The “Burgo method” is a method that does not give generic information or a smattering: those who leave the Institute already know how to work, are already ready to enter an atelier, a large tailor’s workshop or the staff of a stylist. Although we tend to work we are always available to activate internships throughout Italy.
At the Burgo Institute the teachers are not in the chair: for 80% of the time the teacher is side by side with the student in laboratory lessons; The theoretical lessons are those useful for one’s profession, such as marketing and merchandising. The limit for students for teachers is very important for learning, for example in the courses of Tailoring and Modeling cannot exceed 8 students per class.
80% Practice 20% Theory. The Burgo method is mainly based on practice, therefore laboratories, projects and collaborations exactly as in the company, with teachers coming from the world of work.
The Burgo Institute teachers are at school from morning to evening. Students can choose the times they prefer. Missed lessons can be recovered for free.
We use the best and recognized fashion books, IL FIGURINO and IL MODELLISMO, complete and up-to-date texts that accompany all our former students and that they continue to consult even after completing the course for every doubt or need.
We know them very well, because we made them ourselves! They are in Italian and English versions and thanks to our experts we renew them periodically.
Since its foundation, the founder Fernando Burgo has never wanted his institute to sign a contract for his students. If you are not happy, you want to stop or change school you can do it whenever you want, without penalties or additional costs.
We are the only school that does not bind the student and our rate of withdrawals or dropouts is the lowest of all.
The enrolment fee, unlike other schools, is only required for the first year and it remains valid even if you change course or school branch.
If you can’t pay for the course in one go, you can do it monthly without interest and without signing any contract.
The Burgo Fashion Institute has over 60 years of teaching experience in the fashion sector: it is an uninterrupted vocation linked to Italian fashion and made in Italy, years that have led to an improvement of the educational system with innovative methodologies, books and programs now reference points for many other fashion schools both in Milan and around the world. The most important recognition is given by the fashion companies that find in our Institute the best reference for the recruitment of new actors in the fashion field. In 60 years we have witnessed the birth and disappearance of many schools, so we think that 60 years are an important guarantee on the validity, vision and seriousness of our institute.
