Global Learning Semesters, in collaboration with the School of Fashion and Accessory Studies and Technology (FAST) of the Florence University of the Arts - one of the most prestigious schools in Florence - brings students the opportunity to study accessory and fashion design and technology and fashion communication and publishing. FAST sustains the local Florentine traditions of straw, leather, and knit production and promotes an economy of sustainability using local materials and resources. FAST is an integration project within local culture and is supported by local, green-mapped small businesses which interact and share their expertise, cultural love, and craftsmanship with our international students.

In addition to studying in Florence, students will travel to Rome, Siena, Venice, and Verona.
