KO ** / 05/2022 FLORENCE / Working Holiday & Local Settlement Services"Hello, I'm a student dreaming of an Italian Working Holiday experience. Italy is a country I'm not very familiar with, so I had concerns about the entire process, from preparing the required documents to departure. However, EDUMILANO has been guiding me step by step, providing me with checklists and detailed instructions. Although there were many documents to prepare, I was fortunate to have my visa application approved on the first attempt. After that, I applied for the on-site settlement service before departing for Italy. Going to a completely new country alone can be quite daunting, but EDUMILANO has been a tremendous help. Especially when it comes to accommodation and paperwork, I feel that I can trust them completely. Italy has a different way of thinking and a unique lifestyle compared to Korea, so I have had many questions and concerns about adapting to life here. I have been receiving a lot of support and guidance in this regard. I feel fortunate to have chosen EDUMILANO as my gateway to Italy. Thank you!"
KIM ** / 04/2022 FLORENCE / Italian Language Course & Local Settlement Services"Hello! I'm sharing my experiences and thoughts on various aspects of studying abroad in Italy, which I embarked on this April. I hope my review can help those who are contemplating studying abroad. 1. Visa Application: Visa application can be really challenging. Although the required documents are listed on the embassy's website, it's not very detailed, and, in practice, they often request additional documents that are not listed. In my case, I initially tried to prepare my visa on my own with the help of the language school, but my application got rejected due to insufficient documentation. Reapplying was possible, but it's not as straightforward as it seems, and it took me an extra month and a half. Some of my friends even had to forfeit their accommodation fees. Therefore, blindly gathering all the documents is not a good strategy. Carefully select and submit only the essential documents to avoid unnecessary delays. Thanks to EDUMILANO's thorough guidance, I successfully passed my visa interview on the second attempt. 2. Departure and Arrival: Italy has a lot of requirements for international students, such as PCR tests and dPLF forms, which can be quite overwhelming. EDUMILANO helped alleviate these concerns, explaining the necessary steps and requirements, which was very reassuring. 3. Settling In: The first things you need to do upon arrival in Italy are obtaining a Codice Fiscale (Italian tax code) and a local SIM card. These might seem daunting when you're new to the country, but the EDUMILANO staff took care of everything. They even helped with some of the bureaucratic paperwork and phone activation. For those considering studying abroad in Italy, cost might be a concern. When reading blog reviews, you might think you can do everything on your own. However, this is not true. Italy's systems are generally not very user-friendly, and the language barrier can be challenging. Therefore, it's essential to have someone experienced by your side to navigate these complexities. EDUMILANO not only provides services for visa applications but also offers valuable assistance in other aspects of settling in Italy. If you're hesitant about the costs, keep in mind that it's worth the investment for a smoother transition and peace of mind. EDUMILANO's guidance and support have been invaluable to me during my study abroad journey. I hope my review can help those who are contemplating studying abroad. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!"
SHIN ** / 03/2022 ROME / Italian Language Course & Local Settlement Services"Hello, I saw the free registration for language schools on a blog and decided to make a call. I'm really thankful to the director who explained everything step by step right from the beginning! They were very understanding of my concerns about choosing a language school, and instead of recommending just one place, they explained the pros and cons of each school, which was extremely helpful for me to make a decision. To be honest, I initially had doubts about study abroad agencies, and I wanted to prepare my visa on my own. However, as I started doing it myself, I couldn't help but worry about getting rejected or the visa processing time getting delayed for no reason. So, I decided to apply for the full service, including local settlement, to feel more at ease. And what can I say? Everything went smoothly as if it was a breeze! I even received compliments at the embassy for having the documents well-prepared. From the moment I landed at Rome Airport, the director and the staff took care of me, and I felt really relieved. If you're new to studying abroad, I highly recommend applying for their services! I've received all the services, but even now, they're always available for consultation, which makes me believe I can enjoy my remaining time as a student abroad happily. Thank you so much!"
Kim ** / 02/2022 ROME / Italian Language Course"Hello, I had been planning to study abroad in Italy, specifically Rome, for a long time, and I ended up registering at a language school through EDUMILANO. I reside far from the metropolitan area, so I had a lot of concerns about how to handle study abroad consultations, but the director was always quick and kind in providing information through phone calls and emails! Thanks to that, I was able to arrive in Rome without major difficulties. I had ample preparation time, so I prepared the visa documents on my own. However, there was a moment where there could have been a delay in visa issuance due to local circumstances, but the director proactively reattached the documents related to the language school in advance, and also promptly provided the documents I requested without any issues! I had many questions and every time I asked, I received swift email responses, which allowed me to start my language course without any problems. After completing the language course, I am considering pursuing graduate studies in Italy, and I also plan to prepare for that through EDUMILANO. I have consulted with various study abroad agencies, but EDUMILANO has the most comprehensive information, and they provide a lot of information in advance, which I found very helpful and would like to recommend! Even though I communicated with the director only through emails, if I end up going to graduate school in Italy through EDUMILANO in the future, I would really like to meet the director in person. For those preparing for studying abroad in Italy, I highly recommend going through EDUMILANO."
