New students @ Monash Prato Centre

After an intensive spring studying at the Monash Prato Centre, students from the Faculty of Law have now passed the baton to their colleagues from MADA, Arts and the Faculty of Business and Economics. A warm welcome to the new students from these three faculties who will spend the coming weeks exploring the streets of Prato and filling the Prato Centre’s rooms. July will be full of initiatives and we look forward to sharing them with you

Let's talk about law

Monash students participating in the Law Prato Program had the opportunity to attend guest talks by Leonardo Massai and Vincenza Altieri.
The aim of these talks was to give students the opportunity to listen to professionals who work in an international environment but with a strong connection to Italy.
Massai’s talk focused on environmental policy whereas Altieri spoke about her professional experience as an Australian solicitor in Italy.

Open thanks

The Monash University Prato Centre would like to thank everyone who attended our Open Day on 10 May 2013. We were overwhelmed with visitors at our evening events. We even had to turn away people who wanted to do ‘Speedy Conversation Exchange’! Safe travelling to those of you who won the travel package prizes!

Don’t forget that you can participate in Conversation Exchange every week for free at the Monash Prato Centre. See our Local Engagement webpage for more information.

Conversation Exchange is back!

Welcome to students from Monash University - Faculty of Law - and from partner universities.

After the great success of last season, the weekly Conversation Exchange - Scambi di Conversazione sessions will recommence on Tuesday 16 April.

Conversation Exchange, in English and Italian, is an easy and fun way to improve your language skills and to learn about new cultures. 

How does it work?
