Milan, ITALY | 6 - 7 September, 2019



Known as the centre of fashion, finance and football, Milan is the home to both Leonardo’s Last Supper and the world’s premier opera house, La Scala. This is Italy at its most fashionable, self-assured and sophisticated, with prestigious museums and art galleries, excellent restaurants, hotels and designer shops.

Milan is the country's industrial and financial heart. It is the capital of Lombardy and the second-largest city and the largest metropolitan area in Italy. It generates approximately 20% of Italy's GDP and is home to more than 8 percent of all businesses in Italy, including three Fortune 500 companies. Since the late 1800s, Milan is an important industrial and manufacturing centre.


Milan is the most affluent area of Northern Italy and offers numerous Italian student recruitment opportunities.

Increasing interest in boarding schools:

Secondary education abroad is growing in popularity among provident local families and is the second biggest branch of business for North Italian student agents. The quality and prestige of these educational institutions are the main considerations why families choose to send their children to study at a boarding school abroad.

Language schools on focus:

Language schools are the top preferred study abroad destination for Northern Italian students. This way, language learning becomes the largest sector of study abroad market in Italy. Students are going abroad for the average period of several weeks, gaining knowledge and competence that turn into a step stone for further studies abroad.

Higher Education potential:

The potential for international student recruitment of Italian students keeps growing because of the high number of total students (more than 1.9 million) and a significant international mobility activity (nearly 50,000 outbound North Italian students on tertiary level alone). Average TOEFL score of 90 points (as of 2014) also indicates plenty of opportunities, especially for English-speaking programmes and institutions.
