IULM for Schools and Teachers
"University goes to school"
"University goes to school" is an orientation teaching project. High schools will have the opportunity to host a university lesson held by a IULM teacher. The meeting, structured according to the school's specialisation and the needs of the young people, will address issues useful for making a more informed university choice.
Below is the list of lessons offered by our teaching staff

What will happen after finishing school? What are my attitudes and aspirations? Should I listen to my heart or my mind? Reflecting on yourself and your own motivations will allow you to make a conscious choice with the help of the University. Our educational coaches organise an orientation meeting for high school students from all institutions that apply. The initiative aims to provide useful advice so that each young student can lay a good foundation for achieving their personal goals.
The meeting lasts about two hours and includes a theoretical part and a practical part with exercises aimed at stimulating reflection on the part of the students. To arrange a meeting, please write to [email protected] or call 02891412813
From north to south to talk about IULM
Through a task force of IULM graduates and undergraduates we want to shorten the distance between university and school through orientation activities in the field. That's why IULM meets the students directly at their institutes on an itinerant trip throughout Italy and beyond.
The presentations include an overview of the university world (features of the academic year, differences between school and university, exams and credits, services, etc.), followed by an in-depth look at our degree courses and the professions associated with them.

IULM Orienta started up in 2003 with the help of 10 tutors who travel almost 15,000 km in two coaches reaching students in schools and town squares. In 2004 we intensified the work from office contacting schools and scheduling of appointments. The members of the Task Force became more autonomous and started moving separately.
The project is constantly evolving and, in addition to presenting the degree courses and the non-educational activities that characterize the life of university students, they also brings to schools direct personal accounts of a variety of professional experiences.
Discover the Campus
In order to get to know the University, its structure, and what everyday life is like on the IULM campus, we organize made-to-measure guided tours. In fact, in addition to discovering the University campus, it is possible to agree on targeted educational activities and presentations of degree courses.
The visits to the Milan campus are aimed at groups of 4th and 5th year high school students.
To arrange the date and type of visit, please call 02891412384 or write to [email protected]

IULM University, within a framework of institutional partnerships, organizes competitions for high schools aimed at raising the students' awareness of issues such as terrritorial valorisation, the preservation of artistic and cultural heritage, creative writing, and social communication. These are areas of strategic importance from a social, economic, political and cultural point of view, which offer professional career opportunities to suitably trained figures. Hence the importance of bringing young people closer to these issues in an entertaining way.

WHY ARE WE (NOT) THE PEOPLE? On the occasion of Bookcity 2018, IULM has launched the competition "Why are we (not) the people", a literary contest that was born from the invitation of the University to young students of Milanese high schools, to confront and express their creativity on a theme - populism - which is of great relevance today and that calls into question not only history but also politics, the media and the forms of social, economic and cultural relations that characterize our present. The direct appeal to the people as an element of legitimacy and exaltation of the leader was in fact a constant in the history of the twentieth century, reaching its dramatic peak in totalitarian regimes and in some authoritarian experiences. Forms of populism, however, can also be manifested in democratic contexts. An invitation to discuss a very topical issue. The construction of a populist discourse has always had to draw, at an ideological level, on the exaltation of a leader as representative and leader of an idealized mass, which is flattered and manipulated, identifying danger in external enemies. At an operational level, populism has always had to resort to structures of mobilization (parties, trade unions, educational facilities etc.), making extensive use of the means of communication available. If in the first half of the twentieth century a decisive role was played by print, radio and photography, together with the squares full of crowds celebrating the leader of the moment, in the second half television, cinema, and advertising imposed themselves. At the beginning of the 21st century, the internet and social networks are redefining patterns, changing the forms of language and consensus. The invitation is, therefore, to write a short story that, looking at the past, describing the present or trying to imagine a possible future, revolves around the idea of populism and its transformations. On the competition website you will find some content that we hope will stimulate our work. Read how to take part, download the regulations and get to work. Your story could be one of the winners.

What is populism? Who are 'the people'? The only resource we have left is to try to historicize different experiences, to understand how the past influences the present, just like the construction of an imaginary future. On the occasion of Bookcity 2018, IULM held a conference on: Why we are (not) the people. Let's discuss populism. Its was to provide answers - albeit temporary ones - to those questions that we imagine come from the world of young people: What does 'Italian people' mean? Who are the 'Italians'? What is the history of the notion of people? Do we need strong identities? What is our relationship with globalization? And so on. During the conference we launched the competition Why we are (not) the people. Let's discuss populism, a literary competition launched by IULM University open to all high school students in the city and Province of Milan.
Literature for School. Skills in play. Almost a party, on the fringes of the COMPITA project. An educational moment, but also a festive one. Because literature is not just a subject, but also a tool to learn how to build something we like: a song, rap, advertising, creative writing, storytelling, urban design. On Wednesday 29th October 2014 the IULM University of Milan organized a study day for teachers and high school students focused on didactics for skills. The general objective was to illustrate the far from paradoxical usefulness of literature, especially today. Teaching with skills in mind means betting on the practical effects of a type of knowledge that is unjustly considered only abstract. Those who have read, commented on and interpreted literary heritage in a historicised way are developing a "know-how" (starting with citizenship skills) which has perhaps not yet been well understood, and which is awaiting further development in the world of education.
