The Academy of design

Euromediterranea Harim Academy  specializes, such as  the Universities of design,  in the fields of fashion, jewellery, photography, interior design, product design and communication. This institution is located in Catania and Tripoli (Libya). Our objective is to nominate the Mediterranean basin into a new creative one, that will show  the impact that design and fashion can have on the cultural and economic well being of the entire Mediterranean area. The decision to initiate the Academy in this area has been made considering  the fact that today, thanks to globalization, you can choose to create and produce everywhere. One of the most important advantages of its presence in this location is to be a meeting place for every creative individual of Euro-Mediterranean area and become a professional within this field. Furthermore, with this profession you can strive to live in an environment full of energy, stimulus, history and tradition.

The Academy of Design

has created a professional training environment for fashion and design for many years, achieving national and international increasing success. In particular, we want to develop and improve the creative and practical skills of our students with advanced training methods with the help of our expert teachers. The fashion Academy, other than a grounded theoretical and practical training involvement, offers the opportunity to do internships in some of the highest professional companies and allows its students taking part in some of the most representative events of the sector: exhibitions, runway shows, interaction shows, dedicated faires,  awards and international contests. Our proven success rate is mainly due to the high amount of students hired by companies of the sector after the internship.

Teachers are not the typical academic professors because they want students to be free to express their creativity. Our teachers are professionals from various fashion sectors: fashion designers, photographers, designers, journalists, tailors and marketing experts. They provide students with a direct exposure into the field and with their open-mindedness to evolve these students into emerging prodigies.

A new entry among the proposals of the Academy Euromeditteranea, also added in others Universities of design, is the establishment of scholarships that, year by year, allow very worthy and economically disadvantaged students to attend one of our courses. The committee, after the examination of the requests, chooses the winners. The selection criteria are based on income, merit and age requirements.
