Overview & Learning Outcomes

The Foundation Course or Preparatory Course is thought as an introductive programme to the Bachelor of Arts programmes in Costume & Fashion, Fashion Editor Styling & Communication and Fashion Design Management.

 Students are introduced to the educational method of Accademia Costume & Moda, to the creative process and to subject areas related to Fashion Design, Costume for performing arts, Fashion Communication and Design Management. For Non-Italian speakers, the course includes also the study of Italian language through a 150 hours module to be attended in September with the aim of achieving the B2 level required to access Bachelor of Arts programmes of Accademia Costume & Moda.

The learning outcomes consist in guiding students through the choice of their fashion study programme by ensuring a solid basic preparation useful to begin study programmes in Fashion Design, Fashion Communication and Management.


The Foundation Course is addressed to students with a minimum B1 level of knowledge of Italian language and holding a secondary school diploma or other equivalent study title obtained after at least 11 years of education and allowing the access to first-cycle academic courses in the foreign education system of reference.

In order to maintain the high quality of the study experience, the Foundation Course observes a limited-enrolment policy. To enrol in the course it is not required to pass an admission test.

The Foundation Course is conceived as a theoretical-practical study path that intends to provide students with a solid introduction to Fashion History and Culture, History of Arts, Design Method, Fashion Drawing, Fashion Photography and Management that represent the pillars in the education of designers, communicators and managers operating in the fashion field.
