Istituto Europeo di Design (Italy)

Italy, Milano / Rome / Turin / Venice    See a map

Overview

Established in Milan in 1966 by its current President, Francesco Morelli, IED offers thorough, effective training, based on the theory and practice of design culture, to young people who want to embark on creative careers in Fashion, Design, Visual Arts and Communications.

IED is now the only international design training network. It offers three-year post-secondary school courses, advanced courses and Masters.

Milan, Rome, Turin, Venice, Madrid, Barcelona and São Paulo house the four Schools of Design: IED Fashion Lab, IED Design, IED Visual Arts and IED Communications.

Although all the schools and all the campuses apply the same training method and have the same underlying objectives, each one has its own strong, autonomous personality, deriving from roots that delve deep into its host city’s hinterland, production fabric and culture.

Altogether, some 9000 students from more than 90 different countries enroll in courses at IED every year. The school where they study is an international one, where the quality of the lecturers and the strong bonds with the business community that have always been at the focus of the IED training method enable creativity to blend with design culture.

 

Country

About Italy

Italy is situated on the West Southern border of Europe; the peninsula, along with its surrounding islands, stretches out southwards almost to the coasts of North Africa, while eastwards it faces the Slav-Balkan territories.

The land known as Italy today has been the cradle of European cultures and peoples, such as the Etruscans and the Romans. Italy’s capital, Rome, was for centuries the political center of Western civilization, as the capital of the Roman Empire.

Centuries later, Italy would become the birthplace of the Renaissance, an immensely fruitful intellectual movement that would prove to be integral in shaping the subsequent course of European thought.

Modern Italy is a democratic republic and a developed country with the eighth-highest quality of life index rating in the world. Italy enjoys a high standard of living, and is the world’s 18th most developed country.

The Northern part of Italy has hot summers and cold winter, although the temperature rarely drops below freezing during the daytime. The South enjoys mild winters and long, dry, hot summers. Mountain areas such as the Alps and the Apennines have long, cold winters long and short, cool summers.

Italians are warm, welcoming people who love to relax, celebrate and socialise with family and friends. And celebration and relaxation usually take place around the table either at home or in a restaurant, where they can enjoy the traditions of the Italian cuisine. Italians have a passion for eating but also for talking.

About higher education cost in Italy

Universities and other Higher Education Institutes establish their own fees but in the case of university education there is a legal minimum fee for enrolment and maximum level for student contributions to costs and services, which cannot exceed 20% of state funding.

The average fees a student has to pay is somewhere between 850 euro and 1,000 euro per year since this varies from one university to another and also depends on the chosen course of study. Private universities are clearly more expensive.

Admission to “master universitari” and other specialisation courses also have much higher fees. Doctoral students who receive a grant from the university do not pay fees, but non- grant holders are required to pay the fees, which will vary again according to the university chosen.

If you are a citizen of a EU member state you are eligible to work in Italy without a work permit. It is very tricky to find a job in Italy if you do not speak Italian. You may look for a part-time job from a local newspaper, the Internet, recruitment agencies, employment offices etc. As a student you should keep in mind not to work more than 15-20 hours per week. Otherwise you may neglect your studies.
