  • First, there are our housing services, which we make available to all students that enroll in our courses, whether for only a month, a year, or more. We also have a range of solutions available that will not only help students feel a bit more at home, but are cost-effective, as well.

  • Host Institutions provide our students with exceptional cultural and recreational opportunities both inside and outside the cities. These include guided visits to historic sites, social activities (e.g., dinners at characteristic local restaurants, allowing students to sample Italy's exceptional cuisine), seasonal festivals, special events and conferences, field trips, theatre, concerts, and much more.

  • Through its affiliation with the University of Florence, the Host Institutions also offer our students the opportunity to interact with Italian students outside of the program structure.
