Milan is synonymous with cutting-edge fashion, and is also internationally renowned as a center for interior, industrial, graphic, and product design. Filled with the world's premier fashion and design studios, the city provides students with an outstanding opportunity to explore the present and future of design in Milan's international environment. Studying in a city that hosts some of the world's top design and fashion shows will allow students direct exposure to working design professionals who are producing some of the finest and most cutting-edge work in their respective fields. In addition to exploring Italy's righ design heritage, students will be challenged to develop their own creative voices and to explore new ideas, approaches, and methods.
Students studying design in Milan will enjoy daily life in a dynamic, modern, international city. Milan (Milano in Italian), the "second city of Italy," located on the plains of the northern province of Lombardy and surrounded by an arc of mountains and lakes, is a world-renowned, international center for fashion, design, finance, industry, and calcio (soccer). It has great museums, a huge castle, one of the largest Gothic cathedrals on earth, and one of the world's most famous paintings (Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper). The circuit of annual fashion shows, design fairs and exhibitions in the city attracts many international visitors and celebrities. Despite its work-oriented persona as Italy's economic powerhouse, Milan has many hidden gems: apart from teh discount designer outlet stores, you'll have time to discover the Italian dolce vita (sweet life) in many outdoor cafes around the city.
The majority of students who study abroad say that one of the most valuable aspects of living in a European city is the opportunity to travel to other Europena cities. Milan's geographical location allows easy access not only to all major Italian cities, but also to major European centers; the Swiss border is less than an hour away. Students can ski in the Alps in the winter months and enjoy Lake Garda, Como, and other famously beautiful Italian lakes in warmer times.
