The Academy of Design

Harim | Euromediterranean Academy  located in Catania, specializes, like other Universities of design, in the fields of fashion, jewelry, photography, interior design, product design and communication. Our goal is to transform the Mediterranean basin into a new creative one, showing the impact design and fashion can have on the cultural and economic well-being of the entire Mediterranean area. We have made the decision to start the Academy in this area taking into account the fact that today you can choose to create and produce everywhere, thanks to globalization. One of the most important advantages of it sparticular location is being a meeting place for every creative individual of Euro-Mediterranean area who wants to become a professional within this field. Moreover, with this profession students have the chance 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 a national and international increasing success. In particular, we want to develop and improve the creative and practical skills of our students through advanced training methods and the help of our experienced teachers. Our fashion Academy, in addition to a theoretical and practical training involvement, gives its students the opportunity to do internships in some of the most top-rated companies and allows them to take part in some of the most representative events of the field: exhibitions, runway shows, interaction shows, dedicated fairs, awards and international contests.

Teachers are not usual academic professors since they want students to be free to express their creativity. Our teachers are professionals from various fashion sectors such as fashion design, photography, design, journalism and marketing. They provide students with a direct exposure to the field and with their open-mindedness, in order to let students evolve into emerging prodigies.

A new entry among the proposals of the Euromeditteranean Academy, already added in other Universities of design, is the establishment of scholarships that allow, every year, very worthy and economically disadvantaged students to attend one of our courses. The committee, after the examination of applications, chooses the winners, taking into account selection criteria based on income, merit and age.
