Italy Schools

This is the online directory with the main international schools in Italy that offer an Education in English. The programmes vary from the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) programme, which includes PYP, MYP and Diploma to the British GCSE and GCE examination systems. All schools are required to satisfy the requirements of the Italian national system.

International Baccalaureate in International Schools

The International Baccalaureate Organization’s Diploma Programme was created in 1968. It is a demanding

pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated secondary and international school students aged 16 to 19. The programme has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB diploma holders from International Schools access to the world’s leading universities. The Diploma Programme’s grading system is criterion-referenced, which means that each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement. These are consistent from one examination session to the next and are applied equally to all schools.The IBO has shown, over the course of 30 years, that students are well prepared for university work. They are accepted by universities in more than 110 countries.

Since 1971, Italian and non-Italian students who have taken their IB Diploma at IB and international schools outside Italy have regularly been accepted by Italian universities according to a regulation set by the Direzione Generale per l'Istruzione Universitaria, Ministero della Pubblica Istruzione (MPI).
On 30 October 1986, the Italian Parliament approved a Law of Recognition, No. 738, granting full recognition for the purposes of university entry to the IB Diploma provided the following conditions are fulfilled:

International School Students taking the IB Diploma at any national or international school which appears on a list published by the Decree of the MPI, enjoy the full legal rights granted to the holder of the Italian Maturita, e.g. university recognition, the right to postpone military service or apply for appointment to the Italian civil service. For inclusion on the list, schools must apply on an individual basis to the Ministry of Education, providing documents which prove their competence to award the IB Diploma.

Since 1993 the law has become fully operational. Schools that wish to guarantee full recognition for IB students in Italy should apply for inclusion on the list of recognised schools established by the Ministry to:

Direzione Generale / Scambi Culturali Div. III
Ministero della Pubblica Istruzione
Viale Trastevere
IB Diplomas must be legalised at the Italian Consulate in Geneva, after which students can register directly at the university.
