservation program offers practical field work in conjunction with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, thus allowing students to actively participate in the restoration of authentic artwork.

    Other Professional Study Certificates give students the opportunity to work individually and collaboratively on professional projects guided by industry insiders. Students applying for the Professional Study Certificate Program must provide evidence of their background in the selected area. An admissions committee will review the application and accept only those students who meet the entry requirements.

All courses are taught in English, except for Italian Language courses. In the belief that access to the language is an essential component of the experience of living in Italy for a number of months, the School requires students enrolled in Certificate Programs to take one Italian language course per semester.
