Uni Profile: Polimoda, Italy

Polimoda, a fashion and business in Florence, Italy, has a fascinating history. Founded in the 1980s as a joint project between the cities of Florence and Prato and the New York based Fashion Institute of Technology, they have quickly come to be a serious player in this field of study.

Polimoda offer courses in Fashion Design, Fashion Business, Design Management and Art Direction at the undergraduate level, all taught in English. Students get a truly experiential education with amazing ties to industry both in Italy and around the world.

As a private European university, they provide all the support services that students typically expect of a university, crucially giving support to those whose level of Italian may be basic or non-existent.

With partnerships with Central St Martin’s in the UK as well as in the US, students at Polimoda are able to have a truly global experience.
