Thought about studying in Prato, Italy?

When it comes to studying overseas, the Monash Prato experience is truly unique.

Conveniently located just outside of Florence, and immersed in the picturesque landscape of Tuscany, the Monash Prato Centre is located in the elegant 18th Century Palazzo Vaj on Via Pugliesi, in the centre of Prato.

Against this historic background, Monash Arts offers a number of intensive units taught in 2 to 4 weeks, carefully designed to take advantage of all that Prato has to offer. Leading academics from around the world contribute their expertise to the Prato program while students have the opportunity to tour historic sites and landmarks as they study them.

3 Tips for Writing Web Content

“Online Readers Are Different. Seems pretty obvious, right? But the fact is, many of us still write the same way online as we do for books, magazine articles and other long-form and traditional print mediums.” Dave Copeland

  1. Easy to scan
    Use compelling headlines, descriptive subheadings, short paragraphs, bold important words and lists.
  2. Conclusion first
    Get to the point then expand (inverted pyramid). Readers want to instantly understands what the article is about to help them decide whether or not to read the rest.
  3. Add an image
    Include images in your text to attract attention. We all love visual information.
