QS World University Rankings® by Subject Art & Design: for the second year in a row NABA is the Best Italian Academy and in the Top 100 worldwide

The Academic Articulation partnership between NABA and IDEA was established in 2021. The collaboration provides IDEA international students with a combined learning experience in which they attend a portion of their study path at IDEA University and another at NABA. Eligible students have the chance to continue their studies at NABA undergraduate and postgraduate-level programs. At the end of their educational path, students who pass all the exams at NABA and the final test will obtain a degree from NABA. Furthermore, upon concluding their studies at NABA, students can transfer their transcripts to their home university to obtain recognition and, therefore, a double degree.


The method of articulation with Vidyavardhan's IDEA is:

  • Undergraduate 3+1: Three years at Vidyavardhan's IDEA + one year in NABA in PRODUCT DESIGN path
  • Undergraduate 3+1: Three years at Vidyavardhan's IDEA + one year in NABA in INTERIOR DESIGN path
About NABA

Founded in 1980, NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, with campuses in Milan and Rome, is the largest private art academy in Italy. For the 2022 edition and the second year in a row, QS World University Rankings® by Subject named NABA as the first and only Italian Academy of Fine Arts among the 100 best universities in the Art & Design field. Since 1981 NABA has been legally recognised by the Higher Education in Art and Music system, regulated by the Ministry of University and Research (MUR).


Throughout the years, NABA has established its name internationally, and today we have hosted around 5000 students from over 70 countries.


Internationalisation Imperative

At NABA, we recognise Internationalisation as "self-transformation" for students to see the world from vantage points and allow them to reach beyond their backgrounds. It is the process where people contribute to the world while learning to think differently about their own traditions. We equally consider Internationalisation as an ethical imperative for inclusion, a way to improve the quality of education and prepare students to succeed in the global labour market.

Over these years, our international students collaborated, learnt and worked with some of the most prominent Italian designers, thinkers and cultural figures. After graduation, NABA's Career Services & Industry Relations Office continues to support our alumni by promoting internship and job offers and supporting projects between alumni and companies.
