Though known as fashion’s mecca, Italian universities traditionally have been intellectually diverse. In fact, the world’s oldest extant university still stands tall at Bologna. Thanks to globalisation, Italian universities are now offering new courses in English in fields such as design, fashion technology, architecture and urban planning, bioinformatics and biotechnology, business administration and economics. Polytechnic of Turin and Milan, Universities of Bologna, Perugia and Venice have the maximum number of Indian students. Life in Italy is animated and eventful. “The country innately is stylish and it kind of rubs on to you,” says Surender Chauhan, who studied in Polytechnic of of Milan

Scholarship Opportunities

Italy is still not in the horizon of Indian students and only a few hundreds of students are taking admission in the colleges/universities of Italy. Students are increasingly going on scholarships for subjects such as biotechnology and bioinformatics, besides specialised master’s courses in economics, engineering and science and technology. Most of them were in the Faculties of Architecture, Urban Planning and Engineering (Chemical, Civil, Systems Engineering). Only a few of them have received Italian government scholarships.


To make the country more attractive to students, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs offered scholarships under the Cultural Exchange Programme to aspiring young Indian students in the fields of biotechnology, economics and management, fashion technology, environment and Italian language and culture (1 each of 700 euros/month for a year). The cost of living depends on the town. In Milan, for instance, the costs are very high, but with a scholarship of 700 euros a student can afford it.

How to get admission as well as scholarship to acquire PHD in art history from either Germany or italy?

Vagisha Aggarwal 15th Mar, 2020

Hello Aspirant

I would suggest that you first decide the university where you want to pursue your PHD in art history, study about its fees structure, prospects etc.

Then you contact the college by mail as colleges abroad are very responsive. Ech college has a separate application criteria for PDH students therefore you'll have to apply individually.

As for scholarship, they have scholars programs were you submit your application along with a few other details like family background etc which are required. Then they will shortlist people for scholarship after considering their applications and most probably will take an interview too.

But if your application is so good, sometimes the university offers good scholarships without filling any form also as they want to come and study in their university.

I have done my bachelors in Civil Engineering. I want to pursue Masters in architecture either in India or abroad. is it possible?

Deblina Maity 20th Feb, 2020

Yes, it is possible to do M.Arch. in India. But, there are only few colleges who provide this option and also you will get only two or three streams under M.Arch which are related to civil engineering like urban planning and development. But in abroad as they provide interdisciplinary courses so you have better options and scope.


I want to do masters in interior design in Italy so can I know hw to get scholarships?. and in universitys?

NAVNEET PANDEY 28th Nov, 2019

Hello Sanjana

There are lots of Universities in Italy for designing so you have to be more specific about the university.

Here I'm telling you about Florence institute of design international, university in Florence,

For financial aid you have to submit your 10 projects( no group projects), and your portfolio.

You have to clear your English tests also and have to submit everything before the starting of academic session.(usually before 90 days).

For admission you have to check for the release of admission forms regularly, after you get selected you can apply for visa and also for financial aid( scholarship).

You will get atleast 25% financial aid.

For most of the Universities same rules apply so you can try for different universities.

I hope it helps
