Milan is situated in the north of Italy, roughly 45km from the border with Switzerland. It is the second largest city in Italy by population and the capital of the Lombardy region. Milan is also one of Italy’s most important higher education hubs, with 14 universities, various other institutions and over 180,000 resident students.
Milan was one of the leading cities of the Italian Renaissance, renowned worldwide as a centre of the arts. This legacy is still evident today: the city’s landmark buildings and structures include the Milan Cathedral (decorated with paintings by Leonardo da Vinci), the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and the Torre Velasca. Art buffs can view da Vinci’s most famous mural, The Last Supper, at the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan.
Present-day Milan is one of the most important global centres for the fashion industry, home to some of the world’s most famous designers such as Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Versace.
Postgraduate student life in Milan means living and studying in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities with a proud intellectual heritage. You’ll be able to explore the city’s famous buildings, art collections and fashion shows as well as sample the local cuisine or check out two of Italy’s most successful football teams. The proximity of the Alps and the French and Swiss borders will also make it relatively easy for you to travel to other parts of Europe whilst studying a Masters programme in Milan.
Milan’s oldest university is the Politecnico di Milano, established in 1863. It specialises in engineering, architecture and design and is recognised as one of the best universities in the world for work in these areas.
In addition to the Politecnico di Milano, Milan is home to several other universities and higher education institutions, including the University of Milan (a leading centre for science in Italy), Bocconi University (usually regarded as one of the best business schools in Europe) and the Milan Academy of Fine Arts (Italy’s largest specialist art and design university).
The prominence of Milan’s fashion industry makes it a popular destination for budding designers from around the world. Outside of fashion, Milan has a robust, high-tech economy with strong sectors in financial services, engineering, energy and publishing. Companies based in Milan include Nestle, Luxottica and Sky Italia.
