Italy is in the TOP-10 countries of the world as one of the most interesting countries for students. The local educational system is one of the oldest in the world, has its traditions and features, where the freedom and personality of the student is the highest value. In this amazing country, a huge number of masterpieces of art are collected, and Italian cities attract their charm and originality. The diploma of the Italian university is highly valued in Europe - especially in the areas of fashion, design, architecture and urban planning.

Elementary education

In elementary school, students spend 5 years and pass such subjects as mathematics, reading, writing, drawing, music. During this period, foreign students will be able to learn Italian and adapt. At the end of this stage, exams are passed, according to which students receive a certificate of primary education.
