Corsi riconosciuti dalla Regione Toscana in lingua inglese

 

Chi siamo

Florence University of the Arts (FUA) è una istituzione accademica internazionale accreditata presso circa cento università statunitensi e di altri paesi del mondo. FUA è, inoltre, una Agenzia Formativa accreditata dalla Regione Toscana, codice di accreditamento RT: OF0110.

Tutti gli insegnamenti accademici di FUA si svolgono in lingua inglese, così come tutte le attività di apprendimento esperienziale (experiential learning). L’utilizzo della lingua inglese nei percorsi di apprendimento contribuisce ad accrescere le conoscenze linguistiche funzionali e consente possibilità di carriera in un contesto globale laddove l’inglese è divenuto un requisito necessario.

FUA fornisce strumenti innovativi per raggiungere qualifiche valide per gli ambiti più vari. Le metodologie didattiche coniugano, infatti, le modalità tradizionali della didattica con la concretezza dell’esperienza. Questo è possibile grazie alla presenza dei CEMI (Community Engagement Member Institution), luoghi di interazione diretta con la realtà del lavoro, che consentono agli studenti di completare la preparazione accademica con una necessaria attività pratica.

Gli studenti provengono da tutte le parti del mondo e si confrontano con le specificità della professione in situazione reale e non in simulazione.

 

Cosa offriamo

 

Un percorso accademico indirizzato a studenti italiani, ma in un contesto internazionale, che si pone l'obbiettivo di garantire un livello professionale adeguato alle attività maggiormente richieste nel mercato attuale. I corsi sono integrati nel programma accademico di FUA e pertanto sono tenuti in lingua inglese. Per coloro che non saranno in possesso di un livello di conoscenza della lingua adeguato, verranno offerti corsi propedeutici gratuiti.

Saranno messe a disposizione Borse di Studio offerte da FUA nel numero di 5 per ciascun corso offerto.

I nostri corsi sono accreditati dalla Regione Toscana che al compimento degli studi rilascerà un Certificato di Qualifica Professionale.
