Collegio di Milano (Milan)

The Collegio di Milano opened in February 2003 thanks to a joint effort between Milan’s seven universities and several public and private institutions. The aim of the college is to offer an outstanding, interdisciplinary cultural and personal preparation to a selected group of undergraduates, post-graduates and researchers.

The central feature of the College is its Cultural Programme which places strong emphasis on interdisciplinary expertise. The College offers courses that encourage skills development both within and outside of the curriculum and which envelop both our humanistic culture and the principles of science. The College also promotes work placement schemes in various companies and institutions backing the project and can thus complete students’ training by giving them the opportunity to gain first hand experience in the workplace .

The College is situated in a 7,000 sq.m building on a 23,000 sq.m. campus. It recently underwent restoration in keeping with Marco Zanuso’s original architectural design.
