You can usually take higher education courses if you’re 18 or older. They’re regularly taught in universities, colleges and professional institutions such as art schools or agricultural colleges - nearly all of which have their own websites. You can get a wide range of skills, for example, diplomas, bachelor degrees, foundation degrees and post-graduate degrees.

A fashion designer, a fashion journalist, or anybody else connected to fashion should be well educated in art, cultural heritage, history, aesthetic theories on one hand, and on the other – be creative and capable of coming up with individual and challenging ideas and concepts. A Course in Fashion can provide a comprehensive understanding and foundation in all of these aspects.

Italy, officially the Italian Republic, is a unitary parliamentary republic within the European Union, located in Southern Europe. To the north, it borders France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia along the Alps.
