We also have a series of services specifically for representatives, lecturers and teachers in Italian and Spanish High Schools, Senior high schools and Universities.
Scholarships and Facilitatations
For many years, IED has been involved in supporting the most motivated and brilliant students, by providing scholarships, grants and bursaries based on merit and financial eligibility. Thanks to agreements with leading banks, there is also the possibility of financing your training through subsidised loans. Also visit the page on the Right to Education.
Are you an international student?
From the very first moment at IED, all students, whether international or Italian, can count on a support service to assist with their integration into the socio-cultural context of the city and the campus in order to improve their learning experience.
In addition, for foreign students, knowing that they may have more difficulties at the beginning, we have produced an information kit to help overcome bureaucratic issues, but above all, we provide staff who will be able to assist them from the very moment they enrol.

LABORATORIES AND CLASSROOMS
Laboratories are an essential tool for supporting didactic activities; the high-tech laboratory equipment is specific for each field and available for each student. The classrooms are equipped with all the necessary equipment for training and are organised in order to provide a complete teaching experience.

There is one or more physical or virtual library at each IED campus that allows you to further your knowledge and access information that is not always easy to find.
The IED campuses are all different from one another. Each facility reflects the city in which it is located, as do the areas dedicated to leisure and discussion, which are extremely useful for improving your own experience and professional growth by exchanging ideas outside the classroom.
PART-TIME STUDENT COLLABORATIONS (only for IED Italia)
Each year, students registered for the First Level Academic Diploma have the opportunity of collaborating with the school, assisting certain offices by carrying out paid work. Students can complete between 50 and 200 hours per year although this work does not carry any academic credits. The requirements, duration and reimbursement depend on the type of collaboration a student chooses.

Inclusion and Support
IED has implemented teaching support and integration initiatives designed to promote a culture of inclusion among students with specific learning difficulties (SpLD) and/or special educational needs (SEN). The service involves one-to-one meetings with the student to define a personalised didactic plan (PDP).
Because IED is not limited to just teaching: this service is open to all students who want to share or discuss any problems that emerge during the course of their studies, and to identify possible solutions together with a psychologist. The Student Support Desk offers free appointment-based sessions.
Our Career Service staff members are working across all of our schools to take care of every single student. They provide support, training opportunities and assistance to help students, employers and the school itself feel more comfortable with the whole process.
Thanks to its numerous relationships and partnerships with academic institutions around the world, IED offers its students the opportunity of participating in international mobility programs.
