The UWC Adriatic has excellent facilities, and students will enjoy frequent lessons, coachings, master classes, and rehearsals. Italian instruction will also be available and is required for singers (optional for instrumentalists and composers). An excursion to Venice is also part of this program.
Student and faculty concerts will be held in Duino and in the surrounding areas.
