UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

Our European system of under-graduation lets our students enroll in a specific course of studies they wish to pursue upon 3 years specialization path in order to achieve a certificate of Level EQF 6 [European Quality Framework] as a “Diploma Accademico di I livello”.

In the traditional system, in EQF 6 is also defined a vocational degree (Diploma di Laurea) that is similar in length, and it is also considered as an academic degree. Though it is designed as a specialist degree, in contrast to the Diploma Accademico di I Livello, which claims to be more generalist.

Italy itself, however, is currently abolishing the legal distinction between Academies Diplomas and University’s Degrees. They will be both translated as university’s certificates as they both provide Bologna-Compliant and Equivalent Levels. The comparison is currently based on common reference levels, correlated with a “learning outcomes” framework and placed in an 8-level structure called EQF.

In most under-graduate studies, if students have any lack in required subjects, they are required to obtain their foundation certificate (propaedeutic) within three semesters after starting the course. A foundation certificate also counts as a requirement for participating in a university level bachelor’s study. The propaedeutic exams have the purpose of assessing whether a student has the appropriate capacities in order to complete the course.

POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMS

According to the European System of Specialization Courses, IAN postgraduate specialization courses (Master I Level), are aimed to increase students’ professional and specific knowledge.

These courses are designed to provide the tools and skills to perform the tasks required by particular professional activities. They serve to provide the appropriate qualifications to individuals who require them to work in highly skilled professional sectors.
The first level Italian Master is part of the “second cycle” of Education defined in the regulations of the “Bologna Process”, which typically provides 60-120 ECTS credits (minimum 60 ECTS for the master’s level).

The 1st level master corresponds to level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework (Master’s Degree, 2nd level Academic Diploma, 1st level University Master, Specialization Academic Diploma I, Postgraduate Diploma or Master I)

PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS

Our professional courses have been conceived with an approach oriented towards a practical preparation. They provide the basic theoretical knowledge and the tools and skills required by the labor market. Apprenticeships form an integral part of the courses: for eligible students, a training experience is provided in a private company – or, in alternative a job shadowing experience – that covers at least 30% of the total duration of the course. This path aims to establish a strong and lasting bond between students and the companies where they work, with the aim of also developing innovation skills – now increasingly required and essential for entry into the world of work. At least 50% of teachers come from the corporate world to allow students to develop the skills required by businesses.

The courses are related to the following technological sectors:

  • Innovative technologies for cultural heritage and activities – Tourism
  • Information and communication technologies
  • New Technologies of life
  • New Technologies for Made in Italy
  • Aesthetic arts, professional body arts and hairdressers
  • Music

Students obtain the “Certificate of Completion”, together with the adequate creation of their EUROPASS curriculum, will be able to more consciously enter the world of work in Italy, in the countries of the European Union or bring their knowledge in the technological field of their countries of origin.

Classification: second cycle degree of the Bologna process / EQF Level 1-2-3-4-5

The program does not include any academic minimum entry requirement but provides for an English or Italian language level at least A2, preferably Italian and at least 3 months of experience in the sector similar to the field of the chosen course; admission takes place after passing an interview, where required, aimed at verifying an adequate set of initial skills.
