Polimoda offers a range of fashion focused summer and semester programs at its stunning campus located beside the River Arno, next to the American consulate, in the heart of Florence, the unique city of the Italian Renaissance.

Florence is the birthplace of several luxury fashion houses including Emilio Pucci, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Ermanno Scervino, and Salvatore Ferragamo, which allows Polimoda students to feel the true energy of the industry, like in no other fashion capital.

You can choose between 4 and 13 week programs in Fashion Design, Fashion Business, Art Direction and Design Management and gain ECTS credits that can count towards your own degree course, at your home institution.

Please check the course descriptions below for further information.

Semester Programs
