We're excited to offer some fantastic options for summer study abroad in Florence and Rome, Italy! And, when you combine the Summer 1 and 2 sessions, you'll enjoy a significant discount in price! See the links below for specifics about this discount!
Italy is among our most beloved destinations for students, and our programs offer a wide array of courses in English, across a broad spectrum of subjects, from Food Marketing and Communication in Florence, to Mechanical engineering courses and Archaeology in Rome. To accommodate for local policies around COVID-19, we anticipate students will be required to quarantine for the first two weeks upon arrival. However, the combined session timeframe means you'll still have plenty of time to learn and explore your magnificent host city.