Kang ** / 02/2022 Politecnico di Milano_MANAGEMENT ENGINEERING "Hello, I learned about EDUMILANO through the internet and I'm a student who successfully completed both graduate school admission and visa processing. Because I didn't have enough time to prepare for admission on my own, and considering my limited circumstances, I decided to proceed with both at once rather than wasting time. Time was quite tight, and I'm someone with a meticulous personality, so I reached out for help frequently, and I'm grateful for your always kind responses. While anyone can prepare documents, the process of communicating with the person in charge and contacting the embassy is what allowed me to save a lot of time. Everything can't always be perfect, and there were times when things felt frustrating or rigid, and unexpected situations occurred. Especially for someone like me, having a study abroad agency doesn't necessarily make all the worries disappear. However, knowing that there's someone who understands your concerns, can discuss them with you, and provide advice was very reassuring and comforting. The results were great as well, so if I had to do it all over again, I would definitely use EDUMILANO. Thank you."
Cho ** / 01/2022 Domus Academy & Local Settlement Services"Having worked in the field through two cities, New York and Seoul, I decided to embark on a new academic journey to explore design in Milan. Since it wasn't an English-speaking environment and everything was new, I was overwhelmed by starting a new life in a foreign country, regardless of language. Fortunately, I learned about 'EDUMILANO' through recommendations, and with the detailed guidance from the director and the staff, I received direct help in preparing for school, visa, finding accommodation, and all the information needed for a stable life. What I'm truly grateful for is that their support didn't end upon arrival. They check my schedule, guide me on what I need, and are always available for contact if I have any questions or issues. If I had prepared on my own without EDUMILANO, it would have taken me much longer, and considering how clueless I was about what I needed, I probably would have faced many difficulties from the beginning. Moreover, in the current COVID situation, they've been excellent at ensuring I have everything I need for daily life. I've never experienced this kind of curriculum support even during my studies in the United States, and my acquaintances who studied in Italy in the past didn't know about efficient institutions like Milan Study Abroad. I believe that even during my study period, I will always feel secure as if I am part of an agency. Thank you so much."
KU ** / 2022.1 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Local Settlement Services"Hello. Through EDUMILANO, I have come to Italy for a language course! If I had to handle visa applications and various tasks on my own, it would have been really challenging. I received a lot of help through the study-abroad service. I used the local settlement service to find a place to live, and the director and staff members at EDUMILANO handled the complex and difficult process cleanly. It seems like I can live comfortably thanks to them! I am still in the adaptation period, but thanks to EDUMILANO, I feel like I can adapt comfortably without other worries. I am truly grateful to the director and staff!"
SONG ** / 01/2022 MILAN/ Italian Language Course"Currently, it's my fifth day in Milan. Initially, I made the decision to pursue a language course during the uncertain times of the COVID era. Throughout the process, I've come to realize that just as prescriptions are best left to doctors and medications to pharmacists, seeking assistance from experts in study-abroad services is highly beneficial for one's mental well-being. I initially applied for assistance with visa application and document preparation. However, after successfully obtaining my visa, I soon realized that the visa was just the tip of the iceberg. There were numerous tasks ahead, and navigating through life in a foreign country, especially when you are unfamiliar with what lies ahead, can be daunting. I regret not applying for local settlement services from the very beginning. Firstly, the visa application process itself was challenging, starting with scheduling a visa interview on the consulate's website, which I found to be quite overwhelming. Once I applied for visa assistance through EDUMILANO, they took care of everything, including reviewing and preparing all the necessary documents. Thanks to their assistance, I received my visa smoothly. Looking back, I was overly optimistic to have thought that once I had my visa, everything was settled. Now, I have some free time before my language course begins, and I'm occupied with various tasks. I realize that there are many difficult and unknown aspects to this journey, especially because I don't speak Italian. It can be frustrating yet also enjoyable. If I had known that I would have to handle all these processes on my own, I would have applied for local settlement services much earlier for emotional stability. However, here I am, past the challenging part, and I am determined to continue forward. While the visa application felt like Hell's Gate, I now think that perhaps the visa was one of the easiest tasks. Personally, I would like to express my gratitude to EDUMILANO once again."
KIM ** / 2022.1 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Stradivari School in Cremona"Hello, I am currently attending a language school in Milan in preparation for enrolling in Stradivari School in Cremona! As I had very little time to prepare for my student visa, I sought help from EDUMILANO. Without their assistance in preparing admission documents for Cremona School and visa documents, it would have been incredibly challenging. Handling these complex processes on my own would have been difficult and time-consuming. Thanks to their meticulous support, I received my visa smoothly without any issues. I am now enjoying my life in Milan with no problems, all thanks to EDUMILANO. Thank you!"
