You are the star!
teachers, holding the International House or equivalent
certificate, use different methods to plan the
lessons based on the communicative approach, emphasising,
right from beginner level, this fundamental aspect
of language learning, guiding the students in
their discovery of grammar and vocabulary and
creating the conditions for practice and role-plays.
students are therefore the real stars of the lesson,
according to the principle that the best way to
learn a language is to use it, with the encouragement
of a teacher, making the use of the language in
everyday situations easier.
Italian as a language, the lessons also embrace
Italian culture at different times and in different
ways: during the moments dedicated to free conversation;
when watching films carefully chosen and with
follow-up activities and discussion; with the
special lessons on Friday envisaged for the group
courses that allow the students to use the language
outside the classroom, around the city, going
to exhibitions, museums, markets, newspaper editorial
offices, and everything else the city has to offer.
hope to welcome you soon to Italy, to Milan and
at our school and we also hope that your trip
is both profitable and pleasant.

Courses are post-secondary school courses with obligatory
attendance, designed for a limited number of students
who want to take their talent and creativity and
transform them into a profession, as well as to
acquire knowledge as a means of constructing the
personal, professional and social project for their
own lives. The training aims at achieving three
basic objectives: knowledge of technologies, of
materials and of design culture, the ability to
understand the market and its requirements and the
ability to communicate the qualities of design.
first year is devoted to acquiring the basic methodology
necessary for students to adopt the right approach
to creative work. In the years that follow, there
is a more intense focus on design activities developed
on the base of real client briefs, supported by
the guidance of lecturers and by the supervision
of consultants in the field in question. The well-established
relationship between IED and the working world enables
students to take part in events, seminars and competitions:
often real working experience that culminates in
dissertation projects. This stimulates students
to acquire critical skills, to operate independently,
to make decisions and to relate to the client, just
as they would do in their real professional careers.
courses are addressed to newly-graduated students
and practising professionals. IED Masters launch
professionals that have the abilities to:
with the complexity of the contemporary world
consciously tackle the new requirements of production
open windows onto potential new worlds
interact competently in professional circumstances
advanced study program with flexible curricula are
designed to cater for the increasing complexity
of the labour market.
result is an effective concentrate of experiences,
ideal above all for foreign students who want to invest
a limited amount of time in acquiring key skills for
building their professional profiles and gaining concrete
experiences in close contact with the Made in Italy
system, without ruling out the possibility of continuing
their studies later.
Held in English, the courses in this one-year full
immersion are designed to enable students to experiment
and pick up the basic tools of design. Theory lessons
are accompanied by creative workshops, visits to
firms, trade fairs and industrial events, meetings
with practising professionals.
If you have already started work and are interesting
in broadening your horizons of expertise and giving
your CV a more competitive edge, then this is an
ideal formula for you.
Every year, during June and July, IED offers intermediate
and advanced courses in the fields of Fashion, Design
and Visual Arts. These courses are held in English
and generally last from three to four weeks.
They are a perfect solution for those who desire
to combine their spare time during holidays with
a new stimulating experience. Following a precise
methodology and guided by professors, who are all
professionals from the chosen field, students will
experience the development of a project specific
to their interests.
These are typically very flexible modular courses
with diversified didactic contents: features that
enable personal curricula to be organised to suit
each individual’s specific requirements.
Attendance from a minimum of one to a maximum of
five days a week, duration from one to nine months,
the restricted numbers of students and the fact
that the lecturers are all practising professionals
are just some of these courses’ distinctive
The topics tackled may be dealt with differently
from one location to another in terms of formula,
duration and depth.
