    The reason I ask this question because I had contact them by email by phone. But they can not speak english at all so I wonder that this course is only for local student? And how I will get more information?

    Hi Ambas, I guess you're asking for the Master in Yacht Design of the Politecnico di Milano or the Centro Sperimentale di Design di Ancona, because are the only Master in that area as far as I know. Both are Master Degree for architects, engineers and industrial designers, so you'll need to be graduated first. Both are open to international students, but they impart their lessons in Italian. Its easier and cheaper, not faster, to send them emails in English with all your doubts. I know the Politecnica is now doing the selection process for the next year edition, I don't know the one from Ancona.
    Hope this help you and I wish you lots of patience.

    Hi Semrin and Ambas, finally someone from the Politecnico di Milano called me. His name is Andrea Ratti, he speaks english, so Ambas run to the phone! They are starting the course in these days, around the 21st march, nothing for sure. It's in italian, so I will need to learn it this year to postulate in 2006. I'm thinking now in the Landing School as a possibility, but I don't have any clue about the costs of the course and the living expenses.
    Let’s keep in touch, have luck.

    Dear Mr. Leonardo,

    aplication.
    I need further information to apply to an Italian scholarship that's open
    in these days:

    government recognition?

    GOVERNMENT.
    CENTRO SPERIMENTALE GRANT DESIGN DIPLOMA AND MAKE SPECIALIZATION COURSE
    THAT HAVE RECOGNITION BY LAW IN ITALY AND EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.

    thesis, ending date, etc.
    WE ARE WORKING ON A NEW MASTER DESIGN COURSE THAT WILL START IN SEPTEMBER?AND
    FROM BEGINNING TO END, YOU WILL MEED TO STAY IN ITALY ABOUT 6 MONTHS.
    What is it included in the 4.900 euro fee?
    LESSONS, WORKSHOP AND STAGES WITH ITALIAN SHIPYARDS.
    NO OTHER MONEY ARE DUE TO THE SCHOOL
    Do you have any scholarship or fellowship I could postulate?
    NO
    What are the estimated living expenses in Ancona?
    MINIMUM ABOUT 600 EURO PER MONTH ( ACCOMODATION, FOOD, TRANSPORTATION)
    I've been learning Italian, but would the preliminary Italian language course
    in your institution have an extra cost?
    WE CAN ARRANGE SOME HELP WITH ITALIAN LANGUAGE AT LOW COST,
    AND WE BELIVE THAT WITH A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE OT THE ITALIAN LANGUAGE, YOU
    WILL MANAGE AND LEARN VERY FAST.

    And proceeding with my postulation, what other information will I need
    to send you? Will I need to take any admission exam (in Italy) before I'm
    accepted?

    UNIVERSITY DEGREE
    THE NEXT SELECTION WILL CLOSE ON MAY 30, 2005
    Thank you

    I think Milano and Rome must be a little more expensive, but I not sure, and it's true that we are only a few in the world looking for a "Master" studies in this area.
    Have luck

    I really don't know if the Master in Ancona is only once in a year, because the first information Mr Vitale gave me was that the course was starting in March, so I don't know if it's the same with other dates or is it's a second "ROUND" of masters. In my country in some Postgrades you have to take an exam, for other you just need to accredite you have Universities Studies. I'm from Chile, but it seems it's the same in Italy.

    Hi,
    The cost of the landing school is approximately $12,000. Living costs would vary depending on the number of students sharing a house or apartment .
    Cost of a house would be about $1,300 per month for 2 or 3 bedrooms close to the school, same for an apartment. This is a vacation tourist econonomy area.

    I wanted to go to the Landing School, but the problem is that the course isn’t a Master program and the school doesn’t have the Fulbright recognition, so it’s impossible for me to find financial support. Maybe someday I’ll have the enough money to assist to the Design program in the Landing School. Sad but true! :(

    yea I know Landing shool is not a master program and it is a long program
    Since I'm interested in motoryachts and 6 months is not a long period, Ancona is more reasonable for me at the moment, and I think we need to have some relations with Italy, at least we have to learn italian because Italy is the leader in yacht design, buiding and marine industry