SON ** / 12/2021 MILAN/ Italian Language Course"Hello, I came to Italy for language study through EDUMILANO in 2019. I am living in Milan with my two children. Recently, I needed a document legalized by the embassy as part of the process to renew my residence permit. It was quite challenging to inquire about this directly with the embassy as they were slow to respond and not very helpful. So, I reached out to EDUMILANO for assistance, and they handled everything extremely quickly and accurately. Although I haven't visited the embassy yet, I have faith that it will go well. EDUMILANO's efficient and reliable assistance has not only saved me time but also alleviated the stress of handling complicated matters alone during my overseas life. I'm truly thankful for resolving even this complex issue for me. I wish EDUMILANO continued success. Thank you."
LEE ** / 10/2021 Istituto Marangoni "Hello, I came to study at Istituto Marangoni Design School in Milan this year. Starting a new life in Italy brought many challenges, from document preparation to settling in. However, the team at EDUMILANO always checked everything meticulously and provided assistance, allowing me to navigate these challenges smoothly and without wasting time. When I arrived in Milan, the local staff accompanied me to set up essential services like getting a mobile phone and Wi-Fi. This was done without any language barriers, which gave me great peace of mind. Above all, solving complex paperwork with the help of the director at EDUMILANO was a time-saver, allowing me to focus on my studies. Thank you!"
Yea ** / 09/2021 SPD Polytechnic School of Design & Local Settlement Services"Hello, I am a student who came to Milan to study transportation design at SPD University. Initially, I tried to prepare my visa on my own after being accepted to the school, thinking, 'Visa application, I can just search and prepare the required documents.' However, I realized that there were way more documents to prepare than I had thought. By chance, I learned about EDUMILANO and decided to seek their help. The director at EDUMILANO meticulously checked and guided me through all the necessary documents, from notarization to apostille, visa documents, and even house contracts. If I had tried to prepare everything by myself, it would have been overwhelming. Additionally, as someone new to living abroad, I had many concerns and questions. Nevertheless, the director always provided kind and prompt responses. Although I had many worries about studying abroad in a foreign country like Italy, thanks to the director and the local staff, I am now living comfortably without worries. If you are worried and struggling with the idea of studying abroad in Italy on your own, I highly recommend seeking assistance from EDUMILANO. Thank you!"
Hwang ** / 09/2021 Politecnico di Milano_Building Architecture & Local Settlement Services"I settled in Milan with the help of EDUMILANO, from school registration to visa and Italian settlement services. They provided detailed guidance on what needs to be prepared in Korea and scheduled the tasks to be done in Milan well, making it easy for me to adapt. Furthermore, whenever I had questions or problems, they were always there to help, which makes me feel very secure. After a year, my wife and child will also receive settlement services in Italy. I am grateful to EDUMILANO."
Jeong ** / 08/2021 Bocconi University"I am a student studying business administration in Milan. I couldn't speak Italian at all from the beginning, and I didn't know anyone in Italy, so I decided to seek help from EDUMILANO. Upon arriving in Milan and observing other students who didn't use EDUMILANO, I realized that utilizing EDUMILANO's local settlement service can significantly reduce trial and error and stress. Moreover, I had to find accommodation online from Korea, and thanks to EDUMILANO, I was able to smoothly complete the contract, move in, and I am living comfortably now. In addition, whenever I encounter difficult situations, I can seek advice and receive quick responses :)"
KIM ** / 02/2021 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Local Settlement Services"Hello, originally, I had been planning my Milan language study for a long time, but due to COVID, I kept postponing it. Thanks to the director of EDUMILANO and the local staff, I arrived in Italy and was really grateful. Even though it was late at night, they arranged a taxi for me, and I safely reached my accommodation. To be honest, this is my first time visiting Milan, so I had a lot of questions from the beginning to the end. However, thanks to their quick responses and assistance, I feel like I'm adapting well. Most importantly, I love the apartment they found for me. As this is my first time in Milan, I've been spending some time studying languages at home due to the worsening COVID situation. It was tough, but as spring arrived, I visited the recommended restaurants and had a great time meeting friends studying languages together. It seems like I made the right decision to come to Milan, following your advice. I'm really satisfied and enjoying my time here. The weather is great, people are friendly, and I'm really thankful once again to EDUMILANO :)))"
JANG ** / 2020.9 Istituto Marangoni & Local Settlement Services"Hello, I'm a student who entered Marangoni Milan Fashion Campus this year! I managed to handle the school application and visa through another study abroad agency, but I sought help from EDUMILANO for housing and local settlement services. First of all, unlike the previous study abroad agency, they certainly helped me settle in Italy. They assisted me with the residence permit application, transportation card, health insurance, SIM card, and much more, all with the help of their local staff (they didn't just tell me how to do it, but they actually did it with me). When I had to go into self-isolation due to the pandemic, they even guided me on how to order groceries online and, since my Italian wasn't great, they even placed orders for me. I also found my apartment through EDUMILANO. Even though I contacted them urgently before my departure, they quickly showed me options that matched my criteria. If there were any issues with my apartment or anything else, even though it was the middle of the night in Korea, the director would reply immediately, contact the agency, and handle everything. When I needed to send packages from Korea, they provided guidance and took care of customs and other procedures. When there were problems with a package I was expecting, they immediately contacted me, explained the situation, and helped resolve it. These are things I could never have done on my own. They even helped me find a language school and provided information on nearby facilities and recommended restaurants. I truly cannot express how much help I received. They have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in settling in Italy! Among Italian study abroad agencies, they are the best. They take care of students to an extent I've never seen before. I'm so regretful that I didn't know about EDUMILANO from the beginning! I just had to prepare the documents they guided me on and came here, and they took care of everything efficiently! Thank you very much :) And I look forward to your continued support. I hope this situation ends soon so that you can come visit us here~~"
