Other faculty from both Wesleyan and Vassar (Wesleyan’s consortial partner at all three sites, along with Wellesley in Bologna) also were present, including Professor of Spanish Antonio Gonzalez, interim director of international studies. Each program has local staff (assistant directors, instructors and professors, and host families), many with longstanding relationships with the program. Jacobsen viewed the facilities, reviewed course enrollment procedures, and met with students, administrators and professors in all three locations.

During 2013-14, 38 students are studying in Madrid (31 from Wesleyan), 43 in Bologna (11 from Wesleyan), and 48 in Paris (21 from Wesleyan).

FIT and other schools

by futuredesignschools

Like you I have a BS in Fashion Merchandising and am now trying to go back for design. I know that FIT is a great school but they are pretty strict with the portfolio. I can't draw either but if you can come up with a creative way to present your portfolio its worth a shot. Compared to FIDM I think that FIT is a lot better. They have great connections since being right in NYC. Have you looked into schools in Europe? Central St. Martins is one of the top if not the top school in the world for fashion design. I am currently applying to Polimoda in Florence Italy. It is also a great school and worth checking out since it works with FIT for study abroad programs
