The Most Visionary Postgraduate Design School


Professional Experience & Placement

There is no better way for you to gain experience in your field than actually working in it. Domus Academy puts a high value on professional experience, so we have built it into all of our Master’s Programmes

During the fifth module of your degree program, you can choose from two different types of professional experiences:

  • Internship—While working for a company the student will complete assignments that are part of a real project.
  • Field learning experience—As a consultant the student will collaborate with other creatives and develop a real project for a company, while supervised by a Programme Leader and a Company Tutor.

Whichever type of experience you choose, you will be guided and mentored throughout the process. You will have a chance to apply new skills, get an inside perspective on your field, and make valuable industry connections that can further your career.

Non-EU students are also eligible to participate in a professional experience. They can extend their permit of stay to work in Italy for up to one year after degree completion.