OH ** / 09/2020 Istituto Europeo di Design IED & Local Settlement Services"Hello. I came to Milan, Italy because I love fashion and wanted to study fashion design. I had a lot of concerns when deciding to use a study abroad agency because I wasn't used to doing things on my own. I had heard that many other places were not good at communication, but after consulting with EDUMILANO, my worries disappeared. From the consultation to the preparation process for studying abroad, they paid close attention to every detail and always took care of things proactively. Even in the process of finding a house, which I thought would be difficult, they asked about my personal preferences first and found a house that suited me very well. Whenever I had questions, they answered them quickly. Above all, the director is very kind and makes me feel comfortable, so I feel like I can communicate with ease. I will remember the big decision I made in my life with EDUMILANO, and it will become unforgettable memories of my study abroad life! Thank you always"
KAMIYA ** / 09/2020 Università degli Studi di Padova "Nice to meet you! I am Moenami Kamiya, currently attending the University of Padua in the Veneto region of Italy. Due to the impact of the coronavirus, I had to undergo a 14-day self-isolation period upon arrival. I didn't have an Italian phone number, and I couldn't use delivery services, so I was in a difficult situation. That's when I decided to use the services of Edumilano. When I explained my problem, they responded immediately. Furthermore, they provided support for the residence permit application, helping me smoothly complete this important procedure. There were many complex details to fill out on the forms, so their assistance was invaluable. I was deeply impressed by the attentiveness, speed, and quality of Edumilano's support. I had many anxieties about starting a new life, but thanks to Edumilano, I had a very positive beginning. Thanks to them, it seems that I will be able to enjoy my future study abroad life. I am filled with gratitude. Thank you 😊"
HWANG ** / 09/2020 Università degli Studi di Padova "Hello, I am the parent of a female student who was accepted into the psychology program at Politecnico di Milano this year and is starting classes in October. Our daughter was born in Japan and had been studying in Japan all along until she studied in Italy for about a year. It was during this time that she decided to pursue her university studies in Italy and began preparations. Our daughter handled everything, from university entrance preparation to obtaining a student visa, all by herself. In Japan, there isn't much activity related to study abroad agencies, and since our daughter was proficient in both English and Italian, she managed her preparations herself, with guidance from her father for the parts she was unsure of. After completing the housing contract in Italy where she would stay upon arrival, we thought everything would be fine as long as she completed the self-quarantine period. However, after arriving in Italy, on the second day, at around 9 PM Korean time, while making a routine check-in call with her, we found out that for almost two days, she had hardly eaten anything and had been suffering. During the self-quarantine period, going outside was prohibited, so everything had to be resolved through deliveries. However, due to the complex structure of the house where our daughter was staying, the delivery personnel couldn't find the correct address, leading to multiple order cancellations. Since our daughter didn't have a local phone number, she had to use roaming on her Korean phone, but it was inconvenient for delivery personnel to call her internationally. Our daughter and us were both in a near-panic state, not knowing what to do. During this stressful time, we came across EDUMILANO's website, blog, and reviews on social media. Late at night, with a glimmer of hope, I inquired through messenger if EDUMILANO offered on-site support services like the one our daughter needed. We were initially unsure if EDUMILANO's business primarily focused on domestic preparations for studying abroad and related services. Despite the late hour, within 30 minutes of my inquiry, the director contacted me. After explaining the situation, they immediately contacted our daughter in Italy. While we had only received information about our daughter's situation via phone, the director spoke to our daughter directly to confirm her difficulties and offered solutions. The director helped us understand what our daughter needed most at the moment, how she would receive care during the self-quarantine period, and all the administrative procedures related to her local stay, all of which were extremely confusing for us. Because of the pandemic, it was challenging to ensure our daughter would settle well in her new environment, especially as it was impossible for either of us to accompany her in person. The director not only addressed the immediate issues during the self-quarantine period but also provided detailed explanations about our daughter's current living situation, the surrounding area of her house, and any discomforts she might face in the future. They emphasized that even in such situations, EDUMILANO's program would provide comprehensive care. In a situation where it was difficult for our daughter and local accompaniment, EDUMILANO was an incredible support. Language skills are essential, but without experts, settling in a foreign country involves many trial and error attempts. Moreover, under the circumstances of the pandemic, both students and guardians experience significant psychological burdens. EDUMILANO truly understands these circumstances, offering prompt and suitable services, which has given us strong confidence. We know that there are virtually no similar services available overseas, including Japan. We have heard that EDUMILANO is almost unique in South Korea in providing such services. On that day, when we were all in a state of panic, the director said, 'From this evening, we will make sure your daughter can have a proper meal,' and with that single sentence, all our worries disappeared. A few hours later, we received a text from our daughter in the early morning, 'I had a proper meal for the first time!!' Thank you!!"
