Welcome to all students
Welcome to Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici (LdM)! The information and links on this page will help students efficiently navigate their way through the LdM experience, from locating the closest market or pharmacy to finding meaningful ways to engage with the local community.
We invite all new undergraduates and postgraduates to follow us on our social channels to stay updated on news and events in and around the LdM sites. Essential tips on student life in Italy can be found on LdM YouTube channel, LdM News.
Find detailed information about the offerings and student life, please check the LdM site of your choice.
LdM Advisors can assist students in navigating administrative processes while supporting their academic development. They offer a wide range of advice and services and organize social and cultural events which enable participants to get the most out of their stay in Italy.
Advisors can also refer students to doctors and counselors equipped to handle a wide range of issues.
To create a thriving social atmosphere among its international student body, LdM offers specially designed extracurricular activities and day trips to help promote relationships and meaningful connections with both the LdM and local Italian communities. We also offer internships and volunteer opportunities for community-minded participants who want to broaden their educational experience.
LdM has a range of linguistic services in both English and Italian to help students develop their communication skills. Workshops can be attended twice a week for writing and counselors are available to assist in composition and expression in English. The Italian Language Department offers weekly tutoring sessions to those who require extra help in Italian language learning. Each LdM site also provides conversation exchange opportunities with mother-tongue Italian speakers so students can practice their newly acquired language in a friendly, social setting.
