Ciao! Pack your bags and get ready to indulge your creative side in this modern city, known for its world-class art, architecture, design, and fashion. Absorb all that Milan has to offer through IES Abroad Milan's wide variety of courses and internships.
No matter what level of Italian you speak, we invite you to study here and experience Milan's rich culture. You are placed in an Italian language course that's been designed for you based on your language level.
Our Italy Today Program offers you courses in liberal arts and social sciences, all of which address aspects of contemporary Italian society.