YOON ** / 07/2020 Politecnico di milano"Hello, I am a student who was accepted into Politecnico di Milano this year. Studying arts in Italy from Korea is relatively common, but preparing for engineering at a national university in Italy on my own was a challenging journey. Additionally, the constantly changing information due to COVID and the uncertainties regarding the specific requirements for enrollment made it even more challenging. The most common advice I received this year was, 'Please inquire with other institutions.' In reality, I thought that studying abroad this year was almost impossible. However, motivated by the advice of those around me to at least give it a try, I contacted EDUMILANO in mid-July in preparation for the exam at the end of August. To be honest, until that point, I felt like it was already too late to even contact a study abroad agency. I thought to myself that I wouldn't even be able to apply for the exam this year. However, now I am currently attending Polimi. Despite the numerous ups and downs, ultimately, I didn't waste a year. I believe that even if I had prepared for two years on my own, it would have been challenging. I want to express my gratitude once again to the teacher who helped me, and I hope that others who are preparing for studying abroad in Italy will also achieve success. Thank you."
JU ** / 03/2020 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Istituto di Marangoni"Hello, I am currently studying Italian in Milan with the goal of entering Marangoni's Fashion Design program in 2020. However, due to the spread of COVID-19, I had to make the difficult decision to return to Korea. Italy was under lockdown, and it was practically impossible to move around. I had accumulated many belongings over the past few months, and I needed to sort them out before returning to Korea. In the midst of my dilemma, I contacted the director. Even though my Italian language skills were still rudimentary, I couldn't fully express what I wanted to my Italian landlord. However, the director managed to resolve everything for me in one go. They helped me sort out my belongings and even booked a taxi for my return journey. The assistance from the study abroad agency was truly invaluable. I had been worried because my attempts to book a taxi through an app kept getting canceled, and I was concerned about not being able to find one on the day of my departure. The study abroad agency also helped me apply for a leave of absence, and I plan to continue my language studies while attending school again this autumn. They paid attention to every detail, and I want to express my gratitude to the director and the staff who supported me until my arrival in Korea. Grazie mille a tutti!!!! I didn't know anything about Italy when I first went for my language studies, but I trusted Milano Study Abroad Institute from start to finish. They provided unwavering assistance, and I am truly thankful. :))))"
Kim ** / 01/2020 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Istituto di Marangoni"Hello, I'm a student who hopes to enter Marangoni in 2020. I found out about EDUMILANO through Instagram. While researching various other study abroad agencies, I decided to visit EDUMILANO in person for a consultation, and after meeting with the director, I felt that they were the most organized and trustworthy option. I had my first consultation in the summer, and what impressed me the most was how they helped me plan my timeline to match my schedule, which allowed me to enter without any issues. I also found a place to stay with the help of their staff, which I really liked. If I had to do all of this on my own, I think it would have been very difficult throughout the year. Thank you so much. The staff at Milano Study Abroad Institute is also very kind, and it feels like I can entrust everything to them. From now on, I plan to focus solely on learning Italian. There aren't too many Koreans at the language school, which I really like. Thank you for your advice."
