Studying fashion in Milan: the complete guide

May 6, 2022 | Milan

Recently, more and more young people have chosen to undertake courses of study aimed at creating the necessary skills to work in the fashion world. However, not all institutes that prepare future design and fashion experts are the same.

Understanding which is the best choice to study fashion in Milan can be a fundamental step to cultivate your ambitions in this field.

Let’s try to evaluate which are the most useful choices and where it is convenient to study fashion in Milan.

What degree do you need to work in the fashion industry

There are numerous three-year and post-diploma courses offered by universities and other training institutions in the fashion sector. What makes the choice even greater is the fact that some of the degrees awarded by Italian fashion institutes have been equated by the MIUR (Ministry of Education, University and Research) with full-fledged three-year degrees. 

In the next few lines we take stock of what it is worth doing to get the best out of this field of education.

Which course is best in fashion

The first step is to understand where it is best to study fashion and to understand what you want. The field of design and fashion is indeed very broad and choosing the right path will depend on your aspirations.

What do you study at Marangoni Institute

An excellent example is the Marangoni Institute, which has a branch in Milan and one in Florence. 

The courses prepare students on various aspects related to men’s and women’s fashion but also to design.

It also trains the future protagonists of this sector, on marketing, visual merchandising, creative direction and styling, without neglecting media and communication.

It is certainly one of the most popular choices for students wishing to enter the world of fashion and design through the front door!

How much does it cost to study fashion in Milan

The cost of a fashion course in Milan depends on a variety of factors that the student would do well to examine with particular attention when choosing such a course:

– the reputation and importance of the structure organizing the course;

– the duration;

– the level of specialization provided;

– the alternation between classroom study and internships;

– the professional outlets provided.

How much does a course at Marangoni Institute cost

When people ask how much a course at Marangoni Institute costs, they often hear answers with figures that may seem very high and may discourage aspiring students.

When we talk about a course at Marangoni Institute, we are talking about a structure of particular prestige at national and international level, able to prepare future workers in the fashion industry with particular care. This is an important factor to consider in order to understand why the price is so high.

In addition, the institute always offers scholarships for the most talented students.

How much does a master’s degree at Marangoni Institute cost?

Having said that, a master’s degree at Marangoni Institute costs between € 20,000 and € 30,000, depending on the type of course chosen. 

Of course, it is not a particularly cheap tuition fee, but for this cost, you will have the opportunity to obtain a very high level of training.

How long does a course at Marangoni Institute last?

The course at Marangoni Institute lasts three years. For each of the years of training, the student can obtain 120 credits. At the end of this cycle, 360 credits will be obtained in order to obtain a BA (hons) degree.

Where can you study fashion marketing in Milan?

In addition to the Marangoni Institute, there are many other schools that provide high quality training in the world of fashion and design in Milan.

One example is certainly represented by the IED, the European Institute of Design, which, in addition to Milan, is present in Italy with branches in Rome, Florence, Turin, Como, Cagliari and Venice. 

The IUAD, the Academy of Fashion in Naples, which has recently opened a new headquarter in Milan, also offers a wide range of courses.

Other proposals include that of NABA, the New Academy of Fine Arts, also present in Rome, which also adopts a system of scholarships commensurate with income and which allows students with a good curricular profile, but a low ISEE level, to still be able to access its educational path at affordable conditions.

Also recently opened in Milan is the Accademia Costume e Moda, with a long tradition in training professionals. The courses are three-year courses and are recognised by MIUR.


In the margin of this brief analysis on where it is convenient to study fashion in Milan, we can only invite all students who are interested in learning more to make direct contact with the universities or institutes equivalent to the MIUR mentioned above. In this way you will be able to find out about the current offers in the catalogue and the relative costs.
