Study programs in Milan range from a weekend to one week to even a few years. But how do you apply and whom should you contact?
At the time we write (2015), the city boasts 15 university-based institutions recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, at which you can obtain either a university or equivalent degree, with a choice of major in each type of subject, from sports to astrophysics.
Various centres specializing in post-diploma and post-graduate education issue degrees that are either accredited in other countries or accredited both in Italy as well as in another country, while Milan-based academies and schools issue sector-specific certificates.
Before applying, it is advisable to assess the advantages of taking a diploma or degree course in Italy. Additionally, it is important to remember to ask for information at the offices of the individual School/University regarding the legal documents required to start your study experience.
And, of course, you should consider the fact that you’re going to study in a country that might be very different from yours, from the cultural point of view.