Oh ** / 12/2019 MILAN/ Hat design"Hello, I am a hat designer who already owns a small hat brand and runs a shop. I used to specialize in French-style hats and other American-style hats, but I wanted to learn Italian style, so I sought help from EDUMILANO. It wasn't my first choice, as I had experienced slow responses and even forgotten communication from other study abroad agencies, which made me lose trust in them. However, after meeting with EDUMILANO, I gained strong trust, and I am still satisfied. I completed the Italian Hat Design and Making course at Milano NoLab Academy. I chose this course because I wanted to learn both design and the manufacturing process, and I believe it was the right choice for me. Towards the end of the semester, I had the opportunity to work with professional photographers and product designers, which provided a real-world experience. Additionally, during the semester, I had a unique experience when the director of EDUMILANO visited Milan, and we had a delightful dessert time together. I was not pursuing a typical language or original fashion course, so I had many concerns during the preparation process. However, the Milan Study Abroad Institute played a vital role as a reliable partner. They also promptly addressed any inquiries or questions related to the school. I am grateful for that. If the time comes for me to upgrade again, I would definitely want to study through EDUMILANO. Thank you."
Lee ** / 11 /2019 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Istituto di Marangoni"Hello, I was preparing for Saint Martins in the UK, but I changed my direction to Marangoni. From last year, I have been simultaneously taking Italian language courses. Preparing a portfolio for Saint Martins, as those who have done so would know, was quite challenging. However, Marangoni required a different direction, so I had to prepare quickly. EDUMILANO provided direct counseling with the school, and I received prompt feedback. This allowed me to prepare well in a short amount of time. Unlike other study abroad agencies that only handle school matters, EDUMILANO's staff were also available in Italy, which made me feel secure. I found a house within a month of starting school! I'm currently focusing on my studies. I'm in the fashion design program, which is conducted in English. The Director recommended taking Italian language courses before school, and I did about 6 months of language study before entering. I still go to classes in the evening or on days with free time. Learning Italian has expanded my opportunities at school. For those preparing for Marangoni, if you have the opportunity, I recommend studying Italian in advance. The first year is quite busy. Thank you, and I hope to complete my three years successfully and continue with the Master's program!"
Youn ** / 10/2019 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Conservatorio"After completing my language course in Italy and smoothly handling everything from enrollment guidance to visa through EDUMILANO, I feel like I arrived in Italy without any other worries. Director and the local staff are so kind and helpful, and now, I can focus entirely on my school life without distractions! There were many things to take care of, especially regarding visa issues and preparing financial guarantee documents, but everything was handled quickly and efficiently. If you are preparing for a visa and music school, I would recommend entrusting everything to EDUMILANO. Once you're in Italy, you'll have the support of EDUMILANO's staff, so you and your parents can rest assured. Thank you!"
Han ** / 08/2019 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Accademia di Brera & Local Settlement Services"Hello, I arrived in Milan last year and spent about a year studying Italian. I recently got accepted to Brera National Academy of Fine Arts. When I first sought counseling last year, I had a lot of fears about language, but after studying at EDUMILANO for about two months and then transitioning directly to an Italian language school, everything went smoothly as you mentioned. Of course, it was challenging to keep up, but after returning to Korea and safely completing tasks from enrollment to registering at Brera School, I feel relieved. Thanks to EDUMILANO, I was able to focus solely on my exam preparation. Now, I'm excited to start a new chapter in Italy. Thank you, Director! I'll see you when I'm back in Korea!"
Lee **/ 07/2019 Istituto Europeo di Design IED"Hello, I am a student who came to Milan for a language course just a month ago. Personally, I had no prior experience, and there were many complexities during the preparation process. I sought help from EDUMILANO, and from preparing my visa to initial setup after arrival, including the residence permit and transportation card, everything was smooth, allowing me to start comfortably. The director at EDUMILANO provided kind and helpful counseling. The best part is that in case any problems arise, they are resolved quickly, and it significantly reduces the extra stress of handling matters beyond language learning. Thank you."
Choi ** / 06/2019 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Accademia di Brera"Hello, I am a student who came to Milan for a language course with the goal of entering Brera Art Academy. As soon as I arrived, I found it challenging to adapt to the different environment compared to Korea, and I couldn't have prepared the necessary documents on my own. Before coming here, I might have thought, 'I can probably figure it out through online searches,' but now, looking back, that was an unrealistic expectation. Moreover, as soon as I arrived, there were many situations where I needed to use the local language. Thanks to the excellent guidance from the director in Korea, I've been able to live comfortably without relying on Google Translate. They provided detailed assistance with house contracts and answered all my questions about daily life. If you're someone who knows that you can't handle everything on your own, come to EDUMILANO. Thank you!"
Kim** / 05/2019 Italian Language Course & University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo & Local Settlement Services"At first, I was preparing for my language course, feeling overwhelmed due to a lack of information and the many things I had to prepare. I sought help from EDUMILANO, and thanks to their meticulous assistance with visa documents, language school, and housing, I'm now living my student life with ease. Living in Italy can bring unexpected challenges, but EDUMILANO has been there to help with those issues as well. With their support and the help of local staff, I was able to easily handle matters like getting a SIM card and residence permit. Thanks to EDUMILANO, I'm enjoying my life in Italy to the fullest! Thank you!!"
