Italy has been a centre of learning for thousands of years and is still home to the oldest university in the western world. Whether you're interested in unearthing the country's rich classical history or working within high-tech modern research facilities, a Masters in Italy can offer a unique study abroad experience.
Italy combines a rich academic heritage with a modernising outlook. The University of Bologna isn't just one of the oldest in operation - it's also the location at which a historic declaration on standardising European higher education was signed, giving its name to the ongoing 'Bologna Process'.
Studying a Masters degree in Italy therefore means earning an internationally respected qualification in the country that defined European university education in the modern era.
Italy's universities offer Masters degrees in all major subject-areas, but the country also offers some unique research and training opportunites. You might find yourself investigating the history and preservation of Italy's wide range of heritage sites or learning about the ecology and agriculture of its meditteranean climate.
Whatever your degree subject, studying abroad in Italy will be an educational experience in and of itself. From Roman antiquities to Renaissance architecture; from volcanic mountains to sunny vineyards - few countries have as much to offer international students.
Italy has always attracted students and scholars and continues to do so today. Nearly 80,000 students study abroad in Italy, making it one of the most popular international study destinations in Europe.
Most Italian Masters degrees take two years to complete and the Italian academic year runs from October to July.
Tuition fees for international students in Italy are usually between €2,000-3,000 per year. Some English-language programs may be more expensive, with fees closer to €5,000.
Most Masters degrees in Italy are taught in Italian, but an increasing number of 'international programs' are now offered in other languages, including English. Most universities will provide some form of Italian language support and training for foreign students.
Citizens of EU and EEA countries can normally study a Masters in Italy without a visa. If you are an international student from another country, you may need to apply for a student visa. You can do this at an Italian embassy in your home country - or ask your prospective university for support.
Our dedicated study guide has lots more information about Masters study in Italy, including advice on the Italian university system, application requirements and detailed advice on student visas and immigration.

The Italian and international business models require practitioners able to tackle the project not only from a technical and productive perspective but, above all, from a strategic and structural point of view. The Master in Design - Innovation, Strategy and Product aims to prepare a new generation of designers ready to consider any variable as a design problem, either through an analysis of the market and the needs of contemporary users, either imagining future scenarios, in favor of innovative solutions.

The traditional user-centered (UCD) approach modifies the concept from "designing for" to "designing with" people, adapting today's socio-economic and production system in evolution.
Career opportunities - The Master in Design - Innovation, Strategy and Product prepares practitioners with expertise in the fields of design and innovation, able to enter the role of Designer within the creative/design and strategic/managerial field, design agencies, companies, self-employment and self-production realities and institutions.
Degree title - The course is recognised by MIUR (Ministry for Education, University and Research) as an Academic Master Level I credit rated at 60 credits allowing students to progress further in their studies in Italy or abroad
The issue of Contemporary Art Conservation is at the center of debates and disagreements. The diversity and originality of used materials, the ephemerality and perishability of some art works, the use of new media and, last but not least, the immateriality of some performances and happenings make this field a continuously and rapidly evolving ground where well prepared specialists ready to deal with this wide and inestimable patrimony are definitely missing.
Starting from here and from the individual peculiarities of each Campus, Accademia di Belle Arti Aldo Galli signed a partnership which proposes an ambitious Higher Education project.
Career opportunities - The Specialist in Contemporary Art Conservation can work either in conservation or in restoration, boasting a theoretical and practical knowledge specifically connected to the contemporary times. The employment sectors include galleries, public and private museums, public institutions for conservation and land-use planning, exhibition setup and art transportation businesses, studio and analysis labs, university departments of Art History, restoration and conservation companies.
