Florence University of the Arts

Florence University of the Arts is an Italian institute of higher education. Florence University of the Arts (FUA) is accredited by the Region of Tuscany delegated by the Ministry of Education . The Italian accreditation system has established since 2005 that the government delegates to the regional governing bodies the implementation of control and the acknowledgement of academic institutions in accordance with Italian law. FUA is also reviewed yearly for European quality certification: 

Given the range of academic study, FUA is organized, since its inception along the lines of a US-style higher education institution, with instruction in English language, US processes and structure with a university comprised of multiple colleges or schools of study as typically implemented in the United States. 

FUA-AUF’s mission aims to offer a unique educational model for international students. Through this model, FUA-AUF allows students to integrate, benefit, and learn from their academic experience by applying knowledge and competence simultaneously.  Knowledge and competence are taught at the same time through educational strategies and several teaching methodologies that are based on the experience, integration, and engagement with the local community.