Lee ** & Kim** / 03/2019 Italian Language Course & Local Settlement Services"Hello. I am a men's suit designer, and my husband and I came to Italy for our studies. In many ways, I had a lot of difficulties due to my limited knowledge of the Italian language. When you find yourself in unexpected situations, it often requires a significant investment of money and time. However, thanks to EDUMILANO, we received a lot of help and were able to navigate our study abroad journey smoothly and confidently. They provided assistance until the issues were resolved, and they kept in touch in real-time, allowing me to focus more on learning the language. Thank you, Director!"
Jeong ** / 02/2019 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Accademia di Brera & Local Settlement Services"After many twists and turns, I have finally found stability, and I wanted to leave a review. When I first joined EDUMILANO, I didn't know anything about the process. However, you provided me with clear guidance on how to proceed and even improved the plan I had set up. When I first arrived in Italy and faced communication issues with my landlord, you stepped in and resolved the problem for me. Although there may still be many challenges until I fully adapt to Italian life, I'm confident that you will continue to assist me. If you have any doubts about your ability to handle things or if you're feeling mentally stressed, I recommend consulting with EDUMILANO. They will solve your problems swiftly, just like loosening tight muscles."
Kim **/ 02/2019 University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo & Local Settlement Services"Hello, I am a student at the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, also known as UNISG, where I enrolled in early 2019. I had managed to gather information about the school and the application process on my own, but after being accepted, the visa, apostille, Declaration of Value (DV), and other procedures seemed overly complex and difficult to understand. That's when I sought help from EDUMILANO. Thanks to EDUMILANO, all the required documents were prepared systematically and effortlessly, making the entire process much smoother. Furthermore, I greatly appreciate the information sessions organized for prospective students before departing for Italy. The detailed information provided, including essential things like codice fiscale and Soggiorno, was immensely helpful, allowing me to settle in quickly. Now, having been in the small town of Pollenzo in Piemonte for less than a month, I can say that it's incredibly beautiful and exactly the gastronomic paradise I had imagined. I'm truly enjoying my time here, and the quality of education at the university lives up to my expectations. With a diverse student body from around the world, I look forward to experiencing a wide range of cultures and enriching experiences. While there may be fewer Asian students, it appears that my English proficiency is improving significantly, as the classes are conducted in English. Although I'm taking Italian language courses here, I can't help but think that taking classes with EDUMILANO would have been a great idea... hahaha. Currently, I'm eagerly anticipating three study trips during the semester (to Campania in Italy, the Netherlands, and Japan). Thank you for your assistance, EDUMILANO!"
Yu **/ 02/2019 MILAN/ Italian Language Course"Hello, I came to Milan due to language school visa reasons after visiting Venice in June last year and returning to Korea in August. When I returned to Korea in August, I researched all the Italian study abroad agencies in Korea, but to be honest, none of them provided the comprehensive support I received from EDUMILANO, right from the beginning. As a first-time traveler to a new place with a language barrier, it can be intimidating to adapt, so I highly recommend consulting with the Director if you have any concerns. Also, thanks to the local staff, all the paperwork and procedures were handled efficiently. It's been such a convenience. Thank you."
Son **/ 01/2019 MILAN/ Italian Language Course & Local Settlement Services"Hello, I have come to Milan for my studies. When I initially decided to study in Italy, I was overwhelmed by issues such as visas and housing. However, through EDUMILANO, everything has been resolved smoothly. The Director kindly informed me of the ongoing situations and patiently answered any questions I had, making my life as an international student very comfortable. I couldn't be more grateful for this peace of mind ;) I've also been having fun exploring the tourist attractions and restaurants you recommended throughout my study journey. Thank you, Director"
Kim **/ 11/2018 FLORENCE / Italian Language Course"Hello, Director~ Thanks to your assistance, I was able to prepare quickly, knowing exactly what documents to prepare and when. This allowed me to depart at the time I wanted. As soon as I arrived, the staff was very kind and helpful, along with you, Director~ I've mostly just been following along~~ I was also worried about finding a place to stay, but it turned out better than I expected, and the landlord is kind, so I'm doing well. ^^ I'll definitely meet you when you come on your business trip~~ Thank you very much."
Kim **/ 10/2018 IED Istituto Europeo di Design & Local Settlement Services"Due to personal reasons, I embarked on my study abroad journey a bit earlier. In the midst of my confusion and without any concrete plans for studying abroad, I came across EDUMILANO. While I was haphazardly researching study abroad options with no knowledge of various schools, the director introduced me to IED. Since this study abroad journey was chosen for my personal growth, I'm eager to experience as much as possible. Currently, I'm satisfied with my school and life in Milan, enjoying my second year as a newcomer. I don't know what the future holds, but with the director's assistance, I feel confident that I can handle it well."
