Study in Italy

If you decide to study in Italy, you will most certainly be impressed by the country’s historical heritage. Indeed, Italy’s capital, Rome, was once the political center of the Western civilization. Throughout the centuries, Italy has also played an influential role in Europe’s culture and society, being considered birthplace to the Renaissance, a cultural and intellectual movement that began in Northern Italy by the 14th century to later spread to the rest of Europe.

Whether you are seeking to enroll in a Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD degree or a summer study abroad program in Italy, you will find a wide range of courses that will surely fit your educational needs and personal expectations.

Italy is one of Europe’s most complex and alluring destinations. A modern, industrialized nation, with an artistic and architectural legacy that few other countries can rival, it’s also a Mediterranean country with a southern European sensibility, where traditional attitudes still prevail. Thriving small businesses contribute to strong regional identities, helping Italy avoid some of the bland effects of globalization. In towns and villages all over the country, life grinds to a halt in the middle of the day for a long lunch. Italy continues to be very family-oriented and puts emphasis on keeping strong family ties.
