Study Abroad at Italian Art Institute in Florence! Student Clubs.

According to the philosophy of the school, Art Institute's main focus is the student's personal and spiritual growth, which can be strongly affected and improved by a cultural experience abroad. For this reason, the Institute created and supports the Students Clubs Program, where people with the same interests and curiosities can develop and increase their skills, flair, and background together in a completely different social environment. This full immersion in Italian life, society, and culture is explored through various forms and aspects in order to include as diverse a range of people as possible.