Choi **/ 09/2018 IED Istituto Europeo di Design & Local Settlement Services"Hello Director!! From Seoul to Milan, you've been meticulous and helpful every step of the way, and thanks to your assistance, I'm doing well here in Milan without any problems. From embassy-related tasks to settling down in Italy, you've guided me seamlessly, making my adaptation much smoother. Thanks to you, even though it's only been a month since I arrived, I already feel like a local, and I'm proud and grateful!

Thank you, Director!"
Kang **/ 05/2018 Istituto di Marangoni"Hello~ Director ^^ I've arrived in Milan, and after trying out the restaurants you recommended and successfully finalizing the house contract with the local staff, I'm writing this email a bit late. Upon arrival, I met with the local staff the very next day, and it was quite hectic, but... hahaha. With everything being handled so smoothly, I'm really glad I chose to apply through your service. When selecting the house, your advice was invaluable, and it feels like I've come to a great place ^^^^ Even though my Italian is still basic, the weather is great, so I'm trying my best to improve my Italian while exploring here and there. Thanks to you, I think my life in Italy will be even more enjoyable! The book I received during orientation has been a great help^^ Thank you~~"
Kim **/ 2018.02 FLORENCE Italian Language Course & Conservatorio di Milano "At an age when pursuing dreams is uncommon, I encountered EDUMILANO when considering studying in Italy. I entrusted them with everything, starting from embassy-related tasks, the initial steps for studying in Italy, to the immediate administrative work upon my arrival in Italy. Having graduated from a music university in Korea, I could have relied on acquaintances or fellow alumni already settled in Italy. However, as I write this review, I realize that choosing EDUMILANO was a wise decision. It has only been two months since I settled here, and there are challenges and tasks ahead. Nevertheless, with EDUMILANO by my side, I feel confident. Thank you for your support."
Lee **/ 01/2018 IED Istituto Europeo di Design"Finding a good school quickly and having the application and admission processes move swiftly were a huge relief. When preparing the visa application documents, EDUMILANO stayed in regular contact with the embassy to ensure everything was in order. They even accompanied me during the application process, resolving any uncertainties. This made the application day stress-free. In Milan, there are many people who are familiar with the procedures, so when the school requested additional documents, they were promptly provided, saving a lot of time. Among study abroad agencies, EDUMILANO is the best at reassuring students! Haha. I've safely arrived in Milan. From the school visit upon arrival to arranging Schengen visa appointments, everything was smoothly planned. Now, I'm looking forward to an enjoyable student life. As a resident of Milan for ten years, the guidance on daily life and travel from Milan Study Abroad was invaluable in helping me adapt quickly to life in Milan. Thank you so much for your assistance!"
Shin **/ 12/2017 Istituto Europeo di Design IED"While preparing for my study abroad journey in Florence, I felt overwhelmed, especially with visa and language school issues. I happened to discover EDUMILANO through an internet search. Since I live in a remote area, I could only consult on weekends, but they provided me with excellent personalized assistance. They even solved my housing issues perfectly, so I didn't have to go through any difficulties. It's been a month since I arrived, and although things have been a bit hectic, I'm doing well. The restaurants you recommended are fantastic, and even though I haven't made many friends yet, I prefer it that way because there aren't many Koreans at the schools you connected me with. Thank you, Director!"
Jang**/ 10/2017 VENICE Italian Language Course & Conservatorio di Venezia & Local Settlement ServicesHello, I came to study in Venice! I initially came here on a working holiday visa and took an exam to become a student at the National Music Academy. Transitioning from a working holiday visa to a student visa was quite challenging for me. While I managed the paperwork for the working holiday visa on my own, the student visa process was much more complex and difficult. The biggest challenge was the extremely tight timeline, with less than a month to prepare. Given the circumstances, I couldn't handle it on my own, so I entrusted Milan Study Abroad's director with the task. As expected from a seasoned professional, everything was handled swiftly and efficiently. Despite the short timeframe, the documents were prepared flawlessly, and the visa was approved in one go. Additionally, EDUMILANO found me a fantastic place to live, despite the tight schedule. Thanks to their help, I'm now enjoying my student life to the fullest. Thank you so much!!
Park **/ 06/2017 MILAN Italian Language Course "While preparing for my study abroad journey in Italy, I was completely clueless, and that's when the director of EDUMILANO became a guiding light for me. There were no specialized study abroad agencies for Italy, so I struggled by going to the embassy and dealing with things on my own. Thanks to the director's kind counseling and advice, I found the process much smoother than I had anticipated. The local staff members were also incredibly helpful, and thanks to the director's round-the-clock support, I even found a great place to live. For those who are starting their study abroad journey from scratch like me, I highly recommend EDUMILANO."
