For your Graduate Experience, there is only one college. UniCollege.



The Unicollege Graduate School (UGS) is a branch of Unicollege, among Italy’s first accredited universities specializing in international education (and indeed recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education). The UGS is committed to providing advanced, professionalizing, and competitive training programs in the realms of arts, business, fashion, leadership, management, as well as other new and avant-gardist areas that prepare future global managers and leaders.

Candidates interested in pursuing international post-graduate programs at the UGScan choose from a list of certificates, advanced diplomas, and masters that hold both national (Italian), European, and international recognition – via the issuance of academic transcripts that award both CFU (Crediti Formativi Universitari, the Italian ministerial ascription for credit assignation), as well as ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) that allow successful candidates to claim international recognition worldwide.

All UGS programs are held by top-ranked instructors, who graduated from world’s prestigious institutions, such as Harvard University (USA), Leiden University (Holland), and Central Saint Martin (UK). Moreover, all courses are held in prestigious venues in UNESCO cities, such as Florence, Mantua, Milan, and Turin, making the learning experience both academically vibrant and sensorially unique.

A Certificate is the first step toward a post-graduate academic career and is designed for candidates who seek to pursue an introductory immersion in a highly professionalizing academic experience and area (i.e., Fashion, Marketing, Management, etc.). In this program, they will approach, discuss, analyze, and intellectually negotiate up-to-date issues, topics, and themes to build a foundational yet advanced experience in a valuable area or specialization.

Certificates usually hold a duration of an academic semester (three to five months) and are held in English.

Advanced Diploma

Advanced Diplomas provide a condensed, dynamic, and professionalizing academic experience in a given area (i.e., Fashion, Marketing, Management, etc.) and are designed for both fresh graduate students and/or trained professionals pursuing an upgrading learning experience. In this program, candidates will explore a variety of complementary courses, subjects, and case studies that will consolidate pre-acquired knowledge through dynamic learning models that span from flipped-classrooms, studio visits, group projects, and miscellaneous workshops.

Upon completion of the Advanced Diploma, candidates will have acquired a unique personal, biographical, academic, and professionalizing experience that will enrich both their curriculum and portfolio.


Masters are designed to provide a full, multidisciplinary, challenging, and engaging experience to a broad spectrum of candidates from either recent undergraduate or advanced professional backgrounds. Benefiting from unique learning settings (i.e. the 4 campus in UNESCO cities), candidates will experience a totalizing learning immersion that will hybridize both theoretical and applied skills through intellectually challenging, critical, comparative, analytical, and dialogical sessions held by top-ranked instructors. In addition, candidates will visit selected venues, sites, and organizations that exacerbate the professional application of their area of specialization (i.e., prestigious workshops, studios, think-tanks, museums, etc.).

Upon completion of their Master, candidates will have acquired a multidisciplinary, professional, cutting edge and applied learning experience, as well as a robust academic, curricular, and professional immersion.

Executive Master

In addition to the academic skills developed in the Master component (see Master), in this learning format, candidates will be provided with a complementary internship experience with prestigious partners that will complete their professional profile and curriculum. Each candidate will receive ad hoc training, assistance, and preparation to identify, live, and maximize a unique internship component in a prestigious city, context, and environment.

Graduation, Diploma & Transcript

Upon completion of each program (Certificate, Advanced Diploma, or Executive/Master), candidates will receive two certificates of completion: the former issued by the Unicollege Master School and the latter by Unicollege. Such a dual titling guarantees both a professional and academic accreditation to the program and the titles’ holder – as per the scheme below:


Holding a professional value and recognition


Holding international academic validity and recognition

In addition to the two Diplomas, Unicollege will issue a transcript, an official document issued by the university that validates all the courses (successfully) completed by the candidate – along with specifications pertaining to credits, grades, and complementary academic information that validate the Diploma internationally.
