Iuav University of Venice was established in 1926 as one of the first Architecture Schools in Italy. To this day, it still maintains its unique status. It is a design-themed university focusing on the teaching, research and practice in the design of living spaces and environments (buildings, cities, landscapes and territory) and in the design of everyday use objects, of fashion and of graphics. It has a more recent but well-established tradition in the teaching, research and practice of visual arts, theatre and performing arts, and multimedia events.

Syllabuses, courses and learning and workshop activities are organised in 4 undergraduate degree programmes and 6 graduate degree programmes covering the fields of architecture, design, fashion, visual arts, urban and regional planning and theatre. In addition, Iuav offers advanced specialisation courses and 8 PhDs.
