A great journey always begins with a first step.

Italy: synonym of wonder, especially for the new generations who live abroad and who wish to enter into contact with the culture and the educational system that the Beautiful Country is able to offer. The scenario assumed by RUFA to contact students attracted by Made in Italy, starts from this assumption not intended only as a sign of distinction and style, but also as a qualitative approach to life.

It is precisely in this context the foundation year fits in: a supplementary course of 60 credits, lasting one year, the objective of which is to initiate the student in cultural, design, historical and artistic subjects which they will encounter, in yet a deeper way, in the years to come. Thanks to this educational path, foreign students with 11 years of school attendance will be able to integrate the minimum prerequisite of the 12 required, before accessing the university system, supplementing their knowledge of basic subjects for the development of the required artistic, audiovisual, multimedia and design knowledge. Participants will also be able to find out about RUFA training methods, interacting with teachers, by integrating practical and theoretical methods, exploring the concepts of research and artistic production and best practices related to design....
